It's the one thing most Katyites can always agree on. Mexican Food. Here's a great list of some of Katy's best!

1. ABUELO'S

Killer appetizers, but save room for main dishes One of the new kids in town, Abuelo's had a tall order to fill to stand out among the plethora of Tex Mex options in Katy - and they delivered in the form of killer appetizer options. You'll forget all about the entrees after a few bites of seared tuna and shrimp ceviche, beef tenderloin flameado, and of course, Queso Diablo. But definitely save room for their delicious main dishes like their Durango burrito (pictured), faijita chimichanga, and firecracker shrimp tacos.

2. UNCLE JULIO'S

Delicious combo plates and a to-die-for dessert

Uncle Julio's is the perfect mix of traditional, familiar recipes you know and love, with a little razzle dazzle thrown in. Honestly, why would you ever do cake and candles again when you can have this personalized, giant chocolate pinata dessert that feeds the entire table? It's filled with mini churros, fresh fruit, and served with raspberry, chocolate, and caramel dipping sauces and whipped cream.

3. EL ASADOR MEXICAN RESTAURANT

Known for their fajitas and exotic margarita specials Recently remodeled and better than ever, El Asador has an extensive menu with Tex Mex traditional faves like numerous fajitas and combo plates, as well as plenty of Mex Mex items too. They have 21 nice-sized portion lunch specials for 10.99 and under, and half-priced flavored margaritas all day Mondays through Wednesday. If you're a margarita connoisseur, try one of their exotics like pineapple or spicy cucumber. Yum!

4. LUPE TORTILLA

Legendary fresh tortillas and flavorful menu items With "tortilla" in the name, you know that they have to live up to the hype with fresh, hot tortillas to wrap around your fajita meat. And they do. They have traditional Tex Mex and plenty of sea food options like lobster tacos and bacon-wrapped pepper shrimp. Parents love the large, outdoor patio and sand pit almost as much as the kids do.
