Question Best Mexican Food in Porter/Kingwood/Humble?

In your most humble opinion, what is the best Mexican food joint in the greater Porter/Kingwood/Humble area?

Margaritas are to be considered in this instance as well...

We just go to gringos, itís hard to beat.

El tiempo is really good, but they are tough to the pocket book.

All the rest are about the same, nothing really over the top.

I know people that still eat at La Casita and love it, and I had rather be kicked in the taint than eat there.

Default Best Mexican Food in Porter/Kingwood/Humble?

Following. Iím building a project in Humble right now, and Iíve been trying out different spots. Noyolaís is pretty good for a little mom & pop restaurant. Their juevos rancheros & pork chops is pretty dang good, especially after a 4AM concrete pour!

Mayhem named the best ones imo.

El Tiempo is probably the best but priciest

Gringoís and Pappasitos are a coin flip as far as which one is better. Both are excellent with good margaritas

Los Cucos is another good one and probably not as crowded as the others mentioned

I'm kinda an expert on this category. My go to for good bargain is las Palomas in the old Randall's strip center. Then cross the bridge to Huffman and hang a left to the messican place near the sports bar. Then Lupe tortilla. Then Chachi's. Then go to humble to el gallo or pico de Gallo or something like that.

Pueblorittaville in Splendora where the old COALS used to be is good. The owner also runs Pueblo Viejo in Cleveland which is really good. We just left there from dinner, never disappoints.

I second El Ranchero. Their enchiladas are the best I have had. Its a little further to drive, but BETO's on 99 and Riley Fuzzel is worth the drive. If you are willing to venture out a little further, hands down Spanish Flowers on 45 is VERY good. I know the last two, are not in the cities you mentioned, but these are the best I have found.

I'm with ya...no Los Cucos for me either.


We ended up at El Tiempo...for momma. She was the one that wanted Mexican Food and Margaritas after finally getting better (she's been under the weather for about 6 weeks). I knew El Tiempo had great Ritas, the food is good (albeit quite pricey)...and it is close....and what momma wants after being sick....momma gets.
