Full-service dining, featuring award-winning Tex-Mex and interior-of-Mexico cuisine, finds a home in west Houston at Sylvia’s Enchilada Kitchen. Chef and owner Sylvia Casares draws a faithful foodie following for her unique dishes made from homemade recipes and fresh ingredients.
Dubbed the Enchilada Queen, Casares is famous for her 19 regional specific varieties of enchiladas, vegetarian plates, mesquite wood-fire grilled fajitas, as well as some of the best margaritas in Texas. Can’t decide what to order? Go for one of the Zagat-rated restaurant’s two sampler platters—“North of the Border” or “South of the Border”—and dig into four of Sylvia’s most popular enchilada varieties. Save room for dessert, too, because the Tres Leches is not-to-be-missed.
