FAST FOODS I LOVE. NOT WHAT YOU THINK!
The following restaurants are divided into Geographic Areas, color coded for type of food. If you're a big steak & potato, chain restaurants, or trendy status places kind of person, you're on the wrong website. However, if you like ethnic foods, experiencing something new, cheap eats, or just good food, read on! OK some are NOT so cheap, BUT, everyone has to splurge a bit once in awhile.

(281) 858-1132I don't pretend to be an expert on Colombian pastries, but I know GOOD FOOD! Purchased several items I had never seen before. One was a light airy meringue with sprinkles on top filled with a creme that I think was mocha. Another was a pastry filled with what I think was a tamarind paste. I have no idea what they are called, but I enjoyed every single crumb of the half dozen or so items I bought. Not too sugary, and I found myself longing for a rich cup of coffee to go with.JUST OUTSIDE HWY 6

Quezadilla Salvadoreano, hot sauces, tamales (pork, chicken and cheese/jalapeno) Got 1 dozen frozen cheese and jalapeno, and half dozen each of the others HOT and ready to eat.
