Believe it or not, Humble, Texas is your best bet in the ENTIRE COUNTRY for authentic Mexican food. There are more non-chain restaurants per capita than anywhere else in America! Here are nine of the very best:
1. Taqueria La Lupita
Many patrons claim this to be the #1 place to get Mexican food in Humble. The tortillas are fresh, the rice is aromatic and flavorful, and the Horchata is the best in town.

2. Monterey's Little Mexico
You'll find some interesting dishes at Monterey's Little Mexico. In addition to the classics like enchiladas and tacos, the menu features a "Mexicana Burger" with Monterrey Jack cheese, jalapeno, avocado, and BBQ sauce as well as crusted chicken topped with cheese, grilled shrimp, and sauteed mushrooms.

4. Dos Gallos
Everyone knows that us Texans judge a Mexican restaurant solely on its chips and salsa. Luckily, that means Dos Gallos gets the stamp of approval! The tortillas are homemade, the salsa has just the right amount of kick to it, and the chips are delightfully crunchy. The cheese enchiladas are reportedly out-of-this-world, as well!

5. El Jimador Mexican Grill
El Jimador is so authentic, the waiters will automatically talk to you in Spanish unless you say otherwise! The queso flameado comes with either meat or veggies mixed in (I recommend the beef - it's delicious in all of the dishes!) There's also a very large variety of margaritas to please everyone's taste buds.
