She attended college in the Houston area and changed her major twice (psychology, computer science, and finally criminal justice) before taking a leap of faith and dropping out to pursue a career in freelance writing.
Today, Katie writes for the Texas and Arizona pages of OnlyInYourState.com and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on the sofa with a hot cup of coffee, watching a crime TV show or scary movie.
A good rule of thumb when you’re trying to decide where to eat is to go where the locals go – not the tourists. Mercadito Y Taqueria is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Galveston, Texas with some of the best home-cooked Mexican food around. It’s always packed with island residents (which is a great sign!), and I can assure you that it will become one of your go-to eateries anytime you’re in town.
Mercadito Y Taqueria does not have a website or frequently-updated Facebook page, so you will have to utilize Google to find out the current hours and to see a full menu.
