109 Ave F, Stafford, parallel to and a couple of blocks east of FM 1092, between the east and west bound routes of 90-A.
UPDATE 1/28/11 - THERE IS NOW A FOR RENT SIGN IN THE WINDOW.
UPDATE 1/24/11 - DROVE BY THIS PLACE YESTERDAY, SUNDAY, ABOUT 1PM. THE NAME IS NOW HUARACHE ANTOJITOS MEXICANA AND IT WAS CLOSED. MUST'VE BEEN A CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP BUT I DON'T KNOW IF THE MENU HAS CHANGED AS AS WELL AS THE HOURS.
These people are being very generous with the free samples, like Pierson’s. I”ve gotten a free taco on each visit (bistec, ribs, chicharron and barbacoa) and on one visit free samples of 2 different aguas frescas (they have 6).
The place is new, spic and span, stainless steel and glass, and a very friendly crew, but there is a small problem with English, sometimes. The free condiments bar offers 3 salsas, pico, onions, cilatro, curtido (they do pupusas) and free coffee.
The place is named for the place in Mexico City that originated huaraches, so named because the tlacoyo looks like the sole of a sandal. Basically it’s a thick, torpedo shaped tortilla with refried black bean filling, warmed on a griddle for a second time then topped with more refritos, salsa of your choice, queso fresco and topping of your choice. I had the al pastor on my first visit. On the second visit the man was trying to interest me in the one described I the Press review with 2 eggs but when I wanted something else he offered any other 2 toppings and I went with carnitas and longaniza con nopalitos. I liked both of these better than the al pastor and all 3 better than the bistec taco (gristly) and ribs (rib tips, including cartilage). However, on another visit the bistec taco was excellent.
Tacos are made with hand-made tortillas and are good, too. The lamb barbacoa, available only on weekends, is excellent, too.
They serve breakfasts, tortas, caldos (menudo on weekends), but no desserts. I was bummed one time when I went in determined to try their flan or tres leches only to discover the menu doesn't list any postres.
I haven’t gotten a good picture of the huarache but this place is going to be a regular for me and will save me a lot of gas, making it less necessary to drive up to Jarro Café on Gesner or Gerardo’s on Patton.
