Ziggy Smogdust has been telling me for some time of the great tacos at El Mapache and when he recently sent me this picture.....
I had to go.
Ziggy goes to the El Mapache III at Gulfton and Renwick but in my rovings around southwest Houston I've spotted another one at Richmond and Dunvale, so I headed over to that one - El Mapache El No. 1. Good barbacoa; worth the stop. Thanks, Ziggy.
UPDATE: The unit on Richmond has been replaced with one named El Tepache # III that I haven't tried. I've been to the one on Gulfton several times for the tacos, though, and their special torta, Torta a la Mapache - thin steak, grilled onions, mushrooms, melted cheese (jack?) and mayo. Just $5.
UPDATE: The El Mapache on Gulfton @ Renwick has moved a half block west; there is a unit labeled # 4 parked at Renwick @ Dashwood, just a block off of Bellaire..
