Now that it seems summer has truly come to Houston, it’s time for some ice cold drinks on the patio. Here are our top picks.
AXELRAD – MIDTOWN
One of the our favorite places to day drink in Houston. Hammocks, plenty of patio seating, live music, games, and delicious pizza place conveniently located on site.
BACCO – WEST UNIVERSITY
Shady space with board games and wine.
BATANGA – DOWNTOWN
Lovely patio dining in downtown.
BOHEME – MONTROSE
All the cool kids go to Boheme. Sexy vibe at night.

Bocce ball anyone?

Looking for the best tacos in Houston? We have a list of suggestions.
They don’t skimp on the fillings and we love them for it. Unique combinations, great happy hour. Their tortilla chips are also very good.
Breakfast and lunch only at this joint, so get there early. The Dona sauce is where it’s at.
Tacos A Go-Go
Famous for their pollo guisado tacos, but pretty much everything is delicious.
I have yet to eat something here that I haven’t liked. And that back-door chicken? Yes, please.
Known for their tacos de tinga. Get three or so Mexico City-style tacos when you go here – they are inexpensive and small, so you can try multiple flavors.
Berryhill Baja Grill
Fish tacos here are hard to beat, let’s be honest.
Tacos Tierra Caliente
Cheap, delicious, and right across from West Alabama Icehouse. Add avocado, always.
A hidden gem for delicious breakfast tacos.
Chilosos Taco House
This Heights joint is all about the meats with freshly shaven pieces of barbacoa and chicken. Also known for their mean breakfast tacos and spicy salsa.
A variety of traditional and inventive tacos with global flair.
This spicy, greasy, delicious taqueria chain is the perfect place to nurse a hangover. Go for the spicy chicken and thank us later.
If you haven’t tried items off of their “secret menu”, you probably aren’t doing it right. And their queso has an incredibly loyal following.
Let’s be real. You don’t just come for the tacos….you come for the tacos, the cinnamon-y coffee, AND a churro.
