You can probably tell by now I’m not a big fan of chain restaurants. Sure, I eat at my fair share of them…but rarely are they memorable. I like the small restaurants, the ones with character…and of course great food! Hidden Gem will be a regular entry on the blog. One restaurant will be highlighted…a quick, short take on a place that’s already proven itself in the art of awesome food. And if you think Hidden Gem begins and ends in Houston, you’re wrong…stay tuned for other cities!

Restaurant: Alamo Tamale & Taco

Location: 809 Berry Road

Tables: Maybe 5 (in the porch out front). This is a stand, order and get out place.

Specialty: Well…guess it’s in the name. Breakfast tacos and tamales are great…maybe not the best but darn close. They are a little higher in price than most places, but portions are bigger. Highly recommend anything pork…and I never met an egg there I didn’t like.

Chance of getting food poisoning: LOW. Clean place, and I’ve never gotten sick.

I like the addition of the Chance of Getting Food Poisoning section. That's good information to have! 🙂

I think all food reviews should include this category…right?
