Robb Walsh's Tex Mex Feast

Tex Mex is a dirty word in the UK as it was used as a catch all term for the distinctly non Mexican variety of food that was being passed as such. The real history of Tex Mex is cuisine is a story as old as Texas itself. We are here to give you a taste of what we have back home. Specifically the home of Robb Walsh, the El Real Tex Mex Cafe in Houston, TX.
