But when it really comes down to the best queso in Houston. The one that I have to take out of town friends to. The one that I’m still thinking about hours later. Which queso bowls really stand out? Which queso is really the best of the best? The best queso in Houston might not be what you think!
2. Eight Row Flint. (1039 Yale St.) The food truck that posts up behind the outdoor patio bar is hipster and legit. In addition to the fabulous Brussels sprout tacos, the queso blanco is like crack and goes by so fast you should just bite the bullet and place and order for two up front because lawd knows one serving of that heavenly goodness isn’t enough. The queso is topped with caramelized onions and gets a bit of kick from the jalapeños.
3. Torchy’s. (Multiple Locations) Obviously, this taco shop had to make the list. Their Green Chile Queso is a staple to any late-night adventure or hangover recovery. It’s by far the most colorful dish on the list topped with guac, queso fresco, cilantro and Torchy’s special Diablo hot sauce.
4. Tila’s. (1111 S Shepherd Dr.) The tacos are hand rolled by Mayan virgins. Or Carlos depending on who’s available. And the queso, which is technically queso fundido, is stuffed to the brim with fresh veggies and served with fresh warm tortillas. TBH the queso app is meal in itself and can make even the hangriest human’s worries go away. Pro tip: go during happy hour (4-7pm), grab a spot on the adorable patio, and enjoy half off appetizers!
