Sylvia's Enchilada Kitchen
Owner: Sylvia Casares
Born in Brownsville, Texas, Sylvia Casares grew up immersed in the culture and cuisine we know as Tex-Mex, but it wasn’t until her 40s, when she quit her job in the corporate world to open her own restaurant, that she came into her own. Dubbed Houston’s own “Enchilada Queen,” her restaurant is a draw for visitors and locals alike thanks to her whopping menu of 19 different enchiladas representing north of the border and south of the border styles. Popular choices include the spinach enchiladas, the cheese and chili gravy enchiladas, and the Mesquite-grilled cabrito enchiladas. And fun fact: Jennifer Lopez famously ordered Sylvia’s for her entire crew after a concert in Houston.
