The Place: Taqueria LuLu

Address: corner of Wheeler & Almeda (4320 Almeda Rd, 77004)

Hours: 7a - 3:30p

Hidden Beauty: low-cost Mexican food

This place was "Opening Soon!" for what seemed like a long, long time. They're open now, though, and offering some excellent food for breakfast & lunch. I stopped in for lunch yesterday and, after a look at the various menu blackboards, decided to have a beef fajita quesadilla. V. went with the veggie quesadilla, and E. had a fajita beef taco. The woman who took our order was very friendly and made sure to ask questions so we'd get things just as we wanted.

We sat down at one of the tables outside and, after a short wait, our food came out to us. It was delicious. This was one of those meals where conversation dies because everyone is busy filling their bellies! The quesadillas came with a bit of sour cream, shredded lettuce, and a little more. I didn't take too much notice because my quesadilla was wonderful as-is. The beef inside was super tasty and cooked just right, nice and tender and juicy. V. was very happy with her veggie quesadilla, too, and I even think E. ate all of her taco. That's really saying something.

A simple lunch for three cost us about $15, and the presentation and service were more than we expected from a simple little taco shack. We need to go back some morning and give their breakfast tacos a try - I'm sure they'll be excellent.

From the sign, it looks like a dive, but sometimes those places have the best food! BTW, keep up the good work with your movie reviews on Dad Blogs.
