A little bit overrated – Last time I was charged thirty something dollars for six gorditas, but you know what? They were really good. I gotta admit, the food is good, but not EXCEPTIONAL. You really want good tacos? Take it from a Mexican, go to a taco stand instead. The only thing I really really like about this restaurant is the bar (which has the classics) and the lemonade. Oh, and try to not go around midday. It gets mad crazy in there.
Friendly Food – Much nicer inside than you'd expect from the outside, everyone seemed busy. Chips are great, well cooked but not greasy, but the warm salsa was a little disappointing. Everything I have eaten here was excellent, and the staff are really eager to please. Try the Cochinita Pobil (slow-simmered pork) served with some crisp, red-pickled onion. It's their specialty, and it delivers. Clean (except for the glasses hanging over the bar) and comfortable.
GREAT authentic Mexican food. – You will not find tex-mex here. Otilia's offers quite an extensive selection of authentic mexican dishes. Their mole is fantastic!--the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. Also, the Otilia's picadillo is excellent, so any of the dishes that feature this meat I'm sure would be excellent including the Otilia's enchiladas. (Three tortillas filled with picadillo topped with a red sauce and sprinkles of cotija cheese.) Highly Recommended!!!!!!!!
Beautifully prepared home-style Mexican food (no Tex-Mex) from Otilia's family recipes. – In Short
The A-frame may give it away that the building was once a fast-food drive-in, but a recent renovation has doubled the dining capacity and added a more charming exterior. Come for beautifully prepared homestyle Mexican cooking served by a waitstaff that is alternately paternal and standoffish. This is the place for mole, pozole (hominy soup), authentic chile rellenos, cochinita pibil and other daily specials in addition to a menu that is priced by the combination or à la carte.
good mexican food – The food here is good.. but not spectacular. Its probably one of the better places for authentic mexican food in town. I really liked the tres leches here.. its similar to Churrascos tres leches but not as rich. Its also in a bad part of town and the decor is kinda lacking.
10 – This is the most authentic mexican food I have found in the US outside Mexico. The Cochinita, Mole and Chiles Enogadas are all to die for. You will also find a wide variety of aguas frescas that are delicious.
Houston's best Mexican – Delicious Mexican food at reasonable prices in a not-so-good location.
You want some huevos rancheros? – Ok, today you want to try something different right? well you came to the right spot. In Olitlia's they have real mexican food... how do I know that, because i'm the true mexican guy you want to eat right follow the true mexican guy.... ok first of if you want to try mexican food ask for something that is in spanish.. ask for some cochinita pobil!!! mmm this is pork meat with an especial seasoning.. delicious!!! or try some enchiladas..you know (those are only tortillas and cheese) those are good.. and please don't drink soda drink some horchata!! (ourshiatAH) or tamarindo (tom-o-ring-dew) something like that...those are the true mexico and just in case you want to be more brave ask for some white cheese...instead of american..doesn't matter...anyway taste like you were in heaven.
How do i know that im the truemexican from heaven !!
