Aranda's was first introduced to me by my sister, when I visited, she took me there. it is the best Mexican food there is. No ifs, ands or buts about it. You won't find more authentic, better tasting mexican food anywhere!!! And they have quite a selection on the menu. Give it a try, you'll love it, too!!! I look forward to going to Houston not only for visit, but also for Aranda's, it's that damn good.
Pros: inexpensive, many locations, selection
Cons: always busy, becomes addicting, none in NE
