I’m Juliette! My husband, my 6-year-old and I love going out to eat and we are sharing our restaurant finds with you.

El Real in Montrose is our pick for this week. I drive by it everyday on my way to work and I keep telling myself that we have to go!

El Real HoustonI love the decor, it is classic Mexican style. Their first huge room has a wall with funky chairs and a big screen showing old cowboy movies in black and white (a nice change from sports!).  They have a small patio overlooking Westheimer and a second floor, where we sat. Their bathrooms are clean and well-equipped.

The atmosphere is casual and the lightning is dim and intimate. A highlight is the little booth where they make the tortillas, my son loves watching them being made.

Ah the tortillas!!!! This is why we went back! We all remembered how good they were and we were not disappointed on Saturday! They are unique, fluffy and fresh.
