I found a gem that has been in Houston for ten years and somehow I am just learning about it!  For National Fajita Day earlier this month, I visited local restaurant Fajita Pete’s with Renia from Gristle and Gossip and it was everything that you want in a great in a good fajita restaurant.  For all of the yummy details on Fajita Pete’s keep reading below!

Location and Setup

We stopped by the location in Bellaire and considering that there are locations all over the city, it is a wonder I missed this spot.  On lunch from work, we decided to dine in to get the full experience.  The locations are rather small with a few tables to dine in.  From what I gathered while I ate, most of their business comes through takeout, delivery and catering.  Delivery requires a $30 minimum which can easily be met for those office lunches!

For dine in, we sat and were waited on at our table which I honestly did not expect based on the takeout kind of set up.  Much of the staff have worked there for quite a bit of time and were very proud to share with us the care and dedication they take to making the items we tasted.

The Food

Here was the highlight for me! Hands down, Fajita Pete’s has some of the best fajitas in town and it is no surprise  they are reigning “Best Fajita” winner from the Houston Fajita Fest!  The fajitas come out on a steaming plate with a side of spanish rice.  The meat and rice rests on a bed of grilled onions which only adds to the flavor.  Since I keep my fajita toppings simple, it is important that the meat itself be packed with flavor and trust me Fajita Pete’s gets this!  The meat was tender and flavorful which is all you can ask for with fajitas.

Other highlights, those homemade tortillas are amazing! I also enjoyed their queso which I would describe as simple, yet good.  For those who are not a fan of fajitas, the quesadillas are a good choice too!
