Just a ten-minute drive from the Lincoln Medical Center Apartments, Picos is a local gem.
Picos is Houston’s go-to restaurant for authentic Mexican cuisine. Restaurateur Arnaldo Richards began learning his grandmother’s recipes at an early age in his family’s restaurant in Monterrey, Mexico. Now, he shares his passion for unique, traditional fare from this country’s many different regions.
Innovative, Traditional Fare
From fresh sautéed calamari to red snapper charbroiled on banana leaves, to beef tenderloin smothered in Chihuahua cheese, Picos has something for everyone. There are happy hour and bar lunch specials, as well popular Fajita Days on Mondays and Tuesdays. Unique Tequila Dinner events showcase world-class tequilas.
At Picos, many unique drink options are available. An incredible array of more than 17 different signature shaker margaritas are always on the menu. One favorite is the Perfect which combines Herradura Silver tequila, Cointreau, and fresh lime juice. Another crowd-pleaser is the Ancho Rita, which mixes a unique blend of Dulce Vida Reposado tequila, ancho chile liqueur, lime and orange juices, agave nectar and Cointreau noir rimmed with tangy-spicy tahin. There is truly a margarita for anyone’s palate!
On the weekends, enjoy a relaxing breakfast of huevos rancheros over slightly crisp corn tortillas with Cotija cheese. Swap the signature ranchero sauce for a tangy tomatillo-cilantro with sliced avocados, and you have the huevos a la Albañil. Partner with a café con leche or a mimosa.
Whether you are in the mood for an Oaxacan mole from Mexico’s South Pacific Coast, chili relleno from the Northern region or a seafood dish from the Gulf, Picos is a must try.
