Tacos el Bigotes

8400 S Gessner Dr. Suite I | Houston

What it’s known for: Trompo tacos, birria tacos, and even birria ramen! Walk in and you’ll see the trompo -- which is marinated pork roasting on a rotating spit.

How Chris describes it: “The trompo to me is what makes it so special, because you’re not getting that everywhere,” said Shepherd as he visited Tacos el Bigotes for the first time. After trying several dishes, including the trompo tacos, the birria tacos, and birria ramen, Shepherd had made up his mind -- “This is definitely one of my new favorites.”
