Saltillo Mexican Kitchen
Casa del Caballo owner Carlos Abedrop found a new home in Bellaire next to Genesis Steakhouse. At only about 60 seats, the new Saltillo is significantly smaller than Casa del Caballo, but that just means it's more intimate and welcoming. The menu preserves favorites from the old location like the spicy shrimp cocktail, Saltillo enchiladas and signature whole ribeye cap — a four-plus pound, $190 slab of beef that can easily feed six — while also introducing new chicken, seafood and vegetable dishes.
Enchiladas in mole are still among the best in Houston, and, at $11 for three, an excellent value.
