Located near Rice Village, Fajitas A Go Go unites Washington, DC, restaurateur Jeff Black with Tacos a Go Go founder Sharon Haynes. While Black has found success in DC, he’s a native Houstonian whose extensive resume includes a lengthy stint in the Pappas organization.

The restaurant’s beef fajitas use sirloin rather than skirt steak and are simply seasoned with salt and pepper rather than the more common citrus-heavy marinade. Cooked over wood, the restaurant’s fajitas have a strong beef flavor that gets a little tartness from pico de gallo, a wisp of smokiness from the wood, and creaminess from guacamole — truly a whole that’s greater than the sum of its parts. Tortillas are made in house, with the thick corn version being particularly compelling compared to standard versions that can be thin and somewhat flavorless.

Non-beef eaters can feast on buttery grilled shrimp, rotisserie chicken, and grilled vegetables like asparagus and mushrooms. No, it probably won’t replace El Tiempo or Pappasito’s in the hearts and minds of Houstonians, but the flavors and techniques (meat that’s cooked medium rare!) are compelling enough that it should earn fans. Limited delivery within a one-mile radius will make it a poolside favorite.
