Saltillo Mexican Kitchen
This steakhouse and Mexican restaurant offers Bellaire diners an intimate dining experience. The menu preserves favorites from owner Carlos Abedrop's former restaurant, La Casa del Caballo, such as 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. Margaritas nail the sweet-tart balance that defines the drink.
