Maria Selma is a great great great Mexican restaurant. I was there a couple of times and I love it - everyone I know does. They have the best margaritas ever and very good service. One can only speak in superlatives about the place.

I almost can't recommend anything special because everything is so good, the warm salsa, the great tortilla and so on. Yet, do not miss the Camaron tacos and the Pollo chicken, they are delicious.

Try everything you can but do not miss the Ultimate Margarita, it might be a little pricey (about $10) but really amazing.

1617 Richmond Ave, Houston, TX 77006, USA
