Delight in delectable breakfast and lunch tacos, homemade flour tortillas and more at Laredo Taqueria.

Located off Washington Avenue, This fast-food style mainstay has been serving breakfast tacos to droves of salivating Houstonians since officially opening their doors.

Founded in the ’80s by brothers Joe and Roy Soto, with the help of their mother’s original recipes, Laredo got their start back when the neighborhood was still known as the West End.

Today, though the recipes are the same, thanks to their fresh ingredients, homemade flour tortillas, and dishes developed to envoke memories of home-cooked meals, the restaurant’s popularity has expanded from the neighborhood to long, daily lines of Houstonians from across the city.
