(HOUSTON, TX) – Tucked away at 10130 Grant Rd in Houston, Simón Cachetón may be one of the city’s best-kept culinary secrets. Despite being open since March and having a modest following of 188 followers on Facebook, this family-run taco joint has been struggling to attract the customer base it so richly deserves.
Upon entering Simón Cachetón, visitors will find a clean and spacious dining area with seating for about 50 guests. The menu, though concise, offers a variety of delightful options including shrimp tacos, fish tacos, pollo asado tacos, carne asada tacos, and loaded carne asada fries.
But it’s the food quality that truly stands out. One recent diner raved about the offerings, declaring them the “best tacos and loaded fries I’ve ever had, hands down.” Everything, from the guacamole to the salsa, was described as fresh and delectable. Even the shrimp was lauded as the best the diner had ever tasted.
Behind the counter, Marla and her family – husband and two daughters, along with a newborn baby – run the restaurant. They buy their groceries daily to ensure the freshness of their meals. Marla’s heartfelt dedication to her customers and the quality of the food shines through in every dish.
Yet, despite all the love and effort poured into Simón Cachetón, they are only serving about 5-6 customers a day. The struggle to keep the business afloat is palpable, and Marla’s wish for more customers is evident.
So, if you find yourself in Houston and have a craving for authentic and scrumptious tacos, head to Simón Cachetón. You’ll not only be treated to some of the best Mexican food in the city but also have the chance to support a hardworking local family.
Give them a try, and you might just discover your new favorite taco spot!
