CAFE HERRERA IN PHOTOS

After a long string of opening dates that came and went, Cafe Herrera opened in the corner section of the Texas Building last Friday. The site was on and off crowded over the weekend, we went and checked the place out a couple of times. Below are seven photos of the space. Check 'em out and make sure you stop by for some Tex-Mex real soon. 

While the space doesn't get as great of a view as the other new-to-the-square restaurant, LSA, the ginormous side windows of the skinny space give you some great people watching angles for outside of Recycled and down Locust.

The place has a massive tequila selection and even offer tequila flights. It's only rivaled by Villa Grande and Mulberry St. Cantina. We'd try and have some sort of a tequila-off blog post, but the stuff makes us fiesty. That said, the cocktails and margaritas were all on point.

The bar might not be big enough for as many margaritas as they're going to be serving up at future happy hours.

The house margarita is only $3 and a very interesting shade of green.

The salsa was fresh and had some heat to it. We were fans and will definitely be back if only for the salsa and drinks.

All meals come with complimentary bean soup which we were quite fond of. It was deep, meaty and steaming hot.

The menu was large and pretty varied as far as Tex Mex goes. One of the times we were there, the "brisket guy" wasn't in so we didn't get to partake in the brisket tacos. Instead, the "Rupert Special" took its place. The enchiladas and tostadas were great.
