Just outside of West Midtown is Nuevo Laredo Cantina, a neighborhood Mexican restaurant in Underwood Hills that’s been around since 1992. This place attracts a big lunch crowd seven days a week and for good reason, they serve great classic Mexican food and strong margaritas in a space that you could just as easily bring your grandparents to as you could your college friends. If you come with a group, the chile rellenos, tampiquena steak, and lobster tacos are the three things you should split, along with a few margaritas.
