### DDD vs. Bob's Tacos

Except that this is where I'm from, and I was going here many years before Guy came. So I'll just tell you now, it's a winner, more than living up to the hype.

Bob's Tacos is a Richmond/Rosenberg institution. It's where you go before high school for breakfast tacos. You always visit when you're visiting the town after you've moved away.  It's where, if you didn't move away, you go once a week until you die. They've also got all kinds of Mex food, but most importantly, they've got all the classic breakfast tacos. One of the reasons they're the best is the homemade flour tortillas. My girlfriend normally despises flour tortillas, and I normally agree wholeheartedly. But when it comes to Bob's homemade, fresh off the pan flour tortillas, she was converted.

 Tamale plate: Talk about your breakfast of champions, holy shit. Pork-stuffed tamales drenched in sauce and melted cheese, served with rice and smooth refried beans. Mm mm mm mm mm Guy needs to come back and try this drenched tamale situation.

The other thing you really need to know is that if you go for breakfast, they won't automatically give you chips and salsa that come with lunch, but you can order them for two bucks.  They may try to give you the sauce in the bottle, but ask them for the fire roasted salsa.
 Fire roasted salsa, good on chips, great on tacos! It's at the perfect spicy level, with lots of cilantro and wonderful roasted tomatoes. I could eat this all day

 Look at these sweet Texas beer prices!
 They have tons of fun pictures and signs on the walls.  Lots of character, lots of local love.

Warning: it does get busy during peak hours. But it's worth it. Call ahead for to go orders. Come at off times. Come hungry.
