Berryhill's Hot Tamales Restaurant Review:

Tamales are still on the menu (yes, they’re even spicy), but these days we come for our fix of Houston’s best fish tacos-a commonplace menu item now, thanks to Berryhill’s introduction of the crispy fried catfish version discovered in Belize. The sweet, beer-battered fish is enclosed in two warm corn tortillas, spotted with a tasty rémoulade and stuffed with red cabbage and cilantro. Pull out most of the red cabbage for the best effect. A side of black beans gets you out for under $5, but most opt for a Baja platter of two tacos with rice and beans for a tad more. For weight-watchers, there’s a grilled version of the fish as well as decent shrimp tacos but, honestly, these pale in comparison to the original. And, if some in your party refuse to even try a fish taco, the casual walk-up counter café features a full menu of Tex-Mex offerings, from enchiladas to quesadillas to the namesake tamales. A salsa bar features a variety of mild-to-hot sauces to enhance your meal and a full bar of libations offers another kind of enhancement altogether.
