The fish tacos at Fuzzy’s Tacos are the reasons I pick whenever I choose to dine there. It’s often the frontrunner. The chill and relaxed attitude of the place, the one in Missouri City, is also another draw to return. The staff has always been nice and helpful, mostly young adults working, and their Butt Burnin’ Sauce is great, but not so butt burnin’ as they promise.
The fish tacos, among many variety of tacos, could be ordered grilled or fried, and with soft or hard tacos. There are small one ounce portioned of their habenero hot sauce available by the pickup area, but the butt burnin’ sauce is good enough to drown the fish in that I usually stick with that. The real star is the feta they put on top of the lettuce and tomatoes.
The other superstar at this place is the original nachos, in which is a large portion, and that, too, has feta. The combination of the feta, crisp corn chips, tomatoes, cilantro, and the awesome white queso tops as a great appetizer at any place in my book. We chose the pork as the protein for the nachos, but you can get chicken or beef. We have had all three by this point, and pork is the best option.
As much praise and giddiness as I give the fish tacos and the ever-great nachos, everything goes downhill for us from there. I ordered my fish tacos with cilantro lime rice and borracho beans.
Both seemed fresh, but not cooked long enough to where they meshed well with the rest of the meal. Fuzzy’s gives a good amount, however, but the usual duet of rice and beans don’t synch well with each other, no harmony between all items when usually Tex-Mex foods coordinate well. Also, I have had their mixed rice, which is the other rice option, and that has been terrible.
What has been even more terrible, to our surprise, is their beef fajita burrito. We like to think that since they do quite well with the nachos and the fish tacos, the burrito will also be superb. It is the total opposite. Eddie even says, “The meat tastes like something you get from a high school cafeteria.” And it does, with barely any seasoning, and the quality itself just lacks that cohesion with the rest of the other items we have come to enjoy. We will return, for sure, but sticking with nachos and tacos. And of course, no sides.
