HOUSTON – NBC Nightly News' Lester Holt stopped by The Original Ninfa's on Navigation Boulevard Sunday as part of his "Across America" tour. 

The restaurant was electric as news cameramen arrived to see head chef Alex Padilla prepare fajitas over an open fire. Padilla not only talked about Tex Mex food, but demonstrated how to do the taco just right.

Padilla showed Holt how to make true Tex-Mex food and "what puts the 'Tex' in Tex-Mex," Holt said. 

"I grew up eating Mexican food, but there's something totally different about eating Tex-Mex," he said. 

Holt got the chance to try Padilla's specially prepared shrimp, carnitas, chicken, beef and baby back ribs at the restaurant.
