please don't confuse taco bell with Mexican food. It is the quintessential "white boy" food.

I don't even think I'd go that far. I usually refer to it as dog food because that's what the meat they use reminds me of. Although there was one time where my dog wouldn't even eat it.

My brother, who was born & raised here in Houston, recently moved to Kentucky and he reminds me all the time how lucky we are to have such good mexican food places around us. The farther north you go the worse the mexican food gets.

You won't catch me in one. There are alot of houses going up around me here. I have gotten to know which taco trucks to catch and which to avoid.

My kids think I am wack for eating from them.

But Crunchwraps (eww).....all day long.

Your right about that...ate at a "Chi-Chi's" once and the food tasted like crap and the Margarita tasted like dishwater.

I have a hard time finding good Mexican food in Houston. Tex Mex is every where. However, Tex Mex is actually easy to find in the north. At least in Ohio, Nebraska, and Denver, due to the large number of immigrants.

I can't speak to Nebraska or Ohio, but what they serve in Iowa is NOT Tex-Mex. 3 peices of hard, dry skirt steak in a cold tortilla does not qualify. Similar experience in Balston (Arlington Va.).

It might have something to do with the company you were with that lead you to the WRONG Tex-Mex restaurant...do ya think?

Maybe, but it also could be Iowa City.... (??) Just sayin'. Oh, and there was no A-1 sauce. ;)

There is a Tony's in Katy too. Mason Rd and Cimmaron I believe.

Sylvia's on Westhiemer near Dairy Ashford is very good for enchiladas. Stick to those though.

They didn't say...the Mrs is gonna go with the kid. She's 17 1/2 so I hope she'll get in with her Mom. She just wants to see a giant table stacked with Crunchwraps.

The best Mexican food I have ever eaten was in New York City. Years ago when my nephew lived there he took me to a small restaurant in the basement of a brownstone. No signs to advertise, about 5 tables, and when the owner found out I was from Texas the sweetest lady on the face of the earth showed up and made sure we sampled every type of Mexican food available. I remember so well because it was one of my fondest trips to the Big Apple to visit my wonderful nephew, who has since passed away. I have NEVER eaten better Mexican food since, anywhere.

The last two times I ate at Casa Ole I got so sick it took me two days to recover. I will NEVER go back. TB is what it is, a fast food joint with nondiscript stuff to eat. Best Mexican Rest in Pasadena is Montereys. JMO.

Congrats on the win Roc. It should be fun just being there, and esp seeing the game.

I love the Gudalajara locations in the Woodlands & the one off 59/Buffalo Speedway (the I-10 location always has COLD food). For smaller "hole-in-the-wall" action - Los Dos Amigos on Washington & El Palenque up @ 2920 & I-45.

What about Ninfas,Cafe Adobe,Las Rosas(in Cypress),the list goes on...I love Mexican food and Houston has been the best place out of everywhere I have been.

There was actually a good place at Marthas Vineyard that has since closed but was very suprised.

As far as Taco Bell, it is amazing! Cheap, good, open like all the time.
Does it get better?

The only good thing about Chi-Chi's back in the day (early 1980's) was that they didn't card and those Margaritas were cheap. I remember going into the one on Westheimer back then and seeing half of the Stratford class of 1984 in their loading up.

For me nowdays it's Lupe Tortilla's.

You all suck. I am in Pittsburgh and can't find anything worth a damn. Luckily I will be back in the TX over the holidays and will leave 10 lbs heavier. After living up here for 2 years I would even be happy with a Taco Cabana.

You poor mexican food illiterate bastages LOL Come to San Antonio, pick any corner taco place, eat, savor, learn :)

If you wanna do the sit and eat, try El Jarro De Arturo, Mi Tierra's, Salsalito's.

Got the Schlitterbahn bug and don't wanna drive back into SA, hit up Herbert's here in New Braunfels.

Everything else is Dogfood :)
