Boil it for a while, cover it with greasy cheese and call it a special?

The BEST Mexican restaurants all shut down by 3pm, and have Abuela in the back making the tortillas.  Those are the best ones I've come across here in San Antonio.  Everything fresh, homemade and far tastier than you'll find anywhere else.

best chain Mexican I've found so far is Taco Cabanna, and even they're quality has been slipping the last few years.  I avoid the trendy and touristy places down here cause they never do it right.

Back in the ancient times when I was in college, we would go to SA, roll out of the bars at two in the morning and go to a lillte hole in the wall called La Cocina, "the kitchen" for all of you pinche bolillos, and eat.  Literally about four tables in the whole joint.  It was as authentic as I've ever had.  I couldn't tell you where it was as I wouldn't be able to find it sober.  It was like we were on auto-pilot.

Taco Cabana is my go-to fast Mexican food joint.  Always fresh.  Hell, if you get there early enough they have the peppers, tomatos and the tomatillos on the range cooking them to make the sauce for the day.

This thread inspired me to go Mexican today for lunch and now all I want is a siesta.

TuteTibiImperes: To say that Maggie Rita's is a disgrace to Tex-Mex would be an understatement. (pops to full review)


Wow. That sounds even worse than the crappy place in San Marcos that all the old white people loved.

If your restaurant aint got alambres with fresh blue corn tortillas, it aint got shiat.  Put a tray in front of everyone at the table and share.  Likewise, if your restaurant has flour tortillas, it's probably a chain or some nortenyo BS.

I guess I should also mention naranjadas as a necessity?

Dancin_In_Anson: Best hangover cure evar.


The best hangover cure, for when you are coming down from an epic drunk, courtesy of Fireclown:

~  Before going to bed, take three asprin, and a lot of water.
~  When you wake up in the night, throw up and drink more water.
~  Do the puke/drink thing a few times.
~  Whenever you can stand for a few minutes, strap on your Mizunos and do a fast five miles.

Dancin_In_Anson: thismomentinblackhistory: That said, Mexican soups are underrated, specifically Menudo.

fireclown: Although I'm not sure I can find my way to eating stomach.

mooseyfate: When I'm up in Ft. Worth visiting friends and family, there are only two Mexican restaurants I really want visit: El Azteca

Haven't tried it but will do. If you haven't tried El Asadero, give them a whirl. Their small menudo will feed a small army. Righteous salsa too.


El Azteca is a hole in the wall out by that old LPMX gas station on... And I can't remember the name of the county road, but it's the one that turns into Old Granbury Road once you cross over 1187 heading in to Ft. Worth. Their breakfast is to die for. Machacado con huevos and chiliquillas con pollo are my favorites, and their barbacoa is solid.

Manas and Herbert's Taco Hut were the only places I ever went.  And El Arroyo for the del mar while it lasted.

I liked Nopalitos when I was there. Mamacita's was the awful place on Aquarena Springs. The "green" salsa was powdered guacamole mixed with sour cream. It was brilliant powder green. As mentioned in the article, it was the kind of Tex-Mex restaurant where realtors go to drink purple margaritas and unwind after showing houses.

IRQ12: Louisiana_Sitar_Club: Mexican food: good.
Tex-Mex: Stop screwing up the Mexican food.

Amen.


No offense, well, ok, some offense, but if you're looking at Tex-Mex as "screwed-up Mexican food," the problem is YOU.  That's like calling Japanese "screwed-up Chinese food."  It's a different cuisine.  You can like it or dislike it on its own terms, but expecting it to be like Mexican food and being disappointed when you find that it isn't is pretty stupid.

/Actually, come to think of it, be as offended as you like.

This. That's why it's called Tex-Mex. No one's trying to say it's interior Mexican food.

RocketRay: doglover: Non-chain tex mex food requires being in the area in and around the Texican and Mexican border.

I used to work in the south bay and there was a fantastic little hole-in-the-wall place right next to the 405 that was cheap and oh-so-good.  At least half the clientele were Mexicans.

Now I work in Irvine. :/


Taco's & Co on Culver & Michelson - Get the Cubana.  $4.56 pitchers from 3PM to 6PM, $9.99 otherwise.  Just found it a couple weeks ago.

All i know is that the best taco place in NYC isn't a truck. Cinco de Mayo on Cortelyou road right next to the fire station. The chorizo tacos are amazing. Oh, and the margaritas are made by hand with no mix involved whatsoever. And the salted beef tacos...amazing. I really want Mexican food now.

Good point.  I'm not offended at all, I appreciate it when they label the restaurant as having shiat food.  When asked I will still refer to it as "screwed up mexican food".

I'm sure if someone boiled a porterhouse then deep fried it to well done and served it with ketchup you simply identify it as a new cuisine and not screwed up steak. ;)

For local mexican restaurants, I prefer Alberto's in Pleasanton.  Way better than the chains like "On The Border".  And their house margaritas have a serious kick.  If I'm driving, I can only have one.

When I found out she was quoting Carlos Mencia I suddenly found myself siding with the shiatty restaurant.

I just figured it was the vastly more retarded-sounding Texas version of "herpa derp."

yeah, I had to look up the dee-dee shiat, too
