"We've found out consumer decisions are made by women," Santiago told Eater Houston. "When we track what makes a woman decide where to eat Mexican food, it has to do with margaritas. It has nothing to do with food."

Well, to be fair, every time I've gone to a Mexican/TexMex place with other women it was margaritas all around before the menus were even cracked open.

Much like Italian food, what defines "Mexican food" varies greatly where you are in Mexico.

When I was a kid, there used to be this old, blind, crippled Mexican woman who operated a one-wheeled cart in a back alley strewn with hypodermic needles and used condoms. She would cook Mexican food on a hot plate -- we would stand there for about an hour waiting for it to get warm enough to eat, and then she would give it to us in a torn paper bag and sob gratefully into her arthritis-twisted hands when we tossed her a few dimes as payment. I don't what there was about it, but that was the best, most authentic Mexican food I've ever had. It's a shame you never had the chance to try it (and you probably never will, Carmelita -- that was her name, Carmelita -- died a few years ago from exposure, at least that's what I heard), but that's why I'll never be able to eat Mexican food out of a chain restaurant. It's depressing, actually, that so many people have no idea what they're missing.

I've never been to a Maggie Rita's and probably never will.  Tex Mex doesn't need to be a chain restaurant...it needs to be a hole in the wall next to Kroger or in some obscure plaza.  If it's a stand-alone restaurant, the parking lot has to be unpaved and the building itself on blocks. The only chain that gets a pass is Lube Tortilla's...

I hope not. This is Carlos Mencia's shiatty chain restaurant. It's gotten horrible reviews pretty much all around.

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.

I'm gonna 'fess up to being an unsophisticated mexican food diner.  What should I try next time I go out in order to expand my palate.  Bear in mind I live in the stix of Maryland, so I don't have access to POCKETNINJAS back alley Mexican Lady.

The best Mexican food in Indianapolis is in a bright yellow building just north of 38th street on high school road.  The parking lot is unpaved and the roof leaks, but if you want good Mexican food.  That is the place.  I can't think of the name because we call it Banana Amigos.

UberDave: The only chain that gets a pass is Lube Tortilla's...


I'm assuming you mean Lupe Tortillas...unless their tortillas just slide down your throat.

But Lupe is pretty damn good. My favorite Tex-Mex place in Houston is Lopez Mexican Restaurant. It actually started as a little hole in the wall place about 40 years ago. Started making bank (my dad estimated they were pulling in $5 million a year, and they could only seat about 50 people at a time in the old restaurant). There would literally be a line an hour long wrapping around the shopping center.

They finally opened a free-standing location that's huge. Nothing changed about the food which is great, and they refuse to expand, since everyone still comes to them anyway.

It's owned (at least in part) by Carlos Mencia, and the Houston Press Had this to say:

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