Whenever I visit friends in Tulsa the first place I want to go (food wise) is Taco Bueno. It's just wonderful.

I know they probably stole it from New Mexico, but green chili is pretty damn good.

It's a blast (once for adults, always for kids). I do have a feeling that they will emerge from Chapter 11 without having to tear down the place.

For non-locals, Subby was trolling -- the food is shiat (in more ways than one). But nobody goes there for the food anyway

It's not just some of the worst mexican food you could ever get in a restaurant, it's some of the worst food you could get in a restaurant period.  The fact that it was still in business mystified me.

I've been all over the southwest and I'll put Denver's overall Mexican food quality up against anywhere else you care to name in the USA.  But damn do we have a lot to live down with being home to Casa Bonita.

/The fact Chipotle started here also does our rep no favors.

You're really not missing anything food-wise in Colorado.

I only went there when I was a kid, but the food sucked. Even the sopapillas weren't that great. You go for the spectacle, and hope your intestines survive the trip.

It helps that its the most ethnically diverse city in the US.

On my street theres a Jewish Deli and a halal market.

Theres like 7 million people in Houston. And half of them are Mexican.

I've lived in the Denver area 17+ years, and have never been. People say, "Oh, the food is TERRIBLE, but you don't go for the FOOD, you go for the FUN ATMOSPHERE!"

To which I say, fine, do away with the food and charge people $10 a head to gawk at the ugly place for half an hour. I personally go to restaurants for food. If there's a ton of atmosphere, guess where all their money went? Not the food. Screw that.

There is no good Mexican food here anyway, true Mex OR Tex Mex. If I want it, I make it myself...

Who the hell writes 'nay'? Nevermind, I know. The same kind of person who writes 'whilst' despite not being British, and who uses 'said' as an adjective despite not writing a legal document.

Houston isn't even in the top 30 cities in the US for ethnic diversity.

FTH:The nation's - nay, the WORLD's - best Mexican  food restaurant files for bankruptcy

FTFY.

Nobody goes to Casa Bonita for the food.  You'd get better mexican food from the frozen burrito aisle at the grocery store.

I recommend going to Casa Bonita.  But not for the food.

/The Sopapillas are ok.

Good God, man.  I'm from Southern California and every time I go to Colorado (Arvada / Denver / Springs) for business or to visit family, SOMEBODY just HAS to take me to some great Mexican place.  It's REAL Mexican food.
It never is.  It's always terrible.  Always.  Every time.
I know. I know.  You know the REAL Mexican places.  Everybody in Colorado does.  It's like telling people you don't like cats and they always say, "But you haven't met MY cat."  Trust me.  There's nothing worse than cats except maybe Colorado Mexican food.

Denver doesn't just lack good Mexican food, most of it lacks any type of food.  There are places here and there that are good for certain things, but Denver doesn't have a culture of good food.

As are Crunchwrap Supremes and 5 layer burritos after a night of bar hopping. Just don't call it Mexican food.

Yes Houston is a larger city, but percentages aren't that different.  I stand by my statement.  I had a contract job that kept me in Houston for 3 weeks.  I ate well, no complaints, but the Mile High isn't lacking.

Many fond memories going to Tulsa location and the Crystals Pizza that was in the same strip mall.  21st and Sheridan.  For high school kids in the 80's living out in the small towns surrounding Tulsa, it was a real treat.

Well made chili con queso and warm, fluffy tortillas are the bees knees
