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.

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


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.

Please, the "I thought fat people were jolly" joke goes all the way back to an episode of "The Munsters".

Cold_Sassy:   What are you, an ignoramus?

By the look of her, she's more likely to be in the hippopotamus family.

"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.

Arkanaut: usernameguy: doglover: scottydoesntknow: This is Carlos Mencia's shiatty chain restaurant.

I read it in a Garfield comic when I was a kid.

It was also in Family Guy -- one of the episodes from the first three seasons, I forget which one.

So known joke thief Carlos Mencia stole a joke from known plagarist Family Guy who stole it from noted mediocritist Jim Davis....

It's like an unending chain of suck.

"Do you know what the internet is?"

"Yeah, it's like a bunch of apps and stuff and you can be a cranky, jerkass bag of douchepiss to people and they can't hit you."

"Anything else?"

"It fits on my phone."

Guy Fieri has to be thrilled to know that Carlos Mencia has a restaurant and the title of "Biggest Dingleshiat in the 'Culinary' World" title can now be moved.

From the look of her picture, I just assumed DDD sized cup.

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)
