Question Tex-Mex Cuisine....

My daughter, Son-in-law and some friends will be going to Southern USA in May- June 2019.

To include Texas in the trip...

They like Tex-Mex.

Looking for some recommendations......

When they say it's hot down there they usually mean it's their version of hot, not everyone else's version of hot.

So true, Chuck. Tex-mex ain't hot. Nor is it highly seasoned. Being a lover of south of the border food, I'm not impressed with Tex-Mex. Pretty bland for my tastes.

James, I like Mercado Juarez for a sit down meal. Rosa's Cafe is pretty good too. If they like BBQ I recommend Spring Creek Barbecue. All three are franchises and are probably found in most larger cities in Texas.

We have several Mexican restaurants in town and their menus have about 98% of the same thing. I have been to NM, AZ, CA, San Antonio, Dallas-Fort Worth and a bunch of other places. The best one was in Yuma AZ, in an old gas station. They had things Dad and I never heard of! FWIW, I was in Modesto, CA several years ago. In driving around the city, I was surprised to see so many Taco Bell restaurants! Really?
Many people think that Mexican food is highly seasoned, i. e., hot. It's what you put on it. A few things can have the spices inside.
Read an item about Mexican food- said that the burrito was "invented" in the 1920s. Not an authentic Mexican dish...but they are good!
