Best Tex-Mex food, i.e. not Rick Bayless or organ-meat-serving, regional-taqueria-skewing Mexican foodEast Side, Food & Drink No Comments »
Open since 1961 by the Cornejo family, this is one of the city’s oldest Mexican spots. With some old-school banquettes, Aztec-looking wall accoutrement and a light-up cactus, it’s kinda like the old-man dive-bar equivalent of a taqueria. The deep-fried, glistening corn tortillas here stuffed with crumbly Mexican cheese, crisp iceberg lettuce and well-seasoned meat of your choice (we love the green chili pork), beat the pants off the industrial hard shells at Taco Bell.
