Texas Monthly's Top 50 Mexican Restaurants

Texas Monthly posted its top 50 Mexican Restaurants list recently:

As you can tell by the comments, Mexican food in Texas is a hotly debated topic. What's better: Yellow cheese? Cotija? Who has homemade flour or corn torillas? Should tex-mex be included on a list of Mexican restaurants? So many questions! I do know I'm jealous of the people who got to taste test and had the hard work of narrowing down the list to 50.

I haven't eaten at all of these places. I can vouch for Curra's in Austin - my favorite mexican breakfast spot - but I can't for Fonda San Miguel as a I got a mad case of food poisoning from there. However, my biggest complaint: Where the heck is La Mexicana from Pharr, Texas??


It's a travesty that La Mexicana is not included.


  1. Argh. You made me crave a botana!!!

  2. this picture is my new screensaver.

  3. In this blog there are a lot of talent, dedication, ability, and enjoyment, especially as the vast majority of the time. It’s a labor of love dedicated to kicking the sexism out of Beer Culture. It’s also had a piece come out on the Christ and Pop Culture blog.

  4. Then do a complete walk-through of the entire restaurant and correct issues as you proceed. jersey subs
