OK, enough with the pizzas, already! What's the best 'Mexican' dish you've ever had? And I'm not talking Salma Hayek (besides which you've never had her), either! I'm talking Tex-Mex, New-Mex, real Southwestern [i]comida[/i]! My 'last meal' would HAVE to consist of the [i]Camarones de la Casa[/i] on the menu at [b]Luna del Noche[/b] on Jupiter Rd., in Garland! You get six jumbo shrimp, stuffed with cheese and pecan pieces, wrapped with a slice of bacon and grilled to perfection! Along with rice and salad with alvacado slices! $17.95. Or the [i]Filete a la Parilla[/i] at [b]La Calle Doce[/b] on Twelfth Street in Oak Cliff! Grilled filet of catfish with grilled veggies and rice, along with a cup of fish soup! $12.95. Don't forget the margaritas! Frozen margaritas were invented in Dallas in 1973! by a guy using an Icee machine he borrowed from 7-11. Best margaritas in D/FW? I don't know yet, I'm still sampling![:D] Don't worry, we'll get to Salma Hayek on a 'sexiest scene from a Tarantino movie' thread, later. Eric The(...Burrp...)Hun[>]:)]

Burrito Supreme at Taco Bell.

There is a restaurant right across the border from Laredo that has the best cabrito, I don't know the name, I just recognize it from the cabrito cooking on spits over the hot coals. I have spent a lot of time in Mexico and I'll try damn near anything within reason. (no menudo) I eat Tex-Mex, but prefer the real deal. Pappasito's has to have some of the best grub in the Houston area.

Mata's in AZ. woe that was some hot stuff!

An Alberto's carne asada burrito with three rolled tacos and a big greasy quesadilla. I also miss the hot dogs in Tijuana. Around here there is no real Mexican food. It's all fancy pants Americanized freezer plan fare.

I was going to say my wife, but I see that several have already beat me to that witty rejoinder. In that case, my mother-in-law's chicken mole. There's supposed to be an accent mark over the E in mole, but I dont' know how to do that. Mmmmmmmmm... mole is this really rich sauce made with cocoa, over roasted chicken and rice. I ate three plates full, then went back for just the sauce mopped up with homemade tortillas. Served with ice cold Pacifico beer. Jarhead out.

"Camerones y mojo de ajo" or something like that, served at a restaurant in Houston that starts with a "P" - they specialize in Mexican seafood. Web search food in Houston and you will find it. It was jumbo Gulf shrimp, split on the shell like lobsters, and practically smothered in garlic, then sauteed in even more garlic. Amazing, really. So good I ate the shells! I consider myself a well-traveled, adventurous eater and semi-pro chef, and this was the best Mexican dish I have ever had. Try it if you are ever in Houston, garlic lovers! [beer] OK, here it is, Houston shrimp lovers! Voted best mariscos (seafood) in 2000 by Houston Press readers! Get it at Picos Mex-Mex on Bellaire! Link!

My dad's home made Pazole,makes it every Xmas and all the kids fight over how much they're taking home for left overs.Not bad for a Russian kid that grew up in East Los Angeles.One of my old work buddies even claimed it was better than his mom's or grandmother's.
