For three: i'll even go as far and same nm food is superior to "authentic". I think of as nm food as " mexican food on steroids "

for four : Tex mex is average, i got family in texas, and family in new mexico, trust me, texas is best at bbq.

For five : Arizona shares the border with mexico? And new mexico doesn't? What is az even known for?? You dodged that question.

For six: California style mexican food = chipotle style mexican food (white version of mexican food w/ guacamole)

there you go , that's plenty of reasons for you. You get d for the day. Study a little harder next time :d

you also forgot to answer if you even were of hispanic origin? Or are you just a white guy with an opinion?
lol

Kansas City has great mexican food. Pepe's carnitas are to die for. If you're willing to risk having health problems eating a certain food, then it must be really good.

PS if you go to Pepes, go early on sunday to get your carnitas or else you will regret it.

The difference you ask ? The difference is that some are Mexican Americans (born and raised in the USA) other's aren't from the USA (immigrants).
Well you need to take yourself to the Mission and Excelsier Districts instead of eating at Chipole near Pier 39 and Fishermans Wharf. You know nothing about California Mexican cuisine. The best produce in the U.S. Is in California

That's correct, you also get coastal Mexican influence with Mexican seafood. New Mex is not that great, hence their rating in the poll.
Across the southwest for sure, but is CA#1. I only hesitate to say LA because it's all over the state.

California get's rated high for it's name alone, where as New Mexico is rated based on quality alone.

As long as you stamp "California" on it , by default it attracts high rates despite the quality.

I'll take quality and true uniqueness over hype, boring and uninteresting any day of the week.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, New Mexican food is Mexican food on steroids

Come down to Santa Fe or Albuquerque their's a reason why Presidents come down here.

New Mexican cuisine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The only people who should genuinly have an opinion are people who know what they are talking about

Putting texas, and arizona above new mexico solidifies you don't have a clue. Lmao :d

tex mex is a mediocre at best, texas is known for bbq. arizona, what exactly is arizona known for? Tea?

california style mexican reminds me too much of chipotle which is basically the white version of mexican food.

By the way do you even have any background culturally at all relevant to your opinion? Are you of hispanic origin?
lol
