I haven't been following this one. How did a thread about Mexican restaurants turn into an argument about ethnicity?

Maybe we're all way too bored?...

Ummm....it was pretty clear to me that Saxluvr was only saying that Mexican-American food "wasn't the real deal" in the context that it didn't appeal to her taste in Mexican food. Pogo has now been offended by this simple statement that she is somehow calling him out....What's next; someone from Texas going to jump up and down about Tex-Mex?

Nobody's talking heritage here, we're talking food. Sheese.

Just in case anyone is interested, I happened by accident to go to El Super Taco (across from the electrical power plant on south Academy just before Hancock) and their tacos carnitas are fantastic !

El Super Taco does have some good food and Monicas isn't to bad either. I also like Carlos Miguels (on the westside) and Cafe El Paso on N.Nevad is really good too. Amanda Fondas is way over rated and so is Henry's in OCC. If want a pretty good Spanish/American breakfast place try Rudy's on South Nevada and Western Omelete off of Spruce Street.

Henry's used to be my parents' restaurant's competition. When the original owners retired and their kids took over and the food when down hill. Same thing with El Taco Rey downtown on Colorado Ave and Wahsatch.. Used to be good food, but neither one are any good now.

So do your parents still have a restaurant? I think I heard Henry's changed to George's now.

No, At one time, we had 2, La Paloma and the Falcon. La Paloma (on Colorado Ave under the I25 overpass) closed in the mid 80's (I was in Europe in the Army) and the Falcon (corner of Nevada and Colorado Ave) closed in the early 70's when we expanded La Paloma. Excellent food, not like you can find anywhere around here anymore, except my kitchen SMILE Maybe I should open a restaurant?

I think I heard King Chef moved into the old Big City Burrito joint so there castle might be empty.
