Our local place, Roccos Tacos makes a insanely good dish called Seafood Molcajete served in a molcajete dish.

The favored Mexican restaurant of my childhood in San Diego makes something called the Cheese Crisp Special.

It is so unbelievably good, though I haven't tasted it in several years.

This isn't a very good example of food photography at this link, but trust me, it's amazing. I always got it with beef.

Chile con carne is the soul of Mexican food...mine is really good...I do it my way, which means I use beans even though some Texans don't think that is real chile. I'm a native-born Texan and I disagree. I also like pico de gallo added to any Mexican dish...which is getting harder to get in restaurants. Actually, Tex-Mex is more favored here than "pure" Mexican food. I'd take either as long as it tastes good to me. I love adding avocados or guacamole to any dish. I'd grow my own avocados if anyone could guarantee the tree would be absolute cold-hardy down to 14F or so. I live in the hills and it can get fairly cold up here. I like enchiladas, carne guisada, taco plates (especially well-done puffy tacos), etc. Getting hungry just thinking about it!

I remember a place right off the highway - I think near Crescent City, CA - called Los Compadres. It was tiny, but they made the best pork and green chili burrito I've had in my life.

San Diego, CA, somewhere in the neighborhood of Kobey's Swap Meet at the Sports Arena (not at the arena but within a few blocks) I experienced my first fish taco. Delicious!

There was a place in Gallup, NM. Everything there was great and we always looked forward to finding it again each time we passed that way on road trips!

The biggest and best margaritas Ive ever had was at a place on N. Tropicana Blvd in Las Vegas.

Their green sauce is delightfully delicious. I could drink a whole bowl of it.

Since you're talking about South Florida, have either of you been to Zona Fresca on Federal Highway? They have a shrimp burrito that is ... aw, crap, I'm drooling... delicious. We *had* to go every time we visited, which was at least over Thanksgiving. I'd give many thanks to have one of those burritos right now.

What city is it in, Federal Hwy goes through many counties on the east side? I like Rosalita's Tex-Mex off Congress Ave in Lantana. I'll stop for lunch if I'm in the area on my service route. Every time I go there, I buy a pint of the green sauce to take home.

Carlos and Pepe's on 17th st in Ft. Lauderdale used to have great nachos (individually served), but I haven't been there in years. I remember they were considered expensive back in the 80's.

Oops!

Zona Fresca has several locations but the one that we always went to -- the original location -- is at 1635 N Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33305.

I just looked at the pictures here https://zonafresca.com/ and now I'm drooling again.
