I do my advance judging based on the clientele when I go to an ethnic restaurant. I know there's a good chance for excellent food if there are Asians eating at an Asian place or Hispanics at a local tacqueria(did I spell that right?).

My plan is to try all those little local places. I still want to try that one on Main Street too. There's lots of good Mexican here.

That ain't always true. My in-laws are Chinese. They always go for the cheapest place, irrespective of quality. If my wife and I want quality, we have to dine out alone -- without the in-laws. The in-laws would ***** about the price throughout the entire meal, completely ruining it, even if we're paying.

Casa Don Juan. Casa Don Juan
The previous restaurant that was in that place had been such a greasy spoon for about 40 years and was so bad I was afraid to try Casa Don Juan. I'm glad I did. It is very good. But I never think about it unless we're going to First Friday.

One of my favorites in Laredo was The Tumble Inn, so called because the old wooden building sat on the side of a creek, and sagged towards the creek like it was ready to tumble in.

I love Frank & Fina's, but I may have a new number one. After a year of driving by Bonito Michoacan 3 days/week every week and seeing the parking lot full of cars, my wife and I finally stopped in for a late lunch last week on our way home from Wynn. Our meals were delicious and the service was fast & friendly without being obsequious. I'll have to visit a couple more times before supplanting F&F's as #1 though.

I love all of the above restaurants mentioned, even those from other posters such as Supermex and Agave. You have to really screw up some Mexican style food for me not to like it
HAHA .. I agree with you.


Its just that Chevy's isn't what comes to mind when I think "best mexican food". Its Applebee's with beans and rice.

I've eaten at Roberto's a couple times. That's the main chain in town, ne? For the most part, I didn't care for them that much.

I think they are kinda hit and miss with locations. I frequent the one in the Fabulous Freddy's on Durango/Elkhorn and it's usually great.

I'm certainly going to have to check out Viva Mercados and Frank And Fina's after the praise they got on here.

One night we were on our way home from exploring out and about, we stopped at the Fiesta and Texas Station, we stopped for gas and there was a tent set up and dang it smelled awesome! There was a crowd there so we had to go check it out and the people in line were saying it is the BEST Mexican fare around! They were just cooking it up right there on the corner. Didn't get any but the next day I was still thinking about it and wished I would have! Has anyone else come across that? If so, did you buy something? Was it as good as it smelled?
