haha...yeah, I didn't realize there was a city left in the world that didn't have good authentic Mexican food!

Even when I lived in Seoul, Korea, I had had a number of mexican restaurants near me! The real stuff as well.

For the downtown dwellers, I would also recommend Mexico City, or Cuzamil (near McDonald's on Liberty Avenue... only open for lunch). I've also heard good things about Madonna's on 4th Ave.

when i think of tex mex food i think of ground beef filling, tacos with the hard shell, flour tortillas, burritos, and enchiladas that are drowning in sauce. that's just my opinion. my grandparents were both from guanajuato mexico.

I've enjoyed Fajita Grill in Shadyside several times, but Mexico City is definitely my favorite.

Has anyone tried Las Velas in Market Square? It just opened a few weeks ago. It's owned by "PittGirl" (That's Church) and her husband.

LOL! Me too! And I just had dinner...

The great thing about Mexican, is that the "real deal" and all its derivatives, "TexMex," "New Mexican," hell, even SoCal/Baja Fish tacos are so damn good! The beauty is it is pretty hard to screw up. That said, Taco Hell is pretty lousy. Glad to hear you have it in the burgh. I would certainly miss that! I was in Albuquerque in August and managed 10 New Mexican meals in 7 days. I sweat with joy just thinking about it......

To be fair, there really isn't that good of Mexican food in Pittsburgh. But the one or two we do have are great. Mexico City downtown is the best though, by far. The guacamole is made at your table and spiced to your preferences.
