Being new to Tex-Mex, can someone tell me what to look for as far as a decent place?

I had puffy tacos, and it was dripping with grease, and I could just taste the cheese and grease.

Everything I've eaten tastes the same, just prepared differently. Tacos, Enchiladas, Puffy Tacos are pretty much the same thing other than the outside. Maybe I am just ordering the wrong thing. Can someone give me reccomendations?

I've eaten at Martha's
Alamo Cafe (which tasted no different than Taco Cabana)
Blanco Cafe
ChaChas which by the way had awesome Fajitas. I did however feel like I was trapped in a Disney theme park when inside. My gf could not stop laughing.

Half the fun of finding your favorite Tex-Mex joint, is the adventure of all those you decide 'not' to visit again

It won't always be the fanciest building, or the most spotless dining room, or the best waitstaff, or the coolest menu layout..........but when you find your favorite - you will go back again and again and again.......

We're on a mission to find a decent Chinese, Pizza, and Mexican joint.

Well - at our house - for Chinese - we like Formosa Garden and a hole in the wall place on Nacogdoches - I'll get that name for you..........for Pizza - we like Miss Ellie's on Bitters Road and we like the pizza at Pazzo's too - out on I-35 in Schertz.....for Mexican - we go back to Las Carrates - either location - again and again and again - we also like Los Generales on Nacogdoches too - but for us, it can be hit or miss on food quality.

Ate at Amorcito's last night. Excellent. I had ordered the Veracruz and the chef came to the table and suggested I have the Redfish. It was swimming 24 hours earlier. Everyone was very pleased with what they had. Afterwards four of us went to the bar to have a nightcap and the owner came over. Great place and very reasonable.
