my wife and I have been up here (Eliot/Kittery, Me.) for the last 6 mos. We've tried very hard to adjust without decent Tex Mex but its getting tough! Does anyone know of any Edible Mexican food up here? we constantly commute from around Berwick ME/somersworth NH down to Lawrence, MA. is there anywhere up here that actually has edible tender fajitas, good flautas or chimichangas (filled with steak not beef tips of crap) homemade tortillas, non-canned beans, edible borracho or charro beans, non Pace derived salsa, etc?

Are you looking for food around Kittery? If so, maybe you should ask this on the Maine forum. If you commute for other reasons to MA or NH and want something there, then maybe there will be an answer on here. Personally, I don't know of any good Mexican food place around Kittery--people eat seafood a lot around the coast of New England.

Tacos Lupita in Lynn (also I think in Gloucster) has good Mexican Food (and Salvadorian food, judging by their pupusas), but it is not TexMex.

TexMex is pretty slim up here. I've been to Houston a few times, and you could buy TexMex (or BBQ) from a stand on the side of the road and wind up with better food from some of the better places around here. There's just no comparison.

la tambora is not Texmex that is actually Dominican food. Café Azteca in Lawrence is 100% authentic Mexican so I would check out that place. Casablanca Mexican restaurant has a location in Haverhill that you can also check out.

I think you are on to something.

I live in Texas and the wife and I are thinking of moving back to Mass. I keep telling my wife if we open up a burrito stand in Mass like they have down here we will be rich. The TexMex is amazing and it will be a hard adjustment not to have that in our diet if we move back north.
