    IDK. I look at that and think "what a mess".

    I'd see if they have the Cliff's Notes version of the menu.

    Back in the day in Houston I used to eat almost every day at another place called 'Dos Amigos."
    It was a converted gas station and I don't think anyone there spoke English.
    I got to know the main waitress who would bring me the daily special without even asking.
    Some things were not so common.
    Lingua (tongue) was delicious as was a Mexican style (could also have been a local abuela) chicken soup that had the chicken bones in the soup. It was some of the best chicken soup I've had, but watch out for the bones.
    I expect they had 'Tex-Mex' but I never had it.

    The Mexican place near us is the exact same way. Menu is many, many pages. And as you say, it is amazing they can turn 8 ingredients into about a thousand different dishes. Come to think of it, Chinese restaurants are the same way.

    Most chefs will not eat at restaurants with pictures of the food on the menu. As for the "art" on the wall, that appears to be a poorly chosen item.

    From tourist slop to authentic I have yet to find Mexican food inedible.

    Imagine a camping trip blown apart by heavy heavy rain. Soaking wet you go to the Dollar General to buy everything you need, then ,all dry and warm you go to the slop Mexican restaurant across the street. After some colossal watery Margaritas, that is the best food you've ever eaten.

    One thing I miss about Texas are the out of the way hole in the wall family owned Mexican restaurants where grandma is cooking in the back. Those are the places where I've had the best Mexican food.

    my wife's refried beans are amazing... to smell them cooking makes the neighbors drop over.

    there are probably 40 really great mexican food places within 30 minutes of here. (not counting neighbors and our house)

    I know a place that only has one page menu and it is fantastic and a place with a 15 page menu and it is also fantastic...

    When you come out of the woods, everything tastes better.

    I'm accustomed to the horror show that is mexican food in germany... When I looked at the menu I was fairly certain that you'd pulled into heaven for a quick bite, when I got down to the picture, I was sure.

    I saw it on the trunk lid of an Impala... or something like it. Popular around here...


    BTW, I just order the breakfast burrito and open it up and eat with a fork, save the tortilla for soaking up some salsa...
