    authentic...

    I always get a rise, when people open up a new store & I ask them what kind of Mexican food are you?

    Many say "authentic", as if none of the other stores around are.

    There are different regions in Mexico & even flavors will change from house to house. I think, I can honestly say, I do like some of the Americanization in some (Mexican) foods. Makes the food cleaner. Probably a little more healthy too.

    Some of the Baja CA style food is pretty raw, in it's preparation. That's how we get all these Mariscos Tacos places (Mexican Seafood). Not my favorite type of place.

    Tex-Mex (Texas Mexican), around here, usually represents west Texas, New Mexico & Arizona style food. The sauces seem to have more orange, rather than red, or a burnt red color, or a dirty green. I'm kind of finnicky, when it comes to this kind of food, but, some of it is really good.

    The SoCal stuff we see, usually has rich red sauces, or clean avocado green sauces. Lately, it seems as more are trying to upscale it, or they are doing a fusion, for instance, Mexican Sushi bars have been opening up around.

    Food from Zacatecas is different from Mexico City, Baja has a variety, from Rosarito Beach, to Acapulco, or Cabo.

    Lots of varieties. Thank God for variety! Sure, some of it can be outright bad, but, at least you have a choice & some of the choices are just outright delicious! :drool::yum:

    I got pretty rattled and amped up by all the cancer talk. Next thing I know I'm sitting here all "amped up" (no pun intended) reading a whole page of stuff about Mexican food:rofl:

    I used to worry and wonder if I'd get cancer someday. Then, BAM, it all got real. Gallbladder removed. A tumor. Then, two months later open abdominal surgery, lymph nodes, and a piece of my liver taken out at UCLA. Six months of chemotherapy. Surgeries to place and remove a port from my chest. Then surgery to install a rather large and invasive prosthetic device in my peritoneum to fix a nasty incisional hernia left after (or caused by) the combination of liver surgery and chemo.

    Politics, potential causes, potential cures, financial worry's, everything, everything takes a back seat to just living in the moment. Cause that's all you got. Everything else is bullshit.

    Before ya'll tell me "hey man, ya look great!" or, my favorite, "don't worry, you don't need your gallbladder anyways, and your liver will grow back!"... Please consider- the pain from scars, the memory loss from chemo, the ongoing needle jabs/blood tests, CT scans, the yearly colonoscopy's now (cause they found something in there) the auto-immune disorder that now may additionally threaten my existence and could have been caused by all of the above. And on and on it goes. It never is far from your mind...

    And then there is the flip side to it all. Thru a mixture of pure luck, and the intuition and efforts of some medical men and women, I have lived six years beyond what was to be my original 'expiration date'. I try to remind myself to be grateful for that every single day, and to remember that EVERYBODY is going thru something, and for that reason to bring kindness and light into the world as much as I can.

    Eddie, and all who've suffered, and you dear family members who've suffered losing loved ones- I wish I could give you a huge hug, and some Mexican food!:)

    Um, ok, rant over, that is all. Peace!

    IMHO, the best "fast" Mexican food joint is Del Taco. We used to have one in Asheville N.C. back in the 80's, then it went away. About the same time Taco Bell started popping up all over town, I've wondered if TB somehow forced them out of the area..Too bad, the food at Del Taco was WAYYY better! :mad2:

    I thought for years Del Taco had gone out of business altogether, but then last year we were traveling through Utah and they were everywhere! We stopped and had lunch at one, just to see if the food was as good as it used to be..It was! :thumb:

    I too prefer the "good stuff" when it comes to Mexican food, just like my tequila and herb..I also was turned into a bit of a snob food-wise when I lived in New Mexico, southwestern cuisine down there is just THE BEST! :D

    Taco Bell & Del Taco originated here, in SoCal, in my area...

    To throw another name into the mix, there was a small Mex/American dual kitchen called Naugles.

    The story is, in the '80s Mr Naugle was married to Mrs Del Taco. They got divorced & she ended up w/ all the recipes. She changed Del Taco, but not for the better & she killed Naugles...

    For Mexican food what I want to eat most is what was pictured in the center of ZZTop's Tres Hombres album.

    I would eat my way through the whole thing even if it took all week.

    Of course, above is what the local story is...

    Here's something that may, or may not be more accurate:
