Mexican Food in Dallas Metroplex

Eddiehaskell7 | Oct 31, 2009 07:59 AM

I live near Plano, the city is "The Colony." I moved here after growing up in Southern California, I am 51.

Unless somebody here can show me otherwise, I guess we have to accept the simple fact there is not a single Mexican Food Restaurant in all of the Dallas Metroplex or North Dallas area that serves food that even slightly resembles what we have in Southern California? Specially, where they make tacos using their own deep fried corn tortillas instead of the premade, preformed taco bell shells we find here at even the "nicer" Mexican restaurants. Or where the enchiladas are topped with real enchilada red sauce (i.e. Las Palmas sauce in the stores or what you get in Southern Cal at places like El Farolito in Placentia OC or Casa Blanca in Hacienda Heights, CA or El Tepeyac in East LA).

They use Chili Con Carne on their enchiladas here.

Look, I know everyone has different tastes and if I grew up here, I would probably like this Tex Mex stuff. I am not being critical. It's just you would figure there would be at least one Mexican Restaurant that serves it the way they do in so many other places especially when you consider that so many people are moving here from California and elsewhere.

Well, thanks. I guess today it's going to be another taco at some Mexican Restaurant with a taco bell shell and a sauce on my enchilada that I am used to putting on my hot dog to make a chili dog.......unless anyone can help me......:)
