Original Mexican Cafe - Ft Worth

This place has apparently been operating in the same location on Camp Bowie Blvd since the 1940's. We went there regularly when I was a kid in the 50's and I remember it as being the real thing for your very basic Tex-Mex.

After nearly 50 years away, I have the chance to return to Ft Worth next month and anticipating a trip to the Original. My question to you lucky Texas Chowhounds is this: Am I setting myself up for disappointment or is the Original as good as I remember? Childhood memories can really be damaged by adult realities.

Thanks for any comments.
