A great week.
First of course....the obvious. The grandaddy of them all, the big Kahuna, the greatest cheeseburger in the world arrived this week to the greatest opening in their 60 some year history. Thank you Texas for embracing IN N OUT burger. It is win win for everyone concerned and of course many of you are finding out now why they are what they are. The best, the freshest, the nicest, the everythingest.
I had my first IN N OUT cheeseburger today in 2 years. We waited 2 hours in Frisco and it was all worth it. Just awesome how they can replicate that burger some 2000 miles away using all different vendors, etc. Great Job.
Now, for any of you other Southern California transplants who have been looking for California style "authentic" mexican food......ok...get ready.....WE FOUND IT! You remember......taco shells that are actually deep fried on site....not premade, preformed, prepackaged (taco bell style). Just about every Mexican restaurant in the metro plex seems to have those awful cheap shells.
And shredded beef tacos! Yep, not hamburger, not brisket, not goat's meat......just quality shredded beef. And what about real enchilada sauce? Huh?.....not Tex Mex Chili con carne. Excellent Beans, excellent rice. So. Cal Mexican style.
Ok, we found it. And it's no surprise, the owners are from where?..........San Diego CA. Ok..get your pen out. The place is Mariana's Taco Shop in Frisco. It's hard to find. It's behind a beauty shop at Fourth and Main in old town Frisco. It's clean, its simple, it's wonderful. It's Southern CA Mexican Food. Enjoy and tell em......Chowhound sent you.
Note the home cooked deep fried taco shells in the Yelp picture. Just like that. They have soft ones too but I like those home cooked deep fried. Not Taco Bell shells! Enjoy:
