Don't like tex-mex. Help me change my mind.

Yes it's true- I don't like tex mex, or mex food (at least what they serve up in the northeast)!

Though I'm not certain if this is because I've never had good Mexican or Tex-mex food, or if it's just not my thing.

My primary complaint is extremely dry, leathery meat. The second is too much spice with no flavor; it's as though they throw a lot of heat at you to cover up the fact that everything tastes like cardboard. I'm also a lightweight when it comes to too much pepper heat, I really don't like things too spicy (heartburn issues if you know what I mean).

Since I'm moving to DFW in a couple of months I was wondering if someone could recommend some Tex-Mex or Mexican that are soooo good they might change my mind.

*edit: I am moving to Grapevine, but am more than willing to travel all over DFW for good food.
