Favorite B-Grade Mexican in Austin

scrumptiouschef | Feb 7, 201110:38 AM

Not every Mexican food restaurant has the talent or inclination to make their tortillas from scratch.

Their food can still be pretty good though.

Lots of middling talent-level operations prefer to reach into a plastic bag and call it a day when it's time to begin cooking tortillas to feed their hungry patrons.

Places like Taco Mex, El Naranjo Mobile, La Condesa and I'm sure plenty others, put out some pretty good Mexican food.

You can't discount them merely because they don't have the ability to produce top flight,made from scratch tortillas like La Flor or El Taco Rico.

An added bonus in eating Grade B Mexican food is that it makes you really appreciate it when you finally get your hands on the cuisine of an actual, dedicated, Mexican food chef.

So let's hear some endorsement for the level 2 Mexican in Austin: The Torchy's, The Izzoz and the Pueblo Viejos out there are working fairly hard, putting out average food and this is the thread for their acolytes to give them the recognition they deserve.

Taco Mex
2611 Manor Rd, Austin, TX 78722

La Condesa
400-A W 2nd St, Austin, TX 78701
