Good Tex-Mex tacos

carlotta | Jul 31, 2005 03:17 PM

After reading the boards here, I've found lots of great places to get tacos that are authentic Mexican or SoCal.

However - I grew up in Dallas. I don't want carnitas or fish tacos or pork or anything like that. I want Tex-Mex. I want Pappasito's, Juan's Hacienda, or in the middle of the night, Taco Cabana. I haven't been home in way too long and am hurting!

Specifically, I'm looking for a crispy shell, ground beef, lettuce, and cheese. Preferably served with thin crispy chips and spicy homemade salsa. Every taco I've tried has either been a) completely unbearably greasy, or b) totally tasteless. I live in south Alexandria, but am willing to drive.

Any help would be so appreciated!
