Good Tex-Mex in Tampa Bay?

UptownKevin | Oct 16, 2006 08:01 PM

Hey guys, I'm looking for Tex-Mex and I've had the hardest time finding something good. I admit I've only tried a few places, but that's what this board is for, right?

Yes, there was a giant thread recently about "real" Mexican food and I've had plenty of great Mexican food, but I'm looking for the Texas variety. I've tried Estella's (two locations) and will never go back. Miguel's on Kennedy has been suggested, but I found the food, well, pretty bad. Horrible bagged tortillas, not fresh guacamole and greasy chips with ketchup salsa.

The closest I've had was at Agave on St. Pete Beach and at Los Mariachi's in Clearwater. Both were pretty decent and even though they claimed to be "authentic" Mexican, they were both similar to the Tez-Mex style.

Any help? Thanks,
