Mexican in Columbia, SC

I am looking for Mexican or even Tex-Mex finds in Columbia. Yes, I know if I want a burrito I can get an adequate one at Yo Burrito on Devine Street. But how about something a bit more authentic, or, barring authentic, more interesting or more delicious? I once made the mistake of dining at a "restaurant" called Monterey, downtown on Senate Street. This was an absolutely disgusting experience. Go back in time 25 years and imagine the worst Mexican food served then, and they are serving it today at Monterey. I occasionally make it across the river and on the way to the airport or to Lexington and other points west I drive by various taquiera shops and Mexican grocery stores that seem to serve food. I have not had the opportunity to try any of them. Is there an intrepid Columbian chowhound who has investigated these joints? If so, please report! Anything good on Decker Blvd.? I've seen at least two Mexican places nestled among the Korean shops there. Or what about that big "Eric's San Jose" place on Garner's Ferry? Part of me thinks that with a name that bad, the food has to be good, but another part of me says to stay far away. Any help out there? Thanks.
