Tacos in Dallas are shameful

Eddiehaskell7 | Dec 13, 201102:49 PM

Look, I know Tex Mex is big here and that's fine. But why is it? Why is it virtually ever single Mexican Food Restaurant has taco bell type, preformed, premade , crappy taco shells? I mean, I think I can count on one hand, the restaurants the actually deep fry and make their own taco shells. And that is very important in setting apart a taco from a great taco.

Mariana's Taco Shop in Frisco is one of the few and they are EXCELLENT. Southern California style. I just happened to read about this "Taco Joint" in Orange CA and they have a picture of the tacos and there they are......homemade deep fried taco shells. Not the cheap preformed premade taco bell shells which are in even the more upscale Mexican Restaurants here.

I Just don't get it. Take a look at these tacos in Orange CA. Those are Tacos. And so are the ones in Mariana's Taco Shop in Frisco, which happens to be the best Mexican Food place I have yet eaten at here. Excellent!
