Tex-Mex in Lewisville/Coppel/Carrollton area

LewisvilleHounder | Jun 18, 201302:22 PM     4

I have had several requests for Tex Mex places that I do like in this specific area

I personally dine at Tipicos on Beltline just past Josey in Carrollton. Titpicos has been my cheap option for years and they are consistent. Same waitresses and same recipes, always. I usually only go for the enchiladas (Chicken or Cheese) with rice and beans. The beans are not the typical pintos refried but rather flor de mayo. Each bean portion comes with a bit of bacon grease applied just before the trip under the salamander brolier. The salsa is also never to be overlooked, two versions; a salsa fresca and I believe a salsa morita that is warmed.

If I don't want to drive as far it is usually a toss up between Mi Cocina, Cristina's and Agave Azul all in Flower Mound.

If I want an absolutely awesome Tex-Mex meal and money really isn't an issue then I go to Mi Dia from Scratch in Grapevine.

If I want tacos close by it is either Taco Hut on Business 121 and Bellaire or the taqueria in the Chevron on Corporate and Southwest Pkwy

Since I have relatives in Irving, I go to Dona Lencha on Story and 183. If you haven't been it is well worth a visit. Awesome hand squeezed aguas frescas, hand pressed tortillas and non-greasy taco meats. All tacos $1.00. Below is a taco order from this past weekend:

From left to right starting at 6 oclock:

Suadero (Brisket with carmelized onions) our favorite
Mollejas (Sweetbreads - Fried)
Picosa (Very spicy shredded braised beef) - second favorite but have a horchata or agua fresca ready (lemonade was awesome)
Al pastor al trompo (Achiote and cuimn marinated pork with pineapple)
Bistek (Steak)
