Mex chain restaurants

USA Today, by Samantha Neudorf

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 1/5/2014 5:42:18 AM

The votes have been tabulated, and The Daily Meal is pleased to announce the 15 best Tex-Mex chain restaurants in America. We rounded up a list of 50 top Tex-Mex chain restaurants around the country and asked you to determine which one is the best based on several criteria: the variety of menu options offered, the best rice and beans, the use of fresh ingredients, the most authentic/unique dishes, the best chips, salsa, and guacamole, and the most flavorful cuisine overall. Now, we have narrowed it down to the top 15 based on your votes. Americans love Tex-Mex. There is

Here in NC, I sadly have to settle for Chipotle and On the Border. (Sigh) Chipotle is ok, especially the burrito bowl for low carb dieting, but I have never thought of it as TexMex! Glad to see Chuy´s on the list.

Any visitor to Fort Worth has always been pointed to Joe T. Garcia´s on the North Side. My opinion is that the fame has adversely affected the quality of the food.

Pappasito´s is #15???

This list is bogus. Pappasito´s should have been #1, based on the restaurants named in this poll.

uh, no. Any list which includes Taco Bell and Del Taco is bogus. And I have my doubts as to the authenticity of anything begun outside of Texas. Wherever Samantha is from, she is no judge of decent Tex-Mex.

I didn´t know there WERE 15 Tex-Mex chains. Anyway, locally my vote goes to MiPueblo. Family-run, 12 to 15 sites, great service and consistently good food. (NC Greensboro area) Have to agree about Taco Bell...what´s in that meat???

Eating Mexican Food in the 50s in Austin was the No. 1 choice. Sooooooooo good and whoever decided to put Taco Bell on the list does not know how good Mexican Food tastes. (we didn´t call it ´Tex-Mex´ either!)

Samantha must live where there are no real Tex-Mex restaurants. Seems her list is mostly chain driven restaurants.

Here in Texas we have numerous Tex-Mex restaurants started by real Tex-Mex families that put to shame the food sold by the restaurants she has listed. Bogus list.

Sam come to Texas we´ll feed you real Tex-Mex!

I was fortunate to spend a few days in San Antonio recently, where I had tamales from Adelita Tamales & Tortilla Factory. Not a chain, so it won´t be on this list, but I sure enjoyed the tamales.

But Samantha must not get out much at all because she didn´t include MIGHTY TACO on her list! Ok, it´s only a Western New York chain, but they have the very best commercials which are actually parodies of ads for all kinds of companies. For all you Buffalo/WNY expats, here´s the ad for "Rockin´ HIlls," the hippie nursing home:

After tasting New Mexican food, I find Tex-Mex not that good. The best New Mexican is Anita´s. Started in Albuquerque, now with locations in NM, CO, and NOVA, that is authentic food.

And for all the food snobs, Taco Bell is good for inexpensive, American-influenced, Mexican styled food.

Agree with those who live in Texas -- no silly chains for us -- too many Mom and Pop places to eat. We love Pico´s in Houston -- just ate the nouveau Tex Mex dish of smoked salmon nachos with chipotle queso fresco -- DIVINE! Papasitos and Gringos are good second choices. Our granddaughter loves a local Stafford restaurant -- El Vaquero. Ate at Joe T´s years ago and thought it uninspired. Chuys also is overrated -- too much cheese on everything. New Mexico, what´s with the egg on everything? We tried it once in Albuquerque and then made sure future orders included "skip the egg."

The best thing about Taco Cabana is that you can buy home made (sort of) flour tortillas by the dozen (still warm) and watch the ingenious machine make them. Delicious.

ALBANY—Andrew Cuomo put in a written application for Hillary Clinton´s U.S. Senate seat, emphasizing in conversations with then-governor David Paterson that he was “available” for the job, according to interviews and newly available records. In addition, Kirsten Gillibrand, who was ultimately selected by Paterson to succeed Clinton, cemented her standing by commiserating with the governor after a mean-spirited parody on "Saturday Night Live;" teachers´ union leader Randi Weingarten was the only candidate who returned Paterson´s consolation call after the Gillibrand pick in Jan. 2009; and Caroline Kennedy got an unsolicited boost from Afghan president Hamid Karzai.

Good Lord, can someone just give Tapper a Sunday show and be done with it? As “Meet the Press” flails into third place under the leadership of David Gregory, and the institution of the Sunday show rides the downward slope toward irrelevance, NBC sent a psychologist to Gregory’s friends and family on a hunt for Gregory’s charm in an odd attempt to right the ship.

It´s not just kids who are overdoing screen time.

Dr. Jenny Radesky is a pediatrician specializing in child development. When she worked at a clinic in a high-tech savvy Seattle neighborhood, Radesky started noticing how often parents ignored their kids in favor of a mobile device. She remembers a mother placing her phone in the stroller between herself and the baby. "The baby was making faces and smiling at the mom," Radesky says, "and the mom

Spanish art dealer Jose Carlos Bergantiños Diaz helped persuade wealthy buyers to shell out millions of dollars for works he claimed famous masters of modern art had painted. But in reality, U.S. authorities allege, the works he sold as Rothkos and Pollocks were fakes painted by an artist he met on a Manhattan street corner. The alleged scheme stretched for nearly two decades, involved several New York art galleries and earned the conspirators more than $30 million, according to an indictment unsealed in federal court on Monday. Last week, authorities closed in on Bergantiños and his brother, arresting them in Spain, federal prosecutors

The latest example is a teenager who, according to authorities, stowed away on a 5 1/2-hour flight from San Jose, Calif., to Hawaii. While the number of known stowaway attempts is few, people have survived with surprising frequency. HOW DANGEROUS ARE THE CONDITIONS? Very.

There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture.

With more than 1,300 cracks marring its exterior shell, the rotunda is closed to the public from April 12 through April 28, in phase one of the two-year, $60 million restoration project. During the 17-day closure, workers are installing safety netting around the iconic 8.9 million-pound cast iron dome.

Monstrous cruise ships that ruin the view – and even block out the sun – for people strolling down Venice’s Giudecca Canal, will, from the end of November, no longer pass close to the lagoon city, cruise ship owners have pledged. From that date vessels weighing over 96,000 tonnes will eschew the route that currently sees them pass close to St Mark’s Square, while, according to campaigners who want them banned, unleashing huge currents that threatens to undermine Venice’s delicate foundations.

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.
