We did a take out from Manny's at Campbell & Coit last week, I had the Beef Enchilada plate and it was bad, I mean real bad. Unfortunate because it is so close to the house. No pic sorry

Monday I took a buddy out for breakfast (my turn) and found this kind of Hole in the wall place called Dona Maria off TI Blvd. and Floyd Cir, it was pretty good for $10.99 for the plate.

There were two fried tortilla's underneath with a sunnyside egg on top of each one, then the meat on top of that. I was supposed to get rice but they put potato's on instead?
I will go there again and try the Migas with Chorizo.

Last night the lovely wife and I went to Mattito's on Forest lane just west of Central exp. She had the Cheese Enchiladas plate and really liked it, but what does that White girl know about Mezican food laugh

I had the Paco plate that comes with two Enchiladas (I had beef) rice, beans and a taco. For $13.50 it was good but no wow factor. Need to find a really good place??

Stub, what's the secret to that relatively trim waistline of yours with all this food you are consuming. Some of your breakfasts look like breakfast, lunch and dinner to me. What's the secret??? Genes?

Mia's on Lemmon has been my go-to in Dallas for 40+ years. Never has disappointed.

Only place my mother will go.....and at 88, she's been eating there like you for 40 years...so when she wants to go, I don't even ask where.....

That said, the new digs (the old BuzzBrews) are not what the old place was....food is still good, but the other building was just cool.

Oh, and the other night, my friend and I went to Marianos....hadn't been in years, she suggested it.....still pretty darn good! Spent a lot of time sucking down those frozen Margs back in the day at the original spot in Old Town.

The old building had character for sure, but it was literally falling apart. It's slated for demolition - was/is a COVID testing site, but has chain link fences all around it. So many spots like that along Lemmon are ripe for re-development.

Might be far for you to drive for just a Tex-Mex meal
but in McKinney our go to is Caesars on Eldorado.
Very good food and small bar. It’s close to us so that helps.

You may drive past a dozen decent places to get there but
then again you may love it like we do.

I’ll probably be ridiculed for this since it’s not a hole in the wall
or off the beaten path but I’ve always thought Abuelas was pretty good.
At least it can be found about anywhere and you know what you’ll get.

Don't go, it usually sucks. The service is normally decent except for one girl who would rather not be there. The same people own the one in Hickory Creek. They used to be near NCTC and the food and service were above average. The Lewisville location is less than a mile from my house and we would drive to Hickory Creek.
They built their own building on Turbeville Rd and the food and service both tanked. Apparently quite a few folks enjoy the rooftop bar.

Check out a Chiloso if you are by one. Like an upscale chipotle but different world flavor wise. Has some real spice. I always get the pulled pork bowl and the salsas are big league

It has been awhile but I use to go to Elena's for breakfast and it was very good. It is on Valwood Pkwy in Farmers Branch.
The only reason I still do not go there is, it is further than I want to drive.

Must taste better than it looks. Maybe it's just the presentation and the huge photo, but it doesn't look good.

I don’t blame the establishment as a whole, just the people working at that particular location. It’s not too far from the house and the only one I know of close. To be fair, I had eaten there several times before and never a bad experience prior to that. Don’t know what happened, someone didn’t cook something throughly (I think it was pork that particular time) or something was bad.

Randomly stopped at a “Lupe Tortilla” this weekend in Irving. Really nice chips and salsa and gave some warm beans to. I Loved my plate. Wife didn’t like getting charred hot peppers instead of any bell peppers with her fajitas. Really big menu. Very nice inside. Will be back
