Putting the Tex Back in Mex

In L.A., you’re usually faced with a choice between authentic Mexican and Cal-Mex. On an obsessive quest for Tex-Mex, AdamFoodie has settled on Joselito’s and the original El Cholo on Western. Marix TexMex is okay in a pinch, he adds.

Nick’s Taste of Texas has the goods, says JAB, flour tortillas and all. Brisket tacos are good too, adds anniegg.

And in the USC area, La Taquiza has excellent (if greasy) fajitas and yummy homemade tortillas, says chaussonauxpommes.
