What's the difference in all the "Tex" foods? [moved from Texas]

Greek oregano is green,more expensive, aromatic and flavorful. Mexican oregano is cheap, brown, musty and flat tasting. The best gourmet cooks and restaurants ONLY use Greek oregano!

Angies has carnitas? Yum! Where is the Omelettery? We live in the Hill Country...a barren place for foodies. We do like the Y Bar & Grill and Flores on Wm. Cannon @ 290 W has a pretty decent spicy salsa. We have not been to Fonda San Miguel yet (we're newbies) I grew up in So. CA and learned what good Mexican and Asian food tastes like.

I'm in the Foodservice Equipment Mfg business and I avoid eating at chains(especially for breakfast), unless they are independent. I like my eggs fresh, with bright orange yolks; my ham to come from a hog; my bagels dense and chewy; my Hollandaise sauce made from scratch and no grits, ever! I'm a purist...

I love carnitas but who (here) makes them correctly (not steamed)? How about salsa de Arbol? Calabacitas? Enchiladas Verde made with REAL crab? Homade thick corn tortillas?

Where can I get:
Classic Mexican food? (not Tex-Mex or Sonoran)
Authentic Carnitas? (Red Robin has them but they're rather bland)
Really great bakery?
Best eggs benedict?
Classic breakfast food? (Not Migas or anything stuffed in a tortilla)
Best fish tacos?
