The Best Mexican food

Speaking of food, has anyone tried Cantina Larado at that new Bellemead Shopping Center? I really like Mexican food and the more authentic the better. But I'm not so sure about this place (yet) I heard that it is actually owned by ElChicos owners.

The last time I went to El Chico's, I literally saw roaches crawling on the wall, I think it was 3 I counted. I refuse to eat there if at all possible already, but damn..

Taco Bell is the Jesus of fast food, imo. Even though it's not mexican or really related, when I'm thinking of mexican I go get me some TB.

Taco Mania is really really good, and Moe's is really nice (TexMex, but extremely good.. like a 5 star taco bell, haha).

I don't like On The Border at all.. it's trashy.. and Trejos is.. meh.. ok.

Yea, I love mexican, that's all I ever eat when I'm with friends.

I've only had lunch at Cantina Laredo and it was delicious! More on the gourmet side (a little pricier) and not as greasy. The guacamole was made at the table. The atmosphere is modern and very clean! I suggest giving it a try! It tasted nothing like El Chicos.
I also like Trejos at Westgate BC! Also Don Juanz in BC is very good and they make everything fresh... no heat and eats! Excellent margaritas!

Oh yeah, that Trejos there was an all-time favorite of me and mrs latenight. Back before we had kids.. we'd save up our dimes, go to Trejos, and sometimes split the Foster Special Back before that Trejos was any where near the size it is now. Best damn hot-sauce in town.

I agree Kramer, Superior!!! I wonder how many children have been conceived as a result of those margaritas? They are good, but come with some side effects (headaches, nausea, vomiting, possible children, etc)!

My parents and son love Superior Grill and go there often. I have eaten there several times, but was not crazy about it. However, that was years ago.

I'm sorry, and I'm not accusing you, but this is why the country looks at drugs the way it does. Those adults who are used to slapping their ID down and getting their alcohol but bash the children who are not of age but do the same thing (although since it's illegal, it's much more dangerous to obtain and use, through the black market) because they feel (whether or not they are is debatable) they are able to be responsible enough to do so.

Marijuana isn't illegal for its effects, it's an economic control issue. Alcohol is hundreds (possibly thousands, no real way to compare the two) of times worse for your body and ability to operate a vehicle (did not say you or anyone else did that).

I'm not advocating it, just pointing out the fact that alcohol (a drug, very much so) is easily talked about, but suddenly the word marijuana brings up serious business.

If I had my way it would all be illegal. Meaning anything that alters a persons senses that is not used for a true medical use. Yep maijuana does bring up serious business. Why don't you try being high on life instead of drugs?

Love their food but the noise level in that place it way out of control. We just pick up and hope they get the order right. I love the hot-sauce and cheese sauce

Well since you asked, let's go down this road:

1) You've already admitted that you have driven while high. If I drink and it's always only one margarita, my husband drives. I have been hit been a drunk driver and will not put someone else's life at risk as was done to mine. Furthermore, driving under the influence of drugs is just as bad as alcohol. The difference here is that you THINK you are in control with the drugs which is the problem with the drugs itself. The grandiosity of ideas it gives you is one of the problems.

2) Marijuana is illegal for it's effects primarily. It's not illegal because of the money little boy. Otherwise one of the major pharmaceutical companies would already be profiting off of that market. Have you ever really done researched it or just read the articles that gave you the information you wanted to hear? How many known carcinogens are in marijuana? Go read again.

3) You also wrote it is debatable whether some of us are responsible enough to be able to drink. Well honey, I make my own money and therefore am able to pay for my own mistakes were I too make any. Of course, you can clearly see that I won't give the circumstances under which I imbibe. You on the other hand are still living under your parents home, driving a vehicle probably in their name, on their vehicle insurance, on their medical insurance, and doing this all while driving under the influence of drugs and putting how many people in this city at risk while you do it?
