Give Me Liberty — or a $1.99 Taco

CHOW, BABY
I felt terrible for the kids standing in the median holding promotional signs for Sombrero Mexican Food (201 W. Rosedale St.). It was one of those warm fall afternoons that seemed all the hotter after the tease of a few days of...


As Pegaso’s namesake enchilada indicates, there’s a whole lot of food here. Lee Chastain

Pegaso: Flying High

In the wilds of Bluebonnet Circle, this fresh Tex-Mex eatery soars.
LAURIE JAMES
It would be easy to assume the new Pegaso Mexican Diner, on Bluebonnet Circle, is just a reconfiguration of restaurateur Monica Greene’s original Pegaso Diner in Dallas, which opened and closed a decade ago. Greene, who has c...



There are dozens of taco items at Taco Diner, including the citrus- marinated pork tacos al pastor — with grilled pineapple. Brian Hutson

Tranquil Tex-Mex

Excellent service and a gorgeous patio more than make up for Taco Diner’s shortcomings.

Tex-Mex-i-burger Treats

CHOW, BABY
There must be some invisible anti-burger barrier on North Main Street from Northside Drive to East Exchange Avenue. There are about a dozen or so restaurants in that stretch, but aside from Byblos Mediterranean Lebanese Restaur...

Extra Mustard and Hold the Mayans

CHOW, BABY

There’s a Tex-Mex feast to be had at Mexico Real. Lee Chastain

Real Mexican

The food’s not fancy, just solid and comforting at Mexico Real.
STEVE STEWARD
When people think of comfort food, they often think of deep-fried or slow-roasted favorites, from donuts to pot roasts. Whether you call this cuisine “greasy spoon,” “diner fare,” or “New American,” it’s typically...


Green chile lasagna (front), Venezuelan paella (left), Caribbean shrimp salad — and a Leenero — beckon you to Mijo’s Fusion. Tony Robles

Fusion by Mijo’s

This new joint brightens up the Near South Side.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
To the ultra-trendy Near South Side and the space formerly occupied by Junsuree Thai House comes Mijo’s Fusion, the youngest, prettiest sister in the Mijo’s family of Tex-Mex restaurants. For 15 years, the original location...

Eastward, Yo!

Fort Worth Weekly
My car knows where to find hole-in-the-wall Mexican food. It’s like one of those pigs that can find truffles, or a salsa divining rod. This time, though, it pointed its hood ornament not to North Main or South Hemphill street...
