I recently tried Del Taco for the first time the other day and I think that might just be the best chain restaurant ever to exist. Its like Taco Bell but the quality is insanely higher and the prices are somehow lower, you can you get a half pound breakfast burrito for like 2 dollars. Another pro restaurant would be Taco Cabana down in Texas. Theres also a mexican place down in San Antonio that is open 24/7 serves pizza and breakfast all day and has frozen margarita machines ready to go all day I wish I could remember the name.

suggest some good mexican places to try bonus points if you can come up with a place between central california and the bay area

if you're listing del taco as pro tier then you need to seek help

If I want to eat cheap I'll go to DT. Most Alberto's in So Cal are pretty good with a few exceptions. Molcasalsa in La Habra has the best super fries you have ever had.

Correct that DT is not pro tier. It's for poors like me.

Coming from a part of the country where all we had for mexican food was taco bell makes del taco seem supreme. Albertos and Robertos are both really good too I used to get confused which is which when I lived in socal

If you're in Texas go to the Mexican grilled chicken places like El Pollo Regio. Or anything with the words "Tacqueria" or "Tortilleria" in the name.

But I also really like Tex-Mex though people consider it "not real Mexican food" who gives a poo poo

we have three "indie" taco places on one corner in food paradise victoria bc

one is "authentic" but its bland as heck and staffed by high school kids and not licensed to sell beer so gently caress them

one is run by white surf dudes so its not really mexican but its my favorite they have an awesome crispy fish burrito its amazing

i havnt tried the other one but its looks very legit and it sells beer so im already giving it a favorable yelp review

Also Taco Cabana is some nasty poo poo.

I only ate there late night because they stayed open 24 hours when I couldn't find anything else and I was in desperate moments

mexican food is good if you want something cheap and delicious

tex-mex is good if you want to gorge on meat, cheese and margaritas and then feel sick for 24 hours because you ate too much

both are great depending on your needs

My experience with these places varies. They're either really good or they're going to depth-charge your sphincter a few hours later.

theres these things springing up near me called "taco bus" that are pretty amazing. theyre open late and have a walk up. the main kitchen is like an old school bus. they are in downtown areas too so you can get shitfaced then take a walk down to taco bus and yeah. basically if your eating at a chain you are human garbage

There's a Mexican place in a strip mall near where I live and I assume that it's a pretty good place because the only customers I ever see inside are Mexican.

lol i been to tippy's once in my life and the atmosphere there was so oppressive i was actually relieved when i left. aside from myself and 2 friends there were like 3 people there, sitting by themselves, just looking like their liveswere so lonely and meaningless that this was it, this was their final poo poo meal to top off their poo poo life, theyve decided to kill themselves in the tippy's taco parking lot after they finish their terrible enchiladas.

This is true. Also, if you're in Athens, Sr. Sol is the best "Mexican" restaurant.
