    There are no good Mexican restaurants in this town that I've eaten at...

    I've been to one of the best in town, and it doesn't even compare to a couple of the semi-fast mexican food I can get in Greeley, Colorado.... but I guess I've been spoiled in Colorado with good mexican food... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    And nothing I've had compares to the green chili made by a cook at the nursing home I used to work at... that stuff is so damn hot... yet good enough to keep you going back for more /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Sorry to tell you Colorado doesn't have good mexican food either. I am from AZ and when I was in CO I didn't find any good mexican food. But I am spoiled because my best friend is mexican and his mom makes great food. The really good stuff. True mexican food from true mexicans

    There used to be a place down in Dalhart, TX that made some great stuff......

    Out here in Cali though, about the only real Mexican food I can find is on the trucks.

    All the restaurants out here have been wussified for the gringos.........

    I must have the best of both worlds /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif i live like 10miles form mexico /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif i can find some of the best food there and wait till you try the mariscos(seafood) in rosarito or ensenada. i gotta go there. a few months ago we had some busness reps drop by from northern USA, we took them to mex for dinner. their local mex restaruant has not been the same since.
    all this talking about food makes me hungry, i;m gonna go out and get some taquitos...

    Umm... can we say Greeley, Colorado? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif It's the closest one to me anyway... but if you go percentages, it's probably about as illegally populated as some bigger places /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Brighton has alot too. You can find some decent mexican food there from what I understand. Fort Collins doesn't have any good mexican food though, or at least I couldn't find any.

    The Armadillo in Fort Collins had some decent food, but it was bland. No spice. The gringo's in CO don't understand spice so they don't make the mexican food there spicy like it should be.

    [/ QUOTE ] Don't know what Greeley is like, but in South Omaha, there is alot of illeagle mexicans. I go to this one little restront on 24th and H st where none of them can speak english, and they don't have green cards. This place normally servers only mexicans. I went there the first time with a couple mexican friends. I just point to what I want on the menu, LOL. It's real mexican food. Sets your mouth on fire going down, and burns just as bad, if not worse, coming out. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
