the owners sent us to a place, gave us directions; i can't even remember where it was now, out in the boonies! it was just a small place, about the size of a small garage in the middle of this little tiny town, you would blow past it if you didn't have the directions!  only had picnic tables, no alcohol, but you could bring your own in a paper bag.......... :D  yes we did!

i tell you what, the food was excellent! made to order and  made your eyes run and the fresh deep fried sopapillas were incredible! sorta helped with the heat on the food.  the place got discovered and received some 'national' food award.


Sometimes those are some of the best places!!!
Reminds me of a trip we made to Costa Rica for a wedding.  Away from the touristy areas you could find some of the best food and seafood.  We stopped in one place called Dona Maria's.  It consisted of 6 stools and a tv with novellas on. We were the only customers and she cooked up a feast for us could not be matched any where else.  At one point she picked up the telephone and asked someone to bring her something.  It was an ingredient for our meal and her daughter obviously brought it from home.  Would that be done in the U.S.?  No, but what a great experience!
I and others did get food poisoning but not from any food eaten at road side diners.  It was from the caterers at the wedding.  Awful!

Ya'll just need to saddle up and come down for a visit to see me.  I'll introduce you to real Tex-Mex.  A step above what I've tasted in northern states' Mexican restaurants.

I absolutely love Mexican food, as long as it isn't over-the-top spicy. I love tacos, burritos, etc., and wouldn't you know it, the closest Mexican place is in Halifax (Taco Bell). :sad:

Les,  I popped into a little Mexican take out place.  They had potato tacos on the menu as an appetizer.  I ordered them and got four full size potato tacos for $4.99.  They were good and I shared half of my tacos.  Everybody liked them.  I thought about making them at home but didn't want to deep fry flour tortillas, so I came up with quesadillas.  That's probably too much information!   :laugh:
