With the holiday season upon us and countless visitors invading our personal space, it's a good time to address this issue because we have to have some place to take these people.
So many possibilities. So many suggestions.
Don't sweat this; I got this.
Joe T's? No. Best atmosphere, but the rest ...
Mi Cocina? Hard to argue against the nachos, but it feels a bit too chainy.
Mexican Inn? Not awful, but not the best.
According to my bestest friend, who is Mexican, at a minimum at least half of the patrons must Hispanic in said restaurant. By his logic, this means the Mexican food has been authenticated and is good.
If you are going to do Mexican food in Fort Worth, you have to hit the North Side. And when in the North Side the best place is El Asadero Mexican Steakhouse and Seafood.
Located on 1535 North Main Street in Fort Worth, this is the best Mexican restaurant I have found in The Worth.
This place is not expensive, and the menu features all of the traditional dishes you will want. It also has a wide array of Mexican steak dishes and seafood items. None of the stuff on here is bad. Try Mama's Special - four flautas topped with fresh cabbage, sour cream, tomatoes and jalapenos in lime juice.
It's the ideal spot to take your Yankee relatives from the north who want to know what real Mexican food taste like.
(BTW - If you have your own suggestions, feel free to help a brother out. We're all in this together.)
