I'm here for Tex-Mex vs. Cali-Mex talk.

Roll it all up together in this thread.  Like a big burrito.  One of the good ones from Texas.

Austin style Tex Mex cheese enchiladas, frito pie, tamales with chili and cheese topping are basically the same dish.

Texas Chili Parlor is underrated as a tex-mex joint.

When they actually have chili, apparently.

Hits close to home. Just had a few lengua tacos that were off the charts.

I hit this place after the Alabama game. That is the only reason I know about it. I am am an Arandas on Oltorf guy. Pinches tacos was good though, especially the women in line.

Very true.

Incidentally, despite making them famous in a song, Guy Clark hated mad dog margaritas. He said, and I quote, that they tasted like "a combination of petroleum and sea water."

He’s right. Still a great song.

I'm not gonna lie, a plate of Freida's enchiladas at the Parlor is one of life's great pleasures.  For me, better than Dart Bowl.  I realize I'm in the minority here.

They've expanded and doing very well. Early on they'd be surprised to see a guero pick up lengua tacos, now they just give me a nod.

This feels like a post-Covid (LOL) road trip is in order.  I've never heard of it.

I think that maudies, old school jorges and eym all run the Arredondo recipe but I may be off on that. Dart bowl is close but not ja recipe.

Decor-wise it is basically a shrine to John Wayne...I don't think the present political climate will change that. Looks like it was a saloon at one point way back when. I think everything in Bandera, including the churches, was a saloon at some point.

Maudie's are definitely not the same as EyM.  They might be working off the same general recipe, but the final product is not the same.  (I like Maudie's plenty but in this case I'll take EyM enchiladas every day.)

I might be mixing up the various relations but I am pretty sure those three (jorges, maudies and eym) all share genetics. Especially the first two.

Lake Travis has limited options but I’ll take the Josie’s Enchiladas at Maudies any day I’m not on a low carb bullshit diet.

The fuck is Cali-Mex?

I've always thought burritos and "tostadas".

The only thing I thought was truly memorable in CA was the burritos, which were terrific.  This was back way before the chain burrito places.

I also noticed that Calfiornians seemed to go wild for chalupas/tostadas at outdoor fairs/events.

The version of the story I heard from the Chili Parlor folks is that “mad dog margaritas” weren’t a drink on the menu until after Jerry Jeff wrote the song and people started asking for them.

Also their salsa is made with serranos and is legit.

Lived in California until I was 12. Hated Tex mex for About a year when I first moved because it was so different. Prefer Tex Mex now to California variety but love both

Maudies has the best cheese enchiladas. Fight me irl.

 

Yup.  The Enchiladas Josie.  That's Casita Jorges original recipe.  They bought it from Jorges.

The bomb.

The true test of good Tex-Mex is and always has been the hot sauce and chips (if you call it salsa you are not a Texan)  before you have the #2 dinner which consists of cheese enchiladas, crispy taco with a small guacamole salad, rice and refried beans.That is it. That's the list.

Not sure that I agree on the salsa/hot sauce thing.  I think that either is fine when referring to what is served with chips, but I would usually refer to that as salsa in a restaurant. 

If I am at a Tex Mex place in Austin, and I ask for some salsa, nine times out of ten I am going to get the stuff that you dip your chips in. But I wouldn't throw a fit about it if they brought out some Valentina. 

If I ask for hot sauce, nine times out of ten they are going to bring me some cholula or something.  A salsa picante.

You say this with such authority, that I want to believe you. Casita Jorge's was religion in my family growing up. Dad would play softball on Fridays at Pleasant Valley Sportsplex, and we'd go eat Jorge's after the early games and before the late games. I can still walk thru that place in my head, with the "smoking section" in the back, and the four-game arcade in front on your left as you entered. Even driving by the building these days kicks up the nostalgia dust into my eyes.
