    Living close to the border, I have access to all sorts of authentic Mexican food. The little family-run places are the best.

    The town I live in is about 52% mexican, and is the second most populous city in IL next to chicago, so we've got some great authentic stands and restaurants here.

    Lots of Mexican food restaurants in Denver. Though, from what I understand, none of it is authentic. They are way better than any Del Taco I've ever been to.

    Best Mexican Ive had was at Fonda San Miguel in Austin.
    Next best was the homemead buffet on San Francisco Beach in Cozumel, Mexico. So much fresh seafood.
    I have a thing for Yucatecan food.

    Real Mexican food is a hard find in New England. I've had it though, in New Mexico. Darn tasty! And no, it does not have to be all this fried nonsense,
    or even that spicy to be tasty.

    I'm impressed, Beanz. That's labor-intensive work.

    So, there's 4 mexicans in the kitchen of the "chinese" restaraunt down the street.
    Real Mexicans. Does that qualify as Mexican Food?
    They do a pretty good Mongolian Beef.

    ......I was brought up spreading tamales. 10-12 dozen at a time (Christmas tradition). I hated it but when I met Gina 26 years ago , she offered to help us make tamales. She has a technique we never thought of. She used the bowl and masa like a ramp to spread the husks. She cut our spread time in half! So my Mom made me keep her!

    Yes, I spread tamales at Christmas too. Takes about 1 1/2-2 days to make 12 dozen.

    My daughter, Gina and I all help but the rest of the vultures just show up when it's time to eat.

    Hahaha!

    There is a Chinese place about a mile from us. All the cooks are Mexican dudes. "Tasty Chinese" is the name of the place, don't go there! The chow mein was pretty much fideo and the kung pao was chile colorado. Eegads I still have nightmares about that place.

    Bensi is the best Mexican made Italian in NJ.

    When in Toronto, give Pachuco on the Danforth a try!

    I know of quite a few in VT, especially around Burlington. Either you aren't looking hard enough, or there is a business opportunity in Boston.

    If you have flatulence a couple hours after your meal and it's running down your leg -- you know you've had some good Mexican food.

    I haven't found an outstanding Mexican restaurant in Burlington but the town does have other excellent restaurants.

    The latino deli women I worked with at the Harvest Co-op in Central Sq Cambridge made me horchata one morning. Delicious. However, far as I know, horchata isn't Mexico-specific, and otherwise, there's a dearth of good Mexican food in New England. Loco Coco in Kittery ME is supposed to be best in the Seacoast (ME/NH) area...
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    Having moved to CO from SoCal, I can only agree. As my Dad says, with the huge indigenous Mexican population and better food quality, it's actually better than the food in Mexico.

    I got lucky: All the Mexican restaurants here are transplants from SoCal. I'm not as much a fan of the SouthWestern and Tex-Mex you get in this region. Give me SoCal style or keep it.

    not sure i can ever leave southern california/san diego. not sure what i would eat were it not for mexican food. now if i could just find a good chinese place in san diego...it's been a fruitless 25 year search and all 6 of my old chinese haunts in la are gone. i hear good things about the monterey park area of la for chinese food. gotta plan a weekend chinese food/riding angeles natl forest bender. not sure those two things are wholly compatible...

    Chinese food in Monterey Park starts with Capitol Seafood Dim Sum. There used to be a place on Valley Blvd called Wonder Seafood that specialized in Cobra Soup.
