GUAD Texas Chef-Mex

This large, crowded, noisy Tex-Mex spot has the veneer of a cantina, but the predominantly Anglo patrons who dine here mainly care about the chips, salsa and Margaritas. The fajita nachos with queso are always a crowd-pleaser, while the roasted cream of poblano soup, with a distinct smoky flavor, is for the more discerning palate. You can't go wrong with tacos al carbon or fajitas here, and the enchiladas are always sure to satisfy.
