Any day that allows me to cram Mexican food down my face all day is a great day. Using a food-based judging criterium I rank Cinco de Mayo as my favorite holiday tied with Thanksgiving.

Even thinking of Mexican restaurants in the Carolina's gives me the trots.

Most Mexican restaurants in the Carolinas are really Southwestern American food restaurants. Or they take normal American meals, add some cilantro and mole and call it by its Spanish name.

If you want a real Mexican restaurant, you have to go to the ones where the waitstaff doesn't speak English.

Go where the Mexicans actually eat.

 

The taco truck on HWY 21.

Exactly, you must come here to California.

California got some good mexican food, not so much in Nevada or Arizona.  When visiting family in North Carolina, I never tried any Mexican food.

 

I can't speak for any other state,  but I would wager my left one that California would be in top 3 for sure.

no self-respecting mexican joint in the carolinas is going to use cheddar cheese in their "authentic" dishes

 

cheddar cheese was invented by the freaking english.  if it's got cheddar cheese in it it's americanized mexican and i always see burritos and tacos double fisted with the poo whenever west coasters try to post pictures bragging on their "superior, authentic" mexican food.

one of the only good things about hickory is the fact that there's a place like that every ten feet in that town
