I am saying don't go there because it is only good when, it is after midnight, you have been drinking and you are almost broke.

Does food ever taste better than in the situation you just described though?

I say no. Best tortilla I've ever eaten was at 2:00 in the morning. It was a corn tortilla wrapped in a corn husk cooked above a 55 gallon drum on the streets of Tegucigalpa Honduras. My Honduran friend warned me about eating local but I was flying out at 5:00 so I told him if I got the shitts it would be on the plane to Houston.

Damn thing was DELICIOUS. Or at least that's my memories of it and they may have been blurred by the copious amounts of tequila we'd consumed that night. I never even got a cramp out of it.

Good times.

Chicos is not cheap. A double with fries and a drink is almost 10 bucks.

Exactly. Now would these tacos be so famous if they weren't good?

Exactly! Flautas dressed in enchilada clothing as a disguise.

I want to preface this with I'm a believer in trying anything and everything recommended to you when traveling to a place you've never been to before, these are only my opinions.

My wife's entire family is from El Paso and I've had to suffer through many Chico's Tacos meals. I'm not a fan, but I will say this much. Living in S.A. my entire life, El Paso has us beat with two items hands down: Tamales and Chile Rellenos.

I've had tamales there as big as your fist that were the moistest, most flavorful tamales I've ever eaten. They also make the Chile Rellenos right, with a fluffy outside and awesome red or green sauce (or no sauce at all, which is how I like them). I highly recommend eating them while you're there.

BTW, Fluffy in the video above got it right. If you do decide on Chico's Tacos, don't eat them before the game.

RE: Question for UTEP people.
Good point Migser31. I completely forgot about tamales. Growing up in the east side of El Paso I can recommend my favorite Sunday morning place for menudo and tamales. Try La Choza on Zaragoza. I use to eat an entire dozen of rajas con queso by myself.

One of my favorite tacos restaurants in San Antonio is Taquitos West Ave. Probably some of the tastiest tacos I've had my entire life.
