Sometimes you have to leave home to learn how great it is: after reaching Oz, Dorothy realized how much she loved Kansas, and was subsequently the last person to do so. For food from a guy who missed Mexico, check out Chilorio's.
Now officially open from a Mexican dude who attended Wharton, where he missed his homeland's food and decided to start an authentic taqueria, Chilorio's is a colorful counter-service nook that employs the hard-earned knowledge of a master chef from the Mexican Culinary Institute, and reps the motherland with never-fried tortillas made in-house, plus flavors from a complex medley of slow cooked chilis, and an array of beans, including some that're fat-free, although they're all good for your heart. The menu rocks house specialties like the Chilorio Burrito, with chicken that's simmered, shredded, mixed w/ a secret sauce from a broad range of both hot and mild chilis, and cooked again; Chilo Taco, a traditional soft corn tortilla w/ shredded beef and mashed fat-free black beans; and the Pirata, a traditional burrito with grilled marinated Angus topped w/ sliced avocado and shredded Jack, exactly what critics shortsightedly did to Robin Williams' masterpiece. You can also design your own burritos, tostadas, tacos, etc: choose your tortilla (wheat, corn, flour), bean (pinto, black, or fat-free of either), meat (shredded beef, shrimp, lobster, grilled chicken), sides like grilled onions or peppers, and 10 different iterations of house-made salsa, like pico, a mid-range Macho Molcajete (made by crushing secret stuff between two stones), and wicked hot Special Salsa, teaching you the lesson that heat is in the 'eye of the beholder.
Chilorio's also offers $4.44 margaritas, beer (also in michelada form, with salt & spices on the rim), and even has Mexican candies like dulce de leche variations, and and Pelones, which is like our push pops, but come out in thin, hair-like strands of sweet-n-sour tamarind -- the candy that makes bald men muse "If I only had a mane."
