The Bunk boys' Tex-Mex spot has rolled out several new cocktails like the Cowboy Coffee w/ fernet and the Texas Tea w/ sweet tea & bourbon, both of which you skip to order this off-menu, Thrillist-reader-exclusive Avocado Marg. An Ecto Cooler-colored mix of muddled 'cado, cilantro, and tequila blanca, it'll leave you as toasted as Mr. Stay Puft.
We all know the warning: Don't mess with Texas. Well the dudes behind Trigger not-so-politely ignored that warning and opened up one of hell a Tex-Mex restaurant...in Oregon. Now that's ballsy. In a wood-paneled space that's got cattle skulls everywhere, they're serving up their own spins on Tex-Mex classics, like smoked brisket, beer-can chicken, and a hazelnut mole quesadilla. Get the Lone Star State food you want without, you know, having to actually go to the Lone Star State.
