Where they are: Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, and Oklahoma
Why you need them: We hesitate to give Texas too much credit, but it's impossible to deny that Tex-Mex food -- with all its cheese-soaked, chili-lovin' awesomeness -- is amazing. Taco Bueno has your requisite tacos, burritos, nachos, and quesadillas, but the real move is to go with the Bueno Chilada Platter, which gets you queso and chili sauce poured over two ground beef Chiladas (a soft taco-burrito hybrid), plus rice, beans, and fresh guac. See, everything really is bigger. And because of stuff like this, everyone is too.
