Interesting article on the many Mexican Restaurants around the Los Angeles Area

I've been to great deal of them, mostly local due to convenience. But there are a few that I traveled to to have to have that special something.
 
Many aren't listed but this is a great beginning to a life of tacos!

Those are some great looking places, I'm ready for an extended crawl. I wish they would have included some photos of the food.

Can you not find reasonable approximations at tacobell.com?

Every picture of Wisconsin Mexican food was just solid orange.
Something about the cheese 🧀,
I surmise.

These are SoCal Mexican restaurants, Del Taco is more authentic.

Seriously, Mar, this list is just amazing.  There are so MANY of them, and some have been around SO LONG!!!   
 
The oldest Mexican resto in the Houston area is The Original Mexican Cafe in Galveston, which opened in 1908.  The oldest in Houston is Molina's, opened in 1941 and still run by descendants of the family (3 locations).  After that, the list skips up to 1953.
