JenGirl:  +1, this. I honestly think a lot if psychological, or the need to be that person. You know, the one who says, “Oh, you haven’t had real Mexican until you’ve had it at XYZ!”

I think there are more restaurants that cook with lard in certain parts of the country than in others. Refried beans cooked with lard instead of oil taste a lot better. So does meat.

Horseradish:  And bacon grease.

As a midwestener who lived in South Texas for 12 years–I miss the food A LOT.  Even their chains are good.  Fuck, I could really go for some Pappasito’s right now.

I had Mexican food in Louisiana and it sucked. They used American cheese in and on the enchiladas…your supposed to use Mexican cheeses. I’m Hispanic and live in a Hispanic region of Deep South texas…10 mins from the Mexican border. So my expectations are very high.

JenGirl:  Atmosphere really does make a difference in the dining experience. Definitely. I once sat overlooking the coast in Mykonos eating feta and olives (lol).  It also helps that the feta and olives were actually really awesome.

However, I can assure you, the atmosphere only enhances how you feel while you eat or drink whatever it is.  A great bottle of wine purchased from a vineyard in the Alsace region of France tastes just as good in my living room as it does overlooking the French country side.  

I’ve also had really terrible “Italian” right outside the Vatican, but that’s the fault of the tourist industry. lol
