Tex Mex Joe's

Perfect For:Cheap EatsLunch

Tex Mex Joe’s on North Lamar has a great tree-lined deck out back, a full bar including frozen margaritas, and an enormous menu of all the Tex-Mex hits and combo plates imaginable. We often come for brunch here because of the breakfast plates like chilaquiles and the huevos rancheros. We also like the infinitely customizable breakfast tacos with a wide variety of ingredients, all served on homemade corn, flour, or spinach tortillas (corn tortillas with spinach mixed in so they’re bright green). But when we’re feeling particularly indecisive—especially after a late night out—we’ve come to rely on the “Tacos Locos” menu with more creative combinations for breakfast tacos that we probably would have never come up with on our own, like one with carne guisada, scrambled eggs, and cheddar cheese.
