Restaurants can be broken down into not only different restaurant types but also food types as well. Some examples of these may be – Asian, bakeries, barbecue, coffeehouses, desserts, family style, Italian or pizza, Mexican, sandwiches or seafood.
This page deals specifically with Mexican food which is so much a part of who we are as a country. I think overall the restaurants also do a good job of catering to kids and families. Three ethnic food types dominate our food culture, Italian, Asian (Chinese) and Mexican. There are no shortages of local and chain restaurants. Some examples of chain restaurants are Chuy’s, On The Border and Boca Grande Taqueria. If your town is large enough you may have your choice of both a local establishment as well as a national chain to choose from.
