It is a beautiful Sunday afternoon and you must feed your family of 8 with authentic, home-cooked and satiating food. The menu must be diverse to please everyone, toddlers and sophisticated palates of 20 somethings alike. Your budget? $20. You have only one answer: an authentic and consistently satisfying Tex-Mex, erring on the side of Mex, eatery tucked away on airline drive.
Okay, perhaps this is an exaggeration but you get my point. Tex Mex, not a difficult cuisine to master at home, is all about pleasing a diverse group with consistently good, traditional and inexpensive dishes. Teotihuacan shines in each of these areas.
Particulary alluring are the breakfast plates. Choices range from porkchops to chilaquiles and are served with sides of a tamales and unlimited corn tortillas guaranteed to be straight off the comal, all for unerring $7.
Weekday dinner specials are just as inviting, particularly during happy hour when even a premium tequila margarita can be enjoyed for a just few dollars..
While neither the food, prices or ambiance are *particularly* special, somehow they come together to create a restaurant that is quick to become anyone's favorite Tex-Mex joint. Chips fresh, salsas flavorful, servers joyful, servings plentiful, you just kinda have to love this place. You even love it on an early Sunday afternoon when it is wall-to-wall packed with families lapping up Mexican plates like cattle, young wild ""calves"" running and screaming freely about the patio. The superb food draws in a crowd as diverse and colorful as the culture that inspires the cuisine; neither language nor affluence can divide the crowd that comes together in their love of great Texmex . Hands down Teotihuacan is the best value for money that you'll be able to find in the city.
