Los Pinos provides a balance of Tex-Mex and Interior Mexican cuisines. Be sure to try the fish borracho: tilapia swimming in chipotle-cream sauce, corn, and mushrooms. The tortillas and aguas frescas are made fresh daily.

The Chile Con Queso Especial is a thing to be reckoned with

Size doesn't always make up for quality

Abuelo's Mexican Food Embassy

Try this Lubbock-based chain for both traditional Tex-Mex and adventurous Interior Mexican offerings.

Hecho en México

The menu boasts appealing items clearly influenced by Central Mexico, the specialty cocktail selections include signature margaritas (including one made with tepache, a fermented pineapple drink that's popular in Jalisco), and the sauces here were all extraordinary, but the precooked meats and chaotic service disappointed.

Las Palomas

This restaurant, opened for business for over 30 years, is still serving up delicious Interior Mexican in a lovely setting. The empanadas, frijoles a la charra, beef tenderloin, and anything with the mole sauce is not to be missed. Also check out the extensive gluten-free menu.
