It is a blending of Texan and Mexican cuisine, which began sometime in the early 1900's. At the heart of it is the fajita. Mexican cowboys or vaqueros-who were paid partially with beef-created this staple. They grilled the meat, wrapped it in a tortilla with whatever fixings they liked and the fajita was born. Tex Mex at it's finest!!!
Over the years this cuisine has continued to develop and we have provided our own interpretation along the way. Sometimes our accent is south of the border, and other times further north. Tex Mex Cuisine: Characterized by the adaptation of Mexican food by Texan cooks. Often exemplified by the extensive use of meats and spices (foreign and native) resulting in creative seafood dishes, great steaks, tender ribs, and juicy pork as well as our interpretation of standards like chile con queso, nachos and fajitas. Not Mexican, not Texan, just Tex-Mex.
