Favorite Mexican: Carnitas or Carne Asada. Perfect Carnitas almost crispy outside and fall apart tender inside. Carne Asada seasoned and cooked over an open fire.

Favorite Tex-Mex: Carne Guisada

Fish tacos!
burritos made with small chunks of slow cooked beef in a savory enchilada sauce!
Chili rellenos stuffed with cheese and ground beef!

Now I'm hungry....

I'm a sucker for a good cheese enchilada, verde or red. With a side of rice and beans. With a splotch of sour cream on top of all three ;) And a good margarita...chips and lots of mild chunky salsa. That's a perfect mexican dinner for me.

I have only eaten Tex Mex once, not sure what I had, I think it was a ground beef steak of some sort, with sauce on top. I wasn't impressed.

Without a doubt, my favorite is chili rellanos (with the seeds removed!)

But for a snack, I can eat my weight in shredded beef and cheese taquitos.

Good luck to your aunt and her restobar.

Fajitas Texanas. Yum!
We've moved the show to DailyMotion.com!

UPdate to add a definition found on the web:

It is a meaningless term, like "appie" for appetizer, coined to attempt to make a restaurant with a bar sound like something new and cutting edge.

Fear any restobar, because if they need a new word, their food is probably third rate.

Okayyyyy then.

A restobar is a restaurant not only that has good food but also good drinks...its a popular term in the Philippines in which a place not only serves full course meals but can also be a place that serves alcohol and where you can hear good live music
