While I love a good sit-down Mexican restaurant, I probably wouldn't know authentic Mexican food either (I live in Ohio). Taco Bell doesn't even qualify as "food", much less "Mexican food". I'm not sure how authentic it is, but we have a Mexican restaurant that serves everything from scratch, from the tortillas to the pico de gallo, and it is so good! I love fresh food, and am not a fan of heavy foods, and this restaurant only serves the heavier stuff if you ask for it specifically. Otherwise, everything is fresh veggies, and such.
