Mia's Tex-Mex

In 1981, Tiburcia "Butch" Enriquez opened the doors to a restaurant that would become as synonymous with Tex-Mex as chile con queso. Dishes are dedicated to family members, chief among them Butch and his Original Brisket Tacos (two brisket tacos filled with Monterey Jack, grilled onions and poblano peppers served with brisket gravy, rice and beans in your choice of tortillas). But everything is dedicated to Mia's customers, from the service informed by familiarity to the kids' menu, "Sophia's Friends." Restaurant guests are family, and the family dines most often on the chiles rellenos. This is especially so on Tuesday nights, when the homemade signature dish is served with rice and beans for only $9.95 and reservations are recommended. The family table is only so big.
