Brothers Mario and Ivan Urtecha came to the United States more than 20 years ago, and they worked in almost every restaurant industry job — busing tables, serving, even selling empanadas door to door — before finally getting the chance to open their own place, La Comida, near Addison. The food here is as good as Tex-Mex gets, with made-from-scratch salsas and unusual care given to ingredients on which other restaurants cheap out. There’s no better way to get to know La Comida than to try one of the generous combo plates, like the one with a superb chile con carne enchilada and a brisket taco, which you can dunk in smoky house barbecue sauce.

Fun fact: The menu goes well beyond Tex-Mex staples. There’s osso bucco, mole, cochinita pibil and a ribeye, too.
