My family will be in Aggieland over the summer and wanted to get some good Tex-Mex while in town. Any recommendations?

I like Casa Rod in downtown Bryan and Los Cucos in Bryan on Rudder frwy.

You will likely get as many different places as you get responses!

Second all of these in addition to Lupe Tortilla. We used to really like Casa Rod and Papa Perez, but our last couple of experiences at both were not great. Haven't given up on them yet, though.

So many good local options for TexMex in BCS. I forgot about Lacarreta which someone earlier mentioned.

Yoles down in Wellborn at the Chevron Station is our go to lately
Garpez is good as well
Still haven't made it to Jessie's yet only because of its location and the fact we are never in that general area

Casa Rod has been going downhill for awhile now. Used to love them but the last 5 times we have been there the food has been bad. Trying to find our new tex mex home now

YES!

Also -- life is too short to overpay for mediocre Tex-Mex a la Abuelo's or Lupe Tortilla.

I've been trying to work on my definitive guide to CS Tex/Mex and Mexican food.

Category one: You just want something good, aren't trying to have like a semi-nice meal and a margarita. 'B' for breakfast, 'L' for Lunch, D for dinner:

La Familia at Barron and 6 - B/L
Jesse's - B/L
La Carreta - B/L
Yole's - B/L (Yole's does have dinner Tues-Fri, but I've never been there for dinner, no idea what the vibe is like)
Raspas El Payasito - L/D (this is more Mexican than 'texmex', depending on who's working some basic Spanish might be necessary)
La Perla - B/L/D (Same as above regarding English and type of food, also has a meat market near the restaurant if you want to just pick up some fajitas and grill them at home. Best beef fajitas I think I've ever had in B/CS. I also haven't been to the actual restaurant at dinner, so it might have Margarita's I have no idea.)

Note: the above are all places I would consider above 'replacement level' Mexican food. There are a lot of other places that are fine, but if you switched the signs around or something there isn't anything particularly remarkable about them. (ex: Polly's, Coco Loco, Jose's)

Category two: more of a nicer sit down dinner/marg/classic TexMex style. These places are all fine, but I wouldn't consider any of them particularly special.

Lupe Tortilla
Casa Rod
Papa Perez
Chuy's

Abuelos doesn't make their tortillas. It's not real Mexican if they use store bought tortillas
