Tasty Tuesdays: Best Interior Mexican

Google “Austin Interior Mexican” and you won’t have to scroll far down to find Fonda San Miguel. Before Fonda opened in 1975, Austin was a decidedly Tex-Mex town.
What’s the difference? That’s up to your own personal interpretation but I think of Tex-Mex as dishes like chips and salsa, queso, fajitas, and the combination plate.
Interior or Regional Mexican is more traditional cuisine that is served and enjoyed throughout the six regions of the country. According to Wikipedia, some of the specialties of each region include:
