Chito's: Dallas: Plano
|Someone else's fajita plate, just for you viewing pleasure|
Needing to fill up on Tex-Mex before heading back to Boston, some friends and I headed to Chito's for lunch. At all Tex-Mex places, in case you don't know, you get complimentary chips and salsa, and you can always judge the forthcoming food by how good their salsa is.
|Tortilla Soup - $3.50 for a cup (as above) or $6 for a bowl|
I was hoping that there'd be cheese and more cilantro in the soup, but it was still pretty great, and I liked the big chunks of potato with skin on, the squash pieces, the carrots, the plentiful chicken, generous avocado slices and the crispy fresh fries tortilla strips.
They had a $1 taco special, and I wanted a lighter lunch, so I just got two tacos with my soup (and way too much chips and salsa).

I was surprised my tacos were as small as they were and only had one corn tortilla each, but they were just a dollar and were great. If you can manage to eat less of the chips and salsa than I can, or you don't get the soup, then go ahead and order all four (they also have steak and chicken).
