Mom and Pop Tex-Mex is a book about the way Tex-Mex cooking used to be before it was "glamoured" up and "improved" by those who felt they could do it better. Included are traditional recipes actually used in popular cafes and restaurants in San Antonio and the South Texas region. If you want to know the way to do it in your own restaurant, this book will give you straightforward advice from someone who has been there and done it for years. If you want to do it at home, you can use the same recipes and feel confident that you are serving the same food you would have found in the 1950's and 1960's in San Antonio's "Mexican" Restaurants. This book is unique in featuring only proven commercial recipes from the traditional San Antonio café style of Tex-Mex cooking.
