On any given day, if you were to ask a member of Minteer Real Estate Team where to eat, 99% of the time, each of us would answer Mexican or Tex-Mex. It’s easily all of our favorite type of food. It’s food we know, we love and, are honestly, a little picky about. So here are our top 10 Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants in Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake in alphabetical order (mostly because we couldn’t all agree on a ranking). Prepare to be hungry.
