    Tex-Mex Food – An American and Mexican Cuisine With History and Tradition

    If you look up Tex-Mex food in the dictionary, you will find many different definitions.

    I think if you were to ask people, you would find that many of us have favorite restaurants, and favorite meals that we enjoy eating in restaurants. Whether it’s fried chicken, burgers, stuffed mushrooms, pizza, seafood or perhaps a particular dessert, you probably have your own favorites too.

    Work in a Small, Non-Chain Restaurant to Get a Better Idea of the Realities of Owning a Restaurant

    Now that you’ve decided to open or operate a restaurant, you need to get a good idea of what it takes to operate a successful establishment. Contrary to what some people may think, the best learning opportunities may not come from someplace that is a part of a large national chain. One of the disadvantages in working for a chain store is that almost all of the foodstuffs used in day to day operations are ordered and come from corporate sources, rather than taking advantage of local vendors. Another disadvantage is that you can’t get a realistic idea of what costs are incurred for such things as utilities and insurances.…
