To Give Your Kids a Taste of the Lone Star State: Javelina Tex Mex

For ex-pat Texans, it’s not so easy finding an authentic spot to dine on everything from steak fajitas to queso. But Javelina Tex Mex fills the void. Best of all, the owner loves kids ands stresses that menu items like quesadillas and chicken tacos can easily be adjusted for spice. High chairs and strollers won’t cause a stir in this laid-back spot either, and the chips and salsa are in high demand among the youngsters who come here with mom and dad.
