This is an excellent Tex-Mex restaurant! The restaurant is tuck away off Avenue J (on the back side of Miller Rd. The atmosphere has the feeling of a good Mexican restaurant that goes well with the friendly Mexican staff and music. I highly recommend this place. I ordered the Chicken Tampico w/Corn & Zucchini. I also recommend the Tortilla Soup. However, be warned that their salsa is served *warm* instead of cold (from the free chips and salsa).
Arlington was founded in 1876, mainly as market town for the Pacific Railway system.
The reason it's nicknamed "Ag-Town" is because of the cities roots in the agricultural industry. Area farmers relied on hay, oats, corn, peanuts, as well as dairy cattle and livestock. Also, in its early days, Arlington had as many a five gins processing cotton.
In 1951, Arlington added the GM assembly plant was created (hint: it's where the Chevy/GM surburbans are made).
Aside from having agricultural and and industrial roots, Arlington is also a huge entertainment mecca in the D/FW Metroplex. There is The Ballpark, Six Flags over Texas, and the newly renovated Parks Mall (south side of town off of I-20 & Cooper).
Arlington also has a good university near its downtown area--UTA (Univ. of Texas at Arlington). It has a top notch Science/Engineering program, as well as a great Nursing program.
Can you tell I spent time there? :-)
