For authentic Tex-Mex, Las Brazas Pollos Asados (pollos asados meaning ‘roasted chickens’) is one of the highest-rated Mexican restaurants in the Bell County area. It offers a menu typical of traditional Tex-Mex restaurants and for a very good price. For breakfast, Las Brazas’ menu offers traditional breakfast tacos and burritos with typical filling choices. Also served are omelets with bacon or chorizo, pico de gallo and mixed cheese and either rice and beans or pancakes. At Las Brazas, you can dine on Mexican favorites such as pork tamales, shrimp ahogados (shrimp with cabbage, broccoli, jalapeños and potatoes in a spicy sauce) chiles rellenos or chips and salsa. You can also choose a ‘smothered’ burrito, which is stuffed with grilled steak and covered in a Texas meat sauce with melted Monterrey cheese. And, for an authentic Mexican feel, one can order with his meal a house-made horchata or a drink imported from Mexico.
