  1. I'd say El Girasol--maybe by CA or TX standards it's not thrilling, but it's a welcome change from the usual here in C-ville (our ethnic food scene is somewhat lacking). We've tried and loved the chile verde, birria de chivo (goat in red chile sauce), carnitas, and the beef cheeks special. It's on Preston across from the Preston Plaza shopping center.
