Tex-mex or Caribbean - upscale or casual dining

So my out of town guests want to try Tex-Mex or Caribbean TONIGHT!
Can you recommend a good upscale or casual dining Tex-Mex or Caribbean place? We are good with Etobicoke, Mississauga and Toronto. North York and Scarb are too far.
Oh dear. Tex Mex in Toronto? I think maybe Hernando's Hideaway or Lone Star Texas Grill are the only places that fit that description.
Ick, but if that's what your guests want... :)
I'm not so sure about dine-in Caribbean, as most of the places I go to are carry out. I'd say Island Foods might be your best bet.
This is probably a little late, but I've always liked my meals at Irie on Queen W. Casual atmosphere, somewhat funky.
Not your standard Caribbean, since they have a few fusiony dishes, but the food has always been tasty when I've dined there. Now that I think about it, it's about time for me to visit again;)

We ended up going to Rancho Relaxo. The drinks and food were ok but the service sucked. The waitress got my order wrong twice.
I won't be going back. I was not expecting it to be excellent but would have settled for good, but the food was not good, it was ok.
I may go back for the music and drinks and apps but the not the main courses.
