    I have to admit that I am a big fan of Robb Walsh. I own all of his cookbooks and have read most of his reviews and articles for the Houston Press. This is a very entertaining book, great recipes and plenty of arcane history. Just get it.

    I’m a Robb Walsh fan from the Houston Press restaurant reviews – and this is my 3rd Robb Walsh book purchase through Amazon. I enjoy his writing style and his tastes apparently. I also like to grill and all these recipes are within my skillset. You know what I mean – you buy Julia Childs and you go “there ain’t no #$%^ing way I can cook that”. These recipes bring a fresh approach to your backyard grilling. Whether you are cooking a steak for you and the Mrs. or a tailgate for the masses at Reliant Stadium – this is going to help. If you never cook a thing – you will still enjoy the stories and the writing.

    Like all of Walsh’s titles, The Tex-Mex Grill can be read as a history and cultural lesson just as easily as it can be read for its recipes. It’s filled with both vintage and current photographs, and plenty of instructions, tips and sources for perfect preparation. Most important, The Tex-Mex Grill is Walsh’s typical good blend of the common and the not-so-common (but not too haughty), and the drinks to go with it all. This cookbook also seems to be geared more toward the “healthier” side of Tex-Mex…more fish and veggies for the grill. Really looking forward to trying it all.
