Food and Music in Laredo



Laredo is definitely a border town and proud, but its cuisine isn’t quite like all the other cities that specialize in Tex-Mex. It’s a town where the menus offer local takes on old themes. For example, a Laredo staple is a breakfast taco called a mariachi, and oh is it spicy. Another Laredo innovation is the pancho, nachos covered with cheese, beef, and jalapenos. Or you may run across the machito, a goat-tripe sausage. If that last doesn’t sound so attractive, there’s plenty else on the menu, and plenty of restaurants with regular Tex-Mex offerings. Beef is the meat of choice in this Tex-Mex cuisine. But a jaunt across the border to sister city Nuevo Laredo means more seafood based dishes, especially that old delicious standard, the red snapper.


Laredo is another major center for tejano music, with healthy performances of conjunto and conjunto besides. The music genres have been known to mix with each other.
