Valentina's Tex Mex is the creation of Miguel Vidal and Michael Lerner, two long-time friends determined to offer a unique, yet familiar twist on barbecue. Their meat is smoked on-site for 20 hours every day, and they have hand-rolled tortillas, fresh salsas, guacamole and hearty sides. For the main form of food you have your choice of Tex (sandwich) or Mex (taco).
Some of the items include: pulled chicken sandwich with house slaw, sea salt lime guacamole, and smoked chicken sauce; smoked brisket taco with sea salt lime guacamole and tomato serrano salsa; and smoked carnitas taco with caramelized onion, cilantro, and tomatillo habanero salsa.
Valentina's Tex Mex is located behind Starbar at the corner of Sixth and Nueces (a few blocks east of Lamar). Since Valentina's is at a bar, the event is NOT BYOB! Parking is free at meters after 6 PM.
