Check out the one dish you have to try from this Mexican restaurant that is mere yards away from Maryland Heights. Warning: your mouth will water when reading this.
Ever try Tejana Taqueria? If you haven't, the Riverfront Times is telling you to go there right now.

(If you want to spike it, there are dried chiles among the garnishments, and squeeze bottles of the restaurant's red and green salsas are also available.) The flavor is rich and unmistakably goaty. Even a spoonful of …
