    " I saw Gustavo Arellano speak at the Upland, California public library a few weeks ago, and was so enchanted that I put his book to the top of my list. Mexican food has indeed conquered America, and Arellano has conquered writing about it in this witty, information packed book. Almost everything you never even knew you wanted to know about all things Mexican food - from tortillas to Pace Picante Sauce ("get a rope") to Fritos Doritos Cheetos and Tostitos. The purist might argue that last point, that Fritos and their kin can be considered some sort of Mexican food. But Arellano makes a really convincing argument that when Mexican food invaded the United States, it evolved and changed - but at its core still remains Mexican food. A delicious book about a delicious subject. "

    " Very interesting history of Mexican food. Particularly interesting for me as my fathers roots are in San Bernardino and new Mexico and have eaten at the still operating Mitla Cafe. But to me, Mexican food is comfort food, even watered down margaritas or too saucy enchiladas. I still crave it often! "

    " If you enjoy Mexican food as much as I do, it's definitely worth a read! "

    " Another book that really reads like a series of magazine articles instead of a single coherent narrative. This one holds up better than Banana because Gustavo Arellano is an engaging writer and structures the book so that each chapter explores a single, coherent idea. Early chapters provide a glimpse into a world where grizzled 1890s street vendors were ready to knife each other to protect their tamale patches but don't explore it in any depth. Later chapters about the history of Taco Bell and the invention of the frozen margarita that make the book worth reading anyway. "
