My husband spotted Texas City at 10 Rue Dalpozzo while we were strolling around Nice. I couldn't believe it when I saw the sign outside! I was so excited and couldn't wait to have Mexican food after having been in France for a couple of months. It was HEAVEN! The closest we came to Mexican was eating at Cuban restaurants in Paris and Avignon. Not quite the same!
I loved the food at Texas City so much that we went back the next day for lunch, as well. It's just a pity that we didn't discover this "little bit of Texas" earlier in our two-week stay!
"This establishment was the first Tex-Mex restaurant in France and opened in 1978. Situated in Nice just steps away from the prestigious Promenade des Anglais, just behind the Mediterranean Palace, the Texas City restaurant is owned by Franco American Texan Frank Alan Charat. The authentic Rio Bravo style décor is the setting for a menu full of traditional Tex-Mex specialities such as chicken enchiladas, tacos and burritos as well as tasty desserts like chocolate brownies. Prices are more than reasonable. If you really love the Wild West then the line dancing events twice a month are just the ticket."
The restaurant is just a few blocks north of La Promenade des Anglais.
