The Whole Enchilada : ¡Ask a Mexican! columnist Gustavo Arellano talks taco shop with a restaurant criticnew

In 2006, the Weekly Alibi became the only newspaper with the cojones to take a chance on a newly syndicated column called ¡Ask a Mexican! Six years later, the racy Q & A runs weekly in 39 newspapers around the country. Gustavo Arellano has snuck into our hearts like a border-crosser in the trunk of an Impala. To get the skinny—if there is such a thing—on Mexican food in the U.S., Alibi restaurant critic Ari LeVaux broke tortillas with Arellano about his new book, Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America.
