Quick dip of queso

It’s a Tex-Mex tradition, and every respectable taco shop and Mexican eatery has its own spin on it. Some may say it’s just cheese dip, but it’s so much more. We’ve assembled a team of culinary experts to find out which quesos around town stand up to the test. 

Mr. Mesero

At first I was skeptical. White queso? This is heresy. Artichoke and spinach in the queso? No thanks.

But when I tasted the creamy dip, I changed my mind. It’s simple and elegant. The consistency is thicker than typical queso but then again why am I even comparing this to typical queso? If you’re looking for a change of pace for your favorite cheesy treat, Mr. Mesero’s signature queso dish is a solid option.



People have described it as one of the most addictive substances on the planet. Laced with Diablo sauce and guacamole, Torchy’s queso is a stew of cheese and goodies that truly is “damn good.”

The only thing holding me back is the fact that not all batches are created equal. Occasionally they’ll overdose on the Diablo sauce, or they won’t have enough guac, but even with these imperfections, the queso ranks among the all-time greats.
