Latitude 26°

The name is a reference to where Texas and Mexico literally meet, but St. Louisans will appreciate a local geographical reference: The restaurant occupies the address vacated by Chuy Arzola's (which itself reopened in the Coronado building). The renovation is thorough and has turned a cramped, dingy space into an airy one, thanks in large part to the floor-to-ceiling windows that front the restaurant. Owners Tony and Kelli Almond, who also operate Almond's in Clayton, have put together a concise menu that hews to standard Tex-Mex dishes: tacos, enchiladas, burritos and more. The beef brisket is tender and flavorful - a welcome alternative to the usual Tex-Mex meats.
