We had been watching this opening for a while, a Mexican place not too far from our house? It sounded like an instant winner! So after their grand opening, I waited a few months until the crowds died down to check it out.
We went during the weekday lunch rush, so there was quite a crowd. I decided I’d get the enchilada and taco combo, with a side of chips and salsa. The pricing was great; a meal for two for around $20 was a steal. The actual food though left little to be desired. I may have picked the wrong meat choice; I went with their sweet pork barbacoa for both my enchilada and taco. The sweetness was overpowering! I tried to mask some of the flavor by dousing it in habanera sauce, but it was still too sweet for my taste. The chips and salsa were pretty delicious, I devoured every last crumb. I’m not sure if I’d go back, I may if I’m in the mood for Mexican and don’t feel like venturing to District Taco.
One of the draws of this place though is their drink bar. There are a variety of drink choices and you can mix and match lemonades, syrups and flavors to custom make a drink. That was pretty cool! I felt like a kid in a candy store trying to decide what concoction I’d make!
