After enjoying one too many cocktails at The Bungalow, I was craving some sober-me-up fare. As Mexican is my go-to comfort cuisine, I headed to the closest "hole in the wall" spot that I could find. With the positive reviews I had read on Yelp and Menupages (What? I haven't found my favorite local blog, yet!), I figured that I was in good hands...
Service aside - because everyone who was working there last night was lovely - I was pretty disappointed with my meal. Granted, the hard-taco shell was homemade, but the beef that it enveloped was cubed; not shredded, like the employee who took my order had promised. The red sauce on my cheese enchiladas tasted like ketchup, and the jamoncillo was dry, as was the cinnamon/sugar cookie. Sigh, at least the Mexican Coke was satisfying.
Do you have any favorite fast-casual Mexican go-to's? I'm in dire need!
