Downtown lunch on Tuesdays typically means one of two things - Paula's for the Chicken & Wild Rice soup or TACO TUESDAY at Margarita's on 4th!
First, of course, you get a big bowl of chips & salsa. The salsa is pretty darned good - light, tomatoey and lots of cilantro. The chips could be saltier but I like them.
You can ask for a small side of white queso dip and it's only 99 cents - yumtastic! It's my favorite. Back home there was a Mexican restaurant that had the white queso on top of refried beans - it was soooo good. Anybody know a place that has that?
For Taco Tuesday you can get your choice of hard or soft shell with shredded chicken or ground beef for like $1.10 each. The chicken is fairly light and juicy. I'm always a fan of hard shelled tacos and these are good. There's a nice amount of cheese on them as well. They're a little greasy but i like 'em.
The ground beef is actually my favorite - I think it's very flavorful! These aren't fancy - but you know at $1.10 each - they rock!
They also have a new lunch special - doesn't look too bad!
While Margs isn't the best Mexican in the city - it's the only cheap Mexican downtown and I like it. It's a little greasy, the service can be slow, it's not unique at all - but you know what - it's good!
