While I love love love La Mexicana – it’s a bit too authentic for my better half. Actually I haven’t taken him – but I know him pretty well and the goat on the menu – well it might scare him away.
So when I want Mexican – we head to Rio Grande in Newport – it’s near the Remke and all the other stuff right off 471.
I don’t even need a menu – I always get the same thing. I get the Fajita Taco Salad…it’s like a big ass taco. Seriously – click the picture – it’s giant! Yeah yeah yeah – all that cheese and sour cream is bad for me – I know – but once every couple months – I NEED IT! The shell is crispy and delicious as well. I don’t know why but the taco shell shape is so much better than the bowl shape. No real explanation – it just is!
I went for Fajita Chicken – typically I’m a steak girl but just felt like chicken this day. It did not disappoint. And yeah – it’s too much food – but I ate it all. This is a meal for a no-breakfast day.
Larry got the same thing but with ground beef – he loved it. And the food came out in about 5 minutes – and since it’s a lunch special – we got out of there with 2 sodas for like $15 or something ridiculous like that.
Why Should You Go: Duh – cuz it’s awesome.
