The first thing you see when you walk in is the tortilla station. This lady has the hookup – graffiti, tortillas, chips, salsa and drinks – all within arms reach. You order at the counter and then find a seat (if you can) – then head over to this little lady with your bowl & cup in hand to get your fresh chips, salsa and a drink!
There are a range of seats – from picnic tables outside to stoops inside. The stoops are BY FAR the least comfortable things in the joint. Its like I’m at a spin class that won’t end. Thankfully for us – two seats opened up at the bar!
We grabbed our chips and salsa – they have 4 different choices and with the $1.50 salsa bar you can have as much as you want.
Oh the drinks!!! They have sodas but you can also get more authentic drinks. They have horchata and I tried the hibiscus flower water and…
It was delicious! It’s like grape juice without the tang and tart. It’s just nice, sweet and fruity! I loved it – I definitely will get this every time I go back. I had a Hibiscus Lemonade at a restaurant in Chicago and this reminded me of it – yum! I’m not sure if you get free refills – I wanted more – but I didn’t want to seem greedy. So good.
So here are the chips & salsa – you get your bowl when you pay – then take it over and get some hot, fresh, crisp tortillas – sometimes blue – sometimes yellow – sometimes both! I liked the greenish salsa the best – it was a little spicy but not too much. Yum! I also could have devoured about 3 bowls of these but was trying to be good. 🙂
My friend Kelly and I got the same order of 3 mixed tacos ($9) – except she got grilled fish and I got fried. This is her grilled fish taco.
Now the shredded pork topped with avocado salsa & salsa rojo was our FAVORITE! I didn’t reallize but the menu online says you can sub out chicken or chorizo on this. Now I know my next order – one of each!!! This was delicious and I could have downed two orders of these! So good! I highly recommend 3 of the shredded pork!
