The menu isn’t large and there is no seating – so all food is to-go. They have tacos – steak & pork (but were adding chicken – so it should be there now), rotisserie chicken, sides and also masa and tortillas for sale.
The tamales were only like $1.99 each so I got one of each – there’s a spicy beef and a shredded chicken. My other coworker said – “don’t eat the husk!” – which is one of the reasons I’d never tried one – I wasn’t exactly sure how to eat them.
I unwrapped the tamales and saw the masa overflowing with filling. Unfortunately I didn’t love them. The beef was too spicy for me. The chicken was better but had a little too much of the masa around it. I was with my friend Rachel and she agreed and also thought they were a bit dry.
I ordered the taco combo with one beef and one pork and a side of rice and beans. I also got a Mexican Coke – yum! I grew up in a little town in Iowa that had a large hispanic population – so I grew up knowing good Mexican food. I have to say – the beans were spot on. They reminded me of home and going to our neighbor’s house. I didn’t like the rice and tacos as much though.
They serve the tacos either Mexican (cilantro/onions) or American (lettuce, tomato, cheese) style. I got them American style cuz I like cheese. Unfortunately, the tacos were really dry. 🙁 The salsas were good though – especially the green one!
Why Should You Go? While I didn’t love everything – I want to try them again – maybe earlier in the day and see if that makes a difference. I’ll definitely buy some tortillas when I go back.
