“Not really Mexican, but still kind of tasty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Last weekend I went out on the town and drove by on my way home. I was really hungry so decided to stop. It is not really fast food, but a sit-down place with a simple decor. There is a menu board and a hand written list of items on a whiteboard. Because it was late and the place would be closing soon, I ordered 2 chicken tacos to go.

My expectations were low, because I am originally from California and really love authentic Mexican food. When I got home and open the box I was pleasantly surprised. There were two generous looking tacos wrapped in paper. They used fried flour tortillas, which is not really Mexican, but this is PR and everything is fried. The tacos tasted very good, but the seasoning was strictly Puerto Rican. The fact that they serve mofongo should have been a tip-off.

It is hard to judge a restaurant based on just one meal, but this was pretty good for the price. Judging from the flavor profile of the tacos, don't go if you are craving authentic Mexican cuisine. I suppose if you wanted authentic Mexican food you would vacation in Mexico, or at least the southwestern US. However, if you want low priced "Mexican food" with a PR vibe, this is a reasonable choice. It was better than going to Taco Bell, or the local fast food chain Taco Maker.
