How I heard of this place: Through the Entertainment book.
Type of cuisine: Mexican
Ambiance: Large interior with a lot of booth seating. The interior is clean with a stereotypical 1970s “Mexican” decor. Lively colors and “Mexican” trinkets.
What I ordered: I ordered the avocado tostada ($8.95): a crispy corn tortilla topped with your choice of beef – ground or shredded, chicken, pork or beans, lettuce, tomato, sour cream, avocado slices and Monterey Jack cheese and served with a healthy portion of Spanish rice and refried beans. My dining companion ordered the taquitos de carne asada ($8.95): two soft fresh handmade corn tortillas filled with flame-broiled center cut top sirloin steak, tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. Also served with Spanish rice and refried beans.
What I loved: I always love the tortilla chips and salsa that are offered immediately upon being seated at many Mexican restaurants. I also loved that we were offered two types of salsa – one red, tomato-based and the second a green, spicy I loved the fresh, generous portion of perfectly ripened avocado on my tostada.
Why I loved it: For two people to have lunch, using a coupon…less than $10! Not a bad deal. The food also came very quickly. Our waiter very friendly and served us with a smile.
Cost: Average ($9-$14 per lunch plate)
