ok..stopped in and ordered dinner, brought it home and this is my opinion...for what it is worth LOL
They were very courteous while taking my order.
They was nothing that made me feel things were unclean or inappropriately handled. The wait staff seemed to be attentive to their tabled customers and they were well mannered and polite.
My order was quickly prepared and I was amazed at the amount of food i got!
I do not know if this place is more pricey than Garcia's. Personally I do not care for Garcia's. I am a very snobby mexin food lover. I like lots of garlic, LOTS of cilantro and I enjoy green chile. No one here seems to know what that is *sigh and If I do find a place that has it is is just a green tomato sauce with no spice, green chile should set me on fire! They had green tomatillo sauce so I bravely ordered a side trying to to get my hopes too high, haha
I can never wait to get home with my food so i attacked the chips in the car LOL they were toasty warm and the salsa was just ok..for me it was too saucy and not enough cilantro, but it did have a little in it so that was a start. It was not spicy at all, a shame :(
So, I get my food home and My vegetarian Quesadilla was massive, it was overflowing with onions and peppers and beans..I expected something small with a few peppers really. So this was a shock! The also gave me a huge portion of spanish rice. I am not a fan of spanish rice and left it for later.
I opened another box and had a very large serving of sourcream, and lettuce and an OK portion of pico de gallo.
here is where I got nervous, I am very picky about my pico (chuckle) and had to try it first..and WOW!! Major cilantro, wonderful!! and a bit of a bite too! BRAVO!! I applaude your Pico!
So...I opened the green chile..it was refrigerated so i warmed it up and stuck my fork in it to taste and it bit me back!:O
Unbelievable! It was very tastey! I personally would put a bit more garlic and onions but hey, thats homemade haha.
I dont know if this is homemade of theirs or bottled and served BUT it was good! I enjoyed it. It was not sweet at all and so many others usually are...
The Quesidilla smothered in the green chile and covered in Pico was wonderful. It was a bit messy and i had to use my fork but this made it so much more impressive, it was stuffed full!
So, now I am full and can still enjoy the cilantro in my breath (hhhhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)
I did try the rice and did not care for it, but again I do not spanish rice in general so...I did pour a bit of the green chile on it and that helped! haha
I realize everyone has different tastes and I am accustomed to western style mexican cooking and that is a bit ..ok a LOT different that what I can find around here.
I hope everyone will give the place a try and if you dont like them that is fine, but there is no reason to bad mouth a place. We need new business here and I try to always be supportive of new ventures!
If you are not a cilantro fan the pico is definitely not for you. Please save it for me and I will be grateful ;o)
