Most people you talk to will mention how pricey it is which, is for the most part true but I discovered that it doesn’t really have to be. Sure, $13.50 sounds like a lot for tacos but as it turns out, each taco dish can easily feed 2 people since they are served “fajita style”. They also come with family style bowls of brown rice and black beans. With an seemingly endless supply of homemade tortillas you’ll have more than enough food.
We started out with their famous guacomole and house margaritas (a little pricy at 8.75 for a small glass). The guac was really good but my favorite part turned out to be the small dish of chipotle-adobo sauce they served along with it. This allowed you to crank up the heat and smokiness of the dish depending on your preference. Our waitress also brought out small steaming hot tortillas to make guac tacos with. This was just one of the many perks our of waitress Ingres. Managament, if you are reading this, she deserves a raise or some kind of recognition. She was fantastic!
For our main meal we chose the pork carnitas tacos and the Arrachera con Camarones (shrimp and steak stew). The stew was a suggestion by Ingress. It was by far my favorite dish probably because of the chipotle and roasted tomato stewing sauce they use to cook the meat. I don’t what it is about chipotles but they really do make everything taste better.
We skipped dessert so I’ll have to head back for that, maybe during their Mexican Chocolate Festival which starts on the 8th of this month. I also saw on their site that they will be hosting a COMPLIMENTARY Cooking Demo: Saturday, September 18th at 10am. Could be interesting.
