Being the broke and no income person I am, I only visit this relatively overpriced restaurant on its Specials night. Bahaha. But hey, so does everyone else!
Deemed Taco Tuesdays, you can leave your table manners at home and eat with your hands, and order more than what you are capable of finishing, but still not more than what you can afford.
Because at only $2 per taco, I can afford to get full :D
It really is a bargain compared to their normal price, which is a crazy $12 for just 2 tacos. And pretty much everything else on the menu is pricey, which explains why most people within the vicinity of your table order cheap tacos. Everyone's got BRAINS! And thin wallets... ho ho ho
I LOVE being able to say this when ordering from anywhere:
"One of each please!"
Don't gawp your mouth at me, there was only 4 types of tacos.
I'm not thaaaaat bad.
So here we go, the budget meal (which in fact, is not really, as $12 can probably get you something more and fills you up more elsewhere).
Here is our order (which was missing one taco, but quickly replenished soon after):
|T A C O S !|
So at $2 per taco, it generally seems worth it, especially when compared to their usual $6. But add anything else to that and it becomes a different story, because if you want to eat your tacos with a helping of sour cream and cheese, that would cost you an additional $6
And, with my ingenius mathematical ability, you could get another THREE tacos! No sides thanks.
|Frijoles & Rice|
That it is edible.
Which is...a pretty universal rule.
I'm so very daring and adventurous but only when it comes to food. I am a wuss at everything else. But I'm just like a baby, give me something and I will stuff it in my mouth.
|Mushy Purple Paste|
Instead I was greeted with this mushy ground up purple mixture, bursting thru the taco and softening the crispy taco shell, turning into mush.
Mush with mush, and a savoury taste to liven things up.
|South Western Spiced Chicken|
I think whenever I'm eating, I'm in a world of my own and don't seem to pay attention to whatever's happening around me. I'm daintily floating thru my own gluttonous thoughts and oblivious to anything non food related. Cause this happened:
Friend: "Hey there's corn in this"
Me: *la di da...nom om nom...eat eat eat*
*5 minutes later*
Me: "Heeeeeeyy there's corn in this!"
A bit light handed on the meat, but you can't complain at $2 a taco.
Taste wise... meh, it's shredded beef. And a block of unshredded beef as well.
Tacos are messy to eat, for me anyway. Piling in the vegetables on one side results in them falling out of the other. In one end and out the other - NOT COOL! (But I guess that's the natural way of things :P) I gave up and ate the taco and vegetables separately, cause more pieces were ending up on the table and my lap rather than my stomach.
Annnddd, no picture of the Chili Corne Carne. No lighting. Forgot. Some food blogger I am!
Overall a good feed for the price but I guess it's a relatively easy meal to recreate yourself, considering the basic ingredients for a typical taco.
Not a brightly lit environment but the atmosphere is buzzing and laid back dining, with multicoloured napkins and surroundings.
The table next to me had a dish that was pretty much untouched. Unbelievable but true. Could imply many things.
However the prices charged are on the verge of pricey, for what it is. Both times I visited were pretty busy, but it's hard to judge when there's so many patrons swooping in for Taco Tuesday :) Tuesdays are the best when you're on a spending diet - movies, food and probably the best cheap ever: cheap waffles for a cheap and sweet ending.
And it's just down the road!
So. You can be cheap and walk there instead and save on petrol money, ho ho ho.
That way, you can walk off your tacos and order 2 waffles, to make up for lost food.
