Oooh, Mexico It sounds so simple I just got to go
Near the entrance to the Ravenel Bridge (which thankfully, I walked this morning at 6:30 am), but far from the beaten path on Meeting Street lies a little slice of burrito, taco, enchilada – you name it, heaven.
We arrived at noon to find a packed parking lot except for the one handicapped spot in the picture. Parking is free by the way. As you walk up to the restaurant, it’s not much to look at. There are few signs in the window and it is flanked by an outdoor patio to your left.
The bar is a shotgun counter with the kitchen line directly behind it. For awhile I wasn’t sure if they even served liquor, but then I saw a few beer taps and a margarita went by. There is no real mention of alcohol in their menu, which I think they can play up a lot more. But let’s skip the beverages and move directly to the food, which was well worth the treasure hunt to find the place.
The menu is a moderately priced, a two-sided laminated type with about 30 items on it. There is a lot to choose from and most of the items are accompanied by rice and beans – the usual suspects. The waiter took our order on small, paper pad and put the chit on a rail in the kitchen. He rings the check in later from the carbonless paper on his pad, but there is no delay to start to make your lunch. One thing about this place is speed.
Our food was served in about five minutes. I ordered the “Fro Burrito”, which should have been called the OMG Burrito as it was easily the size of my forearm. My husband ordered the “Chicken Enchiladas” which were piping hot and packed with flavor. I thought he was going to lick his plate. It was just that good.
Not since I lived in Texas have I had such authentic Mexican food. Remember that it is somewhat out of the way, but well worth the trip.
