Appetizers: The chips were overly salty, while the salsa had a spicy kick. Chips were more than sufficient, and waiter agreed to provide more chips gratis.
Main Course: The veggie fajitas resulted in a mediocre meal. The sweet corn much smartly placed in a corn husk was a pleasant gastronomic surprise not uncommon in US Mexican restaurants. The rest of the package was a standard fare of mushrooms with too much cheese, beans, guacamole, etc. The fajitas were simply lacking originality, unique flavors, interesting texture, and any semblance of creativity. Such numbingly normal fare is expected in a “Mexican” restaurant serving Tex-Mex food. The Ricky Martin and stale American Pop music set the tone for the restaurant and the meal.
Beverages: the pineapple-coconut margarita provided a fresh and unique twist the standard ‘rita, with the sweet flavors overwhelming any taste of tequila.
