Zapata’s Corner

I have driven by Zapata’s for weeks thinking to myself, “I haven’t done a review lately, I should do one there!” of course, every time I had that thought, I had just left some other eating establishment and the last thing I needed was MORE calories!

Today, was the day!

Ernesto’s

I used to consider myself a Mexican food snob.  Having lived in Phoenix briefly in the late 90’s, I think I know Mexican food. Way back when, I grew up on Chi-Chi’s and the original Tumbleweed (before it became a chain and started to go wrong).  Before I started eating better and healthier, I would have Mexican food at least twice a week.  You name it, I ate it-at least once.

El Nopalito

If you remember from my El Mundo review, I really enjoy Mexican food. Now I’m not sure how “authentic” these types of restaurants are – you know the ones with approximately the same menu – but man, they have some Good Eats, as my man Alton Brown would say.

El Mundo

I think at least one of my parents must secretly be from Mexico. I would eat this food every day of the week if I could. I mostly love that there are like 5-10 ingredients, but hundreds, nay, thousands of scrumptious possibilities.

So, being such a Mexican food junkie, I know you’ll be surprised to know that I have never been to El Mundo before Jam and I headed out the other day. It’s like, a sin or something, right? This is THE hipster spot for gettin’ yo’ burrito and margarita on, right? Well, let ’em have it…I’ll be at El Caporal. […]

Bazo’s Fresh Mexican Grill

Subtitle: “No, really…HOLD the guacamole, please!”

I really hate to post a lukewarm review as my second post on this site, but as my favorite bumper sticker reads, “Pobody’s Nerfect”.

I went with my lunch-going co-worker (we’ll call him “Jam” from now on) and another good buddy of mine (who is vegetarian – pertinent to this review). Maybe we just came on the wrong day, as my lunch buddies and I were all fairly disappointed. […]
