11/21/09-Los Mariachis, Wallingford, CT

I apologize for the lateness on this review--I didn't realize I forgot to blog! I digress.

We decided to grab a quick dinner before heading to the casino to see Jimmy Buffett (AMAZING!) rather than trying to get a seat at Margaritaville with the rest of my parrotheads and what better to get than Mexican?! The restaurant was relatively empty and we were told to pick a table. The dining area is very brightly decorated with art and other items from Mexico, along with a banner or two for Corona. Our waitress brought over a basket of tortilla chips and two salsas--a spicy red and a tomatillo. Tom and I were both privy to the red--I wouldn't even call it a salsa, rather a red sauce. One of the specials for the evening was a chipotle chicken quesadilla, which we were so glad we tried--bursting with flavor, nice and smoky with a good amount of heat yet not overpowering. For entrees, Tom had the supreme steak burrito--it was HUGE and delicious--chock full of rice, beans, steak, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and cheese. My entree was the flauta dinner (no beans for me!) and it was a good choice. Overall, this is a good place to get a quick dinner at great prices. Considering we live right down the street, I am sure we'll be back!
