I was taken back. Friends raved about this Mexican establishment and I was skeptical. I don't really care for Mexican, but I go to the restaurants for the wife. We've been to many, what would make this place particularly different?
We are welcomed by the most charismatic server, Ishmael, who I later learn is the owner's son. He is rolling joke after joke as he seats us. Really funny guy. Kids loved him. I enjoyed him too.
I asked for HIS recommendation. I like plenty to eat, no pork, not crazy about tomatoes, & like crispy textures. He brings me 3 hard shell chicken tacos too big for me to finish. These hard shells were made by hand and fried till crispy on the grill. It was amazing. I've have never had such an entree. The chicken in the taco was so tasty... extremely well seasoned.
Every plate was creatively served as if there was some Talent in the kitchen awaiting discovery. Come to find out... It's the Dad/Owner. They had other employees, but it was obvious who made the magic in this place.
We passed 2 Mexican restaurants on the way to Jalapeño Grill.
I would pass 20 & drive an honest hour to revisit this place. Absolutely remarkable!
I think The Travel Channel needs to survey this establishment.
