We obviously love to eat here at Pulse, and we definitely love Mexican food! Good news for us, then, that Mexican restaurants seem to be popping up on every corner of [downtown] Orlando.
Tijuana Flats has been a staple for some time now, but then there was Mucho, Gringos, and now Chico’s Dirty Tacos and Tequila, which I recently had the opportunity to check out for ‘Taco Tuesday’ with a friend.
I think the server gave us the best indication of what to expect when we asked what his favorite menu item was and he responded, “I’m not really a big fan of Mexican food.” No really. That happened. Newsflash to restaurants: at least tell your servers to pretend to like your food.
Anyway, if you’re looking for salt-less chips, mediocre tacos and servers with no knowledge of Mexican food, Chico’s is an awesome bet. If you’re looking for good Mexican food and a fun, knowledgeable staff, hit up Mucho or Gringos … or hell, even Tijuana Flats.
Sorry, Chico’s. But, look at it this way, with a location right next door to one of the best bars downtown, at least you have location on your side.
