Week 10 - Don Lucio's Taco Shop II‎

Don Lucio's Taco Shop II‎
Mira Mesa

Eater #1 - Horchata and a Beef Taco
Too sick to eat - bailed home. The Horchata was rancid. The joint was funky. The only reason we went there was to bring lunch to Eater #6's casa - she is down after having Hip Dysplasia surgery.

Eater #2 - some kinda combo
Shitty soggy rolled tacos and the beans must have been imported from the Fumunda region of Mexico. The best thing about them is they had a credit card machine.

Eater #4 - Chicken Taco - Mexican Coke
Soggy fall apart chicken taco. No real veggies, more soggy. Long wait, scary decor...BUT they did sell coke in a bottle.

Eater #5 - Chicken Taco, beans and Rice
I thought the Pollo Asado Taco was pretty bland. The beans were awful, but the rice was pretty good. I liked that they had a credit card machine. The place was kinda dingy and smelly. The lady overcharged my credit card for my taco, but later gave me $1.25 cash.

Eater #6 - Some kinda taco, Mexican Coke
my taco tasted good, but was mushy. Where is this place so I know not to go there. ;)

No Pictures. Unless Eater #6 agrees to posting pix of her scar!

Week 9

El Sol
North Park

Eater #1 – Shrimp Taco and Carnitas Taco, Horchata
El Sol is a little hole in the wall on University near Florida. You wouldn’t expect the damn good tacos that are to be had by looking at the outside of the building. The shrimp taco was stuffed with nice big shrimp, cheese, onions and bell peppers – all seasoned with black pepper and other spices – it was really rich, and I loved it. The carnitas were pretty good, the pork was a little tough, not soft and stringy like I like it, but the quacamole was perfect – good guacamole goes a long way. The waiter was a nice guy, but the service was a little slow – but what do you expect when the food is that well prepared? Another nice touch was the “real” plates, glasses and silverware. El Sol could have easily been a paper plate and plastic fork kinda joint.

I’m going back, I’ll bet that the pollo kills.
