Taco Taco

Dec 15, 2014

  There are so many subtle nuances that make these tacos great, I don’t even know where to begin.  Let’s start with the name, Taco Taco.  That is two times the word Taco.  I immediately thought of other instances in advertising or pop culture where a word was doubled up for added emphasis.  Doctor Doctor comes to mind from the Thompson Twins....

Mi Ranchito Grill

Mi Ranchito Grill

May 15, 2014

  A quick look at Urbanspoon’s list of Mexican cuisine restaurants in Salt Lake City and Provo gives me about 540 results back.  This makes for some major competition for those with a hankering for ice-cold horchata and a big plate of enchiladas or carne asada.  Mi Ranchito has been doing business in Utah for 30 years now.  I love Mexican food, and...

El Habanero

El Habanero

Apr 3, 2014

Drive by this place and blink, and you may just well miss it.  El Habanero has been in this Magna neighborhood for as long as I can remember, and I have only been there a hand full of times.  It isn’t Lone Star Taqueria or Red Iguana, but the food is pretty good quality, and it has carved out a nice little niche for surrounding locals with a hankering for...

Tres Hombres

Tres Hombres

If you work or live in the Millcreek, Utah area, you are familiar with this area and building.  I’ve driven by it a hundred times, and have seen the Tres Hombres sign on top.  Of all the Mexican restaurants in Salt Lake City, Tres Hombres perhaps has the coolest space and building with the most history. (Blue Iguana is in that mix too)  The building has...

El Menos

El Menos

El Menos is a Mexican restaurant that pretty much everything about it, screamed Mexican restaurant, and that is not a bad thing.  First of all walking into the place, there was a little stand outside the restaurant that sold mango and chili, and Elotes.  The elote is a corn on the cob on a stick, covered with mayonnaise, cotija cheese, and chili pepper, and...

Los Cucos Mexican Cafe

Los Cucos Mexican Cafe

Sep 23, 2013

  According to my wife Los Cucos in Colombia is another term for underwear.  Luckily this isn’t a Colombian restaurant, but a Mexican one.  I didn’t find any dirty underwear in here at all.  It wasn’t the best Mexican I’ve had in Salt Lake, but it was clean, the service was outstanding, and the food was still above average with the...

Luna Blanca Taqueria

Luna Blanca Taqueria

Jul 26, 2013

There were several questions I had as I walked up to Luna Blanca today for lunch.  1. It is located in Holladay, and just a few miles away from the famous Lone Star Taqueria, how was it going to compare?  2.  I read some reviews on Urbanspoon, and some people said that it was kinda expensive.  I was pretty hungry today so I was concerned I wasn’t going to...

Holy Guacamole!  That’s the first thing that comes to mind when writing this post, because this place literally has some of the best guacamole that I’ve ever tasted.  And they don’t just have one type of guacamole, they have five different varieties as well as a “flavor of the day” that they make from scratch.  Oh yeah, this is a...

Moe’s Southwest Grill

Moe’s Southwest Grill

Feb 23, 2013

A solid choice for St. Louis area quick service Mexican food.  I was traveling in the area about 6 months ago, and at meetings across the street at Monsanto Headquarters.  A couple of the ladies there said that they eat there all the time.  I can’t say I am surprised after sampling the wares. Moe’s has some awesome tasting chips, guacamole, and...
