I watched as this place in Olathe, was being built from the ground up. When I found it was going to be a “taco” place, I wondered "how good could it be?". I mean would it be in the class of Taco Bell and “ make me run for the border ” or would it be better, a notch above your fast food Mexican places. I am happy to say it is better.
I don’t frequent taco fast food places very often. Tacos are usually part of a my main entree on a meal at full fledged Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurants. I walked in and while talking with the amiable counter women, I asked about some of the items on the menu. I just wanted a little “bite” so I went for the beef soft shell taco. If was $1.00 but I wondered: why is the chicken version was 69 cents more? I took the soft shell taco over to the very nice condiment salsa bar. This is a nice touch indeed. I really liked that I could spoon which condiments and the amount I wanted. There were two kinds of salsa, sliced jalapeno peppers and more. I thought it was funny that there were signs for the “fork” and “spoon”. But the taste of the taco was not a joke. It was very flavorful. The beef and the taco shell were very fresh tasting. The beef combined so well with the tomatoes, the vegetables and the salsa condiments and was quite savory. I was mildly surprised. While one little meal cannot for tell the quality of a place, I can say I that this tasting was a “level above the ordinary”. And that's what I look for especially as a reason for coming back someday and sample some of the offerings. The Cheesecake chimichanga would be one I'd like to sample.
