Mariachi Loco

As the days of working at The Daily Athenaeum dwindled down, Travis, Melanie and I decided to spend one of our last evenings celebrating at Mariachi Loco. I'm not a big fan of Mexican, but this made me a believer. It's located near the other Walmart on Hornbeck Road. It's owned by the same people as Los Mariachis, so I knew it would be good quality. I didn't, however, think it would be even better.


One of the best parts about a Mexican restaurant is that they usually serve up complementary chips and salsa. I'm not too much for the hot salsa, but a nice free appetizer is always nice.

I never know what to order at Mexican restaurants, but to my luck, a suggestions was right on the front cover of the menu: Special Dinner. It had a little bit of everything, which included a taco and various other Mexican arrangements that I didn't know what they were. When it came out on the, not one, but two plates, I still didn't know what everything was. I do know that there was a hamburger patty-like deal with cheese on it, with four other Mexican burrito/chimichanga ordeals and refried beans and rice.

I wish I was able to describe the dish in more detail because it was yummy, but all I really know is that there was the soft wrap with a blend of chicken, spices and beans. I was hesitant, but once I tasted it, I was pleasantly surprised. It was delicious! Though a little on the spicy side, we ordered a pitcher of peach margaritas that fit the bill to make the dinner a delicious combination of spicy food and sweet alcohol. The peach margaritas were refreshing but strong enough to make me feel warm and fuzzy as we left.
