Cheese baked in a small cast iron skillet is available with a few different mix-in options. The one I tried was “Norteno” style, with ground up chorizo beneath the thick and gooey blanket of cheese. The tasty crust that formed on top from being under the broiler (or maybe by being sprinkled with tequila and set on fire?) was the best part.
Extremely pricey at $7 a taco, but the meat was flavorful and perfectly grilled.
Of the three dishes these small, crispy pork rolls had the least oomph, but the duo of dipping sauces was delicious.
The steak tacos are also available in an entree size, and the skillet of queso is accompanied with a cup of guacamole and flour tortillas. This amount of food was perfect for two people.
The Margarita Clasica (not pictured) that I ordered to wash all this down with was not good. The tartness was overpowering and the tequila seemed non-existant, so I was basically drinking a watered down, sour limeade. I have a hunch sitting at the bar during happy hour (when the margaritas are only $5) makes a difference with how the drinks turn out.
