Let’s make this one snappy because, we don’t have a whole lot to say. Hubby bear ordered the Burrito Colorado ($24). The menu says this dish is “slow cooked beef in sauce of new mexico chile” – which is apparently onion, garlic, cumin, pepper & sour cream – okay sure. They merried it up with some basic salsa, black beans and rice. “How was it?” I asked. Hubby bear responded with a twinge, “Yeahhhhh, errrr, it’s just okay. Nothing Taco Bill can’t do blind-folded.”
I got the Vegie Chimichanga ($21) which was a grilled tortilla hiding a bundle of mixed grilled vegetables, pico de gallo, coriander, and cheese. The filling of my chimichange was actually good, but I curse myself for not recognizing what this menu description meant: ‘salsa barbacoa’, because that was quite honestly the most significantly inappropriate, sickly sweet, unnecessary topping you could possibly put on anything Mexican. Who puts sweet BBQ sauce on a freakin’ chimichanga!?!?! It didn’t even enter my mind to try and translate the description because I was expecting a salsa – not BBQ sauce!! Thank gawd for the sour cream and rice salad, it helped wash the disappointment out of my mouth.

I think you get my drift here. 2 stars all the way bambinos.
