Oh lordy guys this week is a good one!
We have found a couple Mexican restaurants around we absolutely LOVE, but it's all been super "authentic" Mexican food (aka, stuff you'd probably eat in Mexico)
Which was amazing! But Kareem and I kinda missed the mid tier Mexican we've grown up on (El Rods is what I mean to all my Blacksburg fam) Now, we have the perfect place ;)
The restaurant itself is absolutely AMAZING! There are a couple around, but we went to the one in La Loma in Henderson. (2655 E Desert Inn Road
Las Vegas, NV 89121)
The view was absolutely amazing of the city, and fantastic lighting for my selfies ;) (pictures at the end)
Incredible of course! When we came in we had to wait around 15 or 20 minutes to get sat because it was super crowded and we didn't have reservations.
We had two different waiters come around for us, one to get our drinks and one who took our orders for food. We probably had two because we were also in an area with a party of like 20 people, so he probably came around to help the other waiter out.
Our food came out in a good amount of time for the restaurant being completely full. I believe we waited around 10-15 minutes for the food to come out.
Oh my lord have mercy it was SO good! They started us off with chips, salsa and bean dip (which was quite unexpected!)
Kareem got a chicken and fajita burrito that was the size of my forearm and I got the taco and chili releno combo. It was WAY more food than we both ever expected and we enjoyed every bite.
This was the type of mid tier Mexican restaurant we were looking for but the food was definitely not mid tier. It tasted authentic but was also the exact type I was looking for (not sure if it made sense, but it was a lot tastier than I thought!)
Pretty good for the amount of food you get! There are some pricier items, some cheaper but all worth it in my opinion. Our margs were $9 each so their drinks were a bit pricey outside of happy hour, however if we just went for food the bill wouldn't have been more than around $25 which is a good price for two people.
We would go back if we wanted to have a nice dinner together, but if you're looking for something quick and cheap I would find another restaurant!
SO fun! We went on a Friday night so it was probably a bit more popping than any other normal day. There was live music from a solo guitarist and their birthday celebrations were hype too! One guy even got 3 tequila shots!
I've been wanting to go back every day since we've gone. I think that sums it up :)
