Very disappointing after loving the Ixtapa #2 taco truck at Long Wharf in New Haven. The taco truck, especially the lengua (tongue) tacos are some of the Mexican food I have had in years. Simple, cheap, delicious and authentic.
This just feels like gringo Mexican restaurants across the country. The chips and salsa are very good (I preferred the mild to the hot salsa), but my mole enchiladas are only okay.
After having excellent food at the taco truck having mediocre Mexican food on very hot plate with rice and beans is disappointing. Came out oddly fast too.
Would love if they had a la carte here. Funny too to Yelp the day after watching the South Park Yelp episode, I could never imagine asking for anything extra for Yelping. Although I do love the Yelp check in specials.
This was a Yelp review first. Really disappointing place, posting this 2 days later. The menu mentioned the “Warning: Peanut Butter” on the Mole sauce. The mole didn’t have near enough complexity.
When I sat down and looked at the menu I considered turning around. One of the combo specials included tacos and it was 1 hard taco with rice and beans for $8. My mediocre enchilada was around $12.
