I can't remember the name of the place but its on Central right by Morningside. The place is awesome! Its got a big yellow sign and looks like it was a old fast food joint. Has a drive thru but im not sure if its used. I will see what the name is today when i go by it.

I believe it's another La Unica

Heh, cantina.

Wife and I used to go there all the time. She loved it, I thought it was meh. Not just mexican stuff there but also spanish dishes.

They had a Monterrey chef come by a few months ago and they've added a few more things to the menu. I usually stick with the Pollo Loredo, shrimp tacos, or the tradicional enchiladas.

I'm like you, but the fiance loves it.

That's what I get for eating something with a wimpy name like shrimp.

Back to eating beef, bison and assorted birds of prey.

So I assume you are not doing the diet meat is on?

I'm munching on pre-cooked bacon as we speak.

Their Guacomole owns my face. I'm a big fan of the shrimp tacos as well (Tacos Marco Polo I think). They did recently flesh out their lunch special menu with a bunch of new things that I've liked thus far. A bit more of the seafood items seems to be the slant, which I'm definitely in favor of.

Never been there, but did like the Soul tapas place on Pecan/Central.
