Decisions, Decisions . . .

For once we didn’t have much on the schedule today, except for gassing up the truck and eating lunch out somewhere.

And now we’ve got a problem. But it’s a good one to have.

We’ve eaten at San Lorenzo’s, a nearby Mexican restaurant, twice now and it’s really good. But for some reason we couldn’t be satisfied with just one good nearby Mexican restaurant, so we had to go and find another one.

There is a Los Ramirez Mexican restaurant near my client’s office and it’s always busy, to the extent that my client’s parking lot apparently gets used as the restaurant’s overflow parking at night after the office is closed.

We had noticed that they have another location near us on the way down FM-517 to our storage unit. So today we decided to give it a try. But we didn’t have really high hopes since we checked out the menu and thought the prices were really cheap. I mean, REALLY cheap.

And in comparison to San Lorenzo’s it didn’t get off to a good start. Neither of us thought the chips and salsa were as good here at Los Ramirez. The salsa at San Lorenzo was thicker, and warm, as are the chips. Not that it was bad, it was just . . .

Jan got the Pechuga Rellana, a chicken breast stuffed with Grilled Shrimp and Broccoli, and served with Charro Beans, Lettuce, Tomato, and Sliced Avocado.

I got my go-to usual Beef Fajita Taco Salad, but wasn’t expecting a lot since it only cost $6.99. So I was very happily surprised to get this.

The meat was delicious, and wasn’t just spread on top. It was piled up all the way  to the bottom. There must have been at least a pound of fajita meat in there.

And Jan was crazy about hers. It was absolutely stuffed with grilled shrimp, and the broccoli had been grilled as well.

And remember the ‘cheap’ part.  Well, it was. But cheap AND delicious go well together. Jan’s Pechuga Rellana was only $7.99, $3 or $4 cheaper than the equivalent at other places.

And my Beef Fajita Taco Salad was only $6.99. But it gets better. That salad is also on their lunch menu, which is every day from 11am to 5pm. So it was only $5.59! 

I’ve paid $11.99 for something as good as this elsewhere. And this is the first time in a good while we’ve both had full meals with iced tea for only $18.14 plus tip.

So now we have problem. Two close-by Mexican restaurants, both really, really good.

Decision, Decisions!

Jan and I started talking about our upcoming trip to Florida, sometime in October. But because we going a slightly different way than we have before, we’re looking for a nice, cheap, (there’s that word again), RV Park for a one night stop in the Tallahassee, FL area.

So, any recommendations?

Thought for the Day:

Never question your wife’s judgment. Look who she married.

    You said cheap……Beaver Lake CG in Quincy, FL about 20 miles west of Tallahassee right on I10.  It’s just a grass field with FHUs behind a gas station and Burger King.  It’s Passport  America and $18.50 plus tax.  We use it as a convenient overnighter.
