My husband and I are not what you would call social butterflies, but we do get out on occasion. Last night, we went for a second visit to Carlota’s Authentic Mexican in Catalina, it was Taco Tuesday Night.
What’s not to like!
You can have either a Ground Beef or Shredded Chicken Taco for $1.00 each, so long as you order a side dish, such as Guacamole, Sour Cream, Refried Beans, Rice or even a Side Salad. Let’s not forgot the key component, the Salsa, DELISH! I think we requested a refill 4 or 5 times, it’s that good.
One of our dining partners requested a Beef Taco, no cheese please, with a Salad as her side; it was HUGE! It was loaded with all kinds of goodies, like sliced Avocado, Radishes, diced Tomatoes, sliced Cucumbers, Sweet Red Bell Peppers and her meal came out to $2.99 plus tax & tip. Well, she did have a House Margarita, but I think that’s only $4 or so, still a great deal.
For my husband and I, 2 Ground Beef Tacos (oh, btw, these are the hard shell tacos if you noticed) and a Chile Relleno. Now, by ordering the Relleno, we really didn’t have to order a side to get our Tacos priced at a dollar each, but we like that combination. I did ask for another side of Guacamole and Refried Beans, mostly `cuz I like them and Carlota’s makes their Beans with lard, no vegetarian here! Our charming waiter also informed us that they had “any Mexican bottled beer” for $2.50, YEAH, I’ll have Dos Equis Amber, dos cervezas por favor, mi amigo! Our tab was $26.xx including the tax and tip, and we were STUFFED!
Cheap and friendly, the best kind of night out with friends. Thanks Terri, Bobbie, Dave and Terry, we really enjoyed ourselves.
