It was Cinco de Mayo, so we tried Moe's Southwest Grill. After ten minutes with very little movement (the line was so long), we left. Next we tried Las Palmas, a very good local chain. Same problem there. We didn't even bother standing in line.
Now we're at Taco Bell. No lines! ... and apparently, no service, either. After placing our order and sitting down, they forgot about us even though there was no one else here! Crappy food and crappy service. Tara texted, "Even McDonald's would have been better!"
So they comp'd us dessert. But they couldn't even get that right. We chose churros but they brought us cinnamon twists instead. True, they're pretty much the same thing, it's just that we asked for one thing and got something slightly different.
Afterward via Facebook, my sister Lucy commented, "Taco Bell is not real Mexican food!" My wife would agree. I brought home a burrito for her. She took one bite and, before she could even swallow it, asked, "What is this?" Chicken burrito, I told her. "Doesn't taste like chicken. Tastes like lard or something." No, that's just your basic Taco Bell burrito taste, I said. "Well, I'm not eating it," she said.
I'll have it for lunch tomorrow. :)
P.S. - Thanks, Dad, for the spelling correction on "Cinco"
