20090313 Rice to Die for, What Happened to the Chips?
I'm not sure what beanybuns12 expects in an Arizona Mexican restaurant, but it would be interesting to know what beanybuns12 thinks great Mexican is served. I'd give it a try to see what I think.
I see beanybuns12 likes the Fiesta Mexicana. The atmosphere is definitely more fiesta colorful and the food is good too. I'll definitely follow some of beanybuns advice on other local spots.
The Reynoso family began in Globe and have grown restaurants all over AZ. I know many people who will not drive through Globe without a visit to Chalo's Rolling Pin.
The wife guided us to La Casita after a long Friday road trip. It was the end of the evening rush. Looking the menu over I realized we were in a Casa Reynoso. I ordered one of my favories, a chile half plate green, The Wife had a tostada and enchilada.
The salsa was the usual good stuff, but I'm not sure what happened to our bowl of chips. Some of them were oil saturated and not the quality I expect of La Casa Reynoso.
My green chile tasted fine, but the meat was tougher than I remember. I'd forgotten completely about the rice, shared with me by The Wife. It had a delicious flavor from what combination of spices I do not know.
The Wife shared some cheese enchilada. It was excellent. I like onions, and the cheese filling had bits of half-cooked onion in the mix. Delicious. I don't eat enchiladas much, but I'll have La Casa Reynoso's the next time I'm in one.
If I recall, we spent about $19.00 for two entrees and ice tea.
Overall good food filling up two hungry travelers. We'll be back some day.
