Great tacos. The al pastor is amazing.
First time here, decided I wanted to come here as a treat after surgery (you know how you can't eat before a surgery after usually like midnight the night before) I had seen this place on the map while just looking at the route I had to take to get to a plant sale I went to a few days earlier, looked it up and it seemed to have good reviews and the pictures of the food along with the reviews looked really good 😍. So we came here and it was surprisingly empty, the waitress said it was weird they're normally super busy around that time- we were the only people there- but she made jokes about it and she was super nice and helpful and since we were the only ones there at the time she just sat with us, didn't walk away, waited until we were ready, answered any questions we had. I was so hungry and the food looked so good that I forgot to take any pictures before I started eating, but I can assure you it doesn't even matter how good it looked, it was delicious. I had a 2 chile relleno plate, my dad I think had two tacos. Our friend had one taco. All plates came with rice and beans. Now, I'm not normally a bean person. At restaurants, I'll usually try the beans but more often than not I'll just eat my rice and leave most of the beans. El Farolito has the best refried beans I have ever had. I don't even like when my dad makes beans (Don't tell him) but I could literally just order a plate of rice and beans and some chips and be happy, that's how good they are. In addition to the good food, they have a self serve salsa station, so they have their salsas there as well as cilantro, diced onion, and lime, which is really nice to not have to ask for at a sit down Mexican restaurant, that way you can choose which salsas you want and what and how much garnishings you need etc. More people came into the restaurant as we ate, so maybe we were just a bit early to the lunch rush, who knows 😉? Either way, I definitely reccomend. If you've eaten at Mexicasa before, they're definitely more pricey than they are but the food reminds me of their menu. RIP Mexicasa, shuttered by covid, yet to return.... eat at El Farolito Jr. to fill the void! Makes a great comfort food option too 😋 Vegetarian options: Vegetarian options available, i.e. quesadillas, enchiladas, salad, bean and cheese burrito, rice, as well as pescatarian options, though I can't say as to how separated the cooking surfaces are if you are that sensitive about it. Kid-friendliness: Definitely kid friendly, family friendly, family owned. They have a kids menu. Parking: Decent amount of parking. I'd say I wouldn't expect you to ever struggle to find parking here unless they were completely packed for some reason but I'd wager this is more of a family establishment so more people would come in one vehicle, I wouldn't worry about it. Wheelchair accessibility: My wheelchair and I fit just fine! Tables have plenty of room between and under them for my chair.
Jose the owner was delightfully pleasant to deal with and they have the best street tacos. Will definitely return
