After work yesterday I had a meeting with the Downtown Neighborhood Association. That meeting wasn't scheduled until 6, so I had some time to blow. Well, when I have free time the first thing I think of is FOOD! The meeting was on Riverside so I decided to grab something quick on Main St. I had to drag my friend Will out the house to go with me. He's a grumpy guy, but one of the coolest people I know. He's going to kill me for that comment BTW!
We stumbled into Maciel's Tortas and Tacos. I have been here previously for lunch a while back and I hadn't thought much of it. Then again, I only had 1 taco! Who the hell eats only 1 taco? I might have been in a funk that day.
The staff was uber nice and the place was spotless! You could probably eat off the floor in this spot. Don't eat off the floor though. That's just weird. I had the garlic shrimp taco and the chicken Huarache. Will had just 1 chicken taco! We've already established that people that eat 1 taco are strange.
The garlic shrimp taco was amazing! The avocado and the pineapple played every nicely with the garlic shrimp. The Huarache is a different beast in itself. It's like an open faced sandwich that I was told is normally picked up and eaten like a sandwich, but I have yet to master the ways of the Jedi to achieve this feat. It was very good, but it didn't cut very well. It didn't matter to me because I still enjoyed each bite of it.
Will enjoyed his taco.......
