Our daughters were determined that we go out to dinner to celebrate their father's new job. I was determined to dine somewhere off our well beaten path. I suggested Los Dos Amigos Hacienda, since we were already in the north end of town and it had been awhile since we'd eaten Mexican fare.
The restaurant (it shares a parking lot with Chuck E. Cheese's) looked as if it had recently been updated - both the interior and exterior were bright, clean and inviting. Even the front doors looked new. We were immediately seated by the friendly host, and our warm chips, beans and salsa arrived within seconds of being seated. Everyone ordered a drink - 2 margaritas, one pina colada and one (for over indulgent me) Casuela (it was served in a small bowl!).
The four of us took our time browsing the large menu and finally settled on the following; Guadalajara Burrito, Carne Asada, Burrito Fajita, and Burrito Asado. My Guadalajara Burrito was filled with moist, tender, seasoned, shredded pork, with a light avocado sauce poured over the top. Black beans, pico de gallo and rice were served on the side.
My daughter's Carne Asada was ordered medium, but she said it was a little like beef jerky and might order it rare next time - if she were to order it again. Her pinto beans were yummy, tasted homemade, and the rice was good, though a little greasy. A few tortillas came with her meal, too. She decided on flour and was disappointed. She thought they tasted like the thick Don Pedro ones you buy at the grocery.
The service was excellent (although, water would've been nice) and we had a nice evening out.
