El Cerro: an urban spoon tale

Since we had such good luck finding food using urban spoon, we decided to try a new restaurant. El Cerro is in the same plaza as Anmol and Jeremiah’s. 78% of the people liked it, so that’s plenty of people. I mean, some people have to not like it. If everybody liked it, I would find something wonky about the restaurant. Like people came out of there hypnotized or pod people.

El Cerro is in it’s own little building that looks super small, but there’s enough space for several tables. When we went there, only one other table had anyone in it. That’s ok. Anmol had absolutely nobody in it when we visited that first time. Chris ordered tacos and I ordered carne asada.

Well, mine came overcooked and over spiced. Carne asada isn’t the best cut of meat, but I never had any problems chewing it. My jaw was tired by the third bite. Chris’s taco was blandtastic. It was cheap though, so I suppose that’s why all the college students like to go there. The beer is cheap too.

I don’t know if they get so drunk, they don’t know what’s good or maybe they’ve just never had good mexican food. Whatever the reason, they love this place. But I will never go back again. My jaw still hurts just thinking about it. So much chewing. I should have sent it back, but I think I was overly tired or starving, I ate it, but I didn’t enjoy it, if you want good Mexican food, don’t go there. You’re better off making tacos at home. They’ll taste better.
