Jarod and I work about 2 blocks from Cafe Hornitos, which is near the corner of 38th 1/2 and IH 35. We were quite excited to see that the building which had housed a very mediocre Chinese food establishment was being retooled as a Mexican joint. We giggled silently to ourselves, giddy with the thought of tacos that were a short, short walk away from our place of labor.
Sadly, we were wildly disappointed when we visited the place. It features a very run of the mill Tex-Mex menu, which wouldn't be a problem if the items on said menu were good.
The meal started off with a tasteless, watery salsa that let us know what we were in for. The crispy taco and enchilada plates that showed up soon after were a disaster. Just the worst kind of mediocre food that tasted like it came straight from the microwave.
We've been there, so now you don't need to.
