Exploration

Standard

Yesterday my husband and I decided to try somewhere new for brunch.  We searched online for something we thought would be a little out of the ordinary.  Once we located a place we could both agree on, we put the address in in the GPS and set out on our way.  The day was sunny and beautiful and the drive was nice.  We get there, walk in and see a very long wait to be seated.  It is 11:30 and we didn’t eat breakfast, and started wondering if waiting another 30 minutes was going to be worth it, Todd was also concerned about getting back in time for the ACC Championships (yawn).

We had noticed when we drove in the shopping center seemed to actually have more restaurants than retail stores.  So we decided to see if any of them were open for lunch.  Right next store was a Mexican restaurant, and I can always be talked in to chips and salsa.  We gave up our wait and walked right in and were seated.  As all Mexican restaurants they gave us chips and salsa while we perused the menu.

Now, being someone who really enjoys her chips and salsa, I was not expecting all that much since most places seem to keep their salsa rather on the bland side so as not to surprise anyone.  But surprise, this was good!  There was just enough bite to it to give a little sting, but not enough to make your eyes water.  From there, our brunch turned lunch only got better.  All of their normal weekly lunch specials were less than $5 for the day!  The food was really good, and the atmosphere casual.  you could tell that several customers also came in when they found a long wait next door, but there was a couple next to us who appear to come every Sunday.

Needless to say, while we were originally exploring for a new place to try brunch, we found a new Mexican restaurant that we really enjoyed.  Now to go back and try the margaritas!
