Tacos and more lives up to name

Kori Siebert, Staff Writer

Tacos and More really does have tacos and it really does have more. They have a decent amount of “Mexican-American” style food I’d say, as well as a whole section of ice cream along with homemade goodies for sale.

It gives off the vibe of a semi-nice fast food restaurant. You order your food at the front counter, they bring the food to you, and they take the plates away after you’re done. I’d also say it’s a very family-friendly place, but they have a lot of the décor my grandma has in her house so if that’s a turn off, I warned you ahead of time.

It’s in a hidden nook over by Shopko Hometown and Quality Food Center, which was a little sketchy looking, but don’t worry it’s fine. The place is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. everyday so I went in around 8 p.m. to get my second supper on.

The employee working at the time told me he was new, so he didn’t know of any specialty dishes that Tacos and More was known for, so I decided to be adventurous and try the beef and potato burrito dish with chips and cheese as an appetizer.

The chips and cheese were about as simple as they come. The chips didn’t look or taste like they were made in the actual restaurant so I’m guessing they were store bought while the cheese was cold and tasted liked something you could get at a concession stand. Not impressed. I was wanting more pizzazz or some spin on the simple appetizer, but nothing.

Since I’m not much a burrito fan I’m trying to expand my horizon in the burrito world, and the beef and potato dish did the job. It would have taken two hands to pick up that bad boy, but since I’m a messy eater I tried to save my dignity and eat with a fork.

The tortilla, wrapping the goodness inside, tasted like it was a flour shell, but don’t quote me on that, I’m no expert. The stuff inside is exactly what it said would be there, it was beef and potatoes, and I’m not complaining.

The beef had some sort of taco seasoning which created a nice flavor overall, not too spicy and not bland, but the potatoes made the burrito great for me. They were flat and round like Potato Olés from Taco Johns (if you know that Mexican place for reference). Munching down on a burrito is always soft but the short-fat potatoes made for a crunchy good surprise.

Did I mention the dishes came out in five minutes after ordering? An A-plus goes to Tacos and More for the fast service, but ultimately I’d rate this restaurant a 3. It was an average style place with semi -average food, the chips and cheese were a disappointment, but the burrito made the trip worthwhile.

Since we’re in Wayne, America, I’m not going to complain about the places we have to eat, but if we’d have more of a variety I’d put this restaurant on the back burner till I needed to return to test my taste buds to a new burrito.
