District Taqueria

I took advantage of Restaurant Week to finally check out District Taqueria. This trendy little taqueria gives Wichitans an upscale taco joint that also offers a full bar filled with cervezas and top shelf tequilas. Located at Douglas and Washington, it’s a good place to get a quick dinner before hitting up a plethora of … More District Taqueria

Taqueria El Fogon

After doing reviews for several years now, I have developed a checklist for determining if a restaurant is going to be good based on observations alone. Taqueria El Fogon, a small Mexican dive located just north of Harry in the shadow of Via Christi St. Joseph, was the latest establishment I put to the test. … More Taqueria El Fogon

Chiquita’s Corner

Mexican and Asian are my two favorite cuisines, so I was intrigued when I heard that there was a joint offering a little bit of both. Chiquita’s Corner, located in Riverside at 11th and Bitting, is probably the smallest freestanding restaurant in town, but what they lack is size is made up in taste. Chiquita’s is … More Chiquita’s Corner

Margarita’s Cantina

Even after several years of blogging about restaurants, it seems that Margarita’s Cantina slipped through the cracks. This Tex Mex restaurant has been a longtime social destination, known for its libations, live music, and enchiladas. Located at Douglas and Hillside, the large and brightly painted building is easy to spot from the street. The inside has the look … More Margarita’s Cantina

Gorditas Durango

When I am in the mood for a new authentic Mexican restaurant, I always start my search in the north-central part of town. The area bounded by Waco, 9th, Broadway, and 29th streets holds a treasure trove of street tacos, menudo, mole, and salsas just waiting to be consumed. My target on this day was … More Gorditas Durango

2014 Lenten Special- Our Lady of Perpetual Help Meatless Mexican Meal

Ah Lent,  that special time of year when Catholics and some other Christian denominations must abstain from meaty goodness on Fridays. It also means that dining options can be somewhat limited if you are looking for something more than cheese pizza and salads. While many restaurants do a good job offering meatless specials during Lent, at Our … More 2014 Lenten Special- Our Lady of Perpetual Help Meatless Mexican Meal

Molinos

Frida’s was a small Mexican restaurant that Steph and I sadly discovered right before it closed back in 2010. It was one of our first dive experiences and got us hooked on “off the beaten path” dining. Their piratas and salsa bar were things of beauty. Luckily the owners of Fridas are back in the … More Molinos
