El Mocaljetes

Dimitris and I love Mexican food. Our favorite Mexican restaurant in St. Petersburg is Carmelita’s which, by the way, gives patrons a free meal on his/her birthday. Our second favorite Mexican restaurant in our city is Taco Bell. Our favorite food there are Mexican pizzas, spicey tostados ($1.19), shredded chicken burritos, and quesadillas. Had we not visited friends in Palmetto who took us to their favorite Mexican restaurant, El Mocaljetes, we would never have learned of this restaurant. The first time we were taken there, we were impressed both with the food and the atmosphere and vowed to return. The second time we went, we purchased salsa and chips to take home. We also learned on that visit that this restaurant serves tacos (soft and hard shell), enchiladas, and tostados (chicken or beef) for $1.00 each on Mondays. What a bargain and what good food. The last time we availed ourselves of this inexpensive meal, I had one tostado and one enchilada; Dimitris had three enchiladas. Our bill was $5.51. I left what would usually be considered an extravagant tip on that amount as I don’t want the place to close down with this Monday night special
