Mexican Cuisine

My partner and I both enjoy Mexican food. We have three favorite Mexican restaurants: Taco Bell for quick but delicious meals, El Mocaljetes (in Palmetto) for very inexpensive Mexican cuisine, and Carmelita’s for more elegant Mexican dining. When we stop at Taco Bell, we each have a traditional order: Dimitris orders two shredded chicken burritos and I order a spicy tostado. We are both given free senior drinks: I drink lemonade; Dimitris usually drinks root beer (with always a refill before we leave). The cost at Taco Bell is $5.54, which we split. When we are more serious about Mexican food, then we head to Carmelita’s where we usually split a Mexican pizza and drink water. If we are celebrating, we might have a Margarita. If not, the bill is $16.00, including a $3.00 tip. When we dine at El Mocaljetes where the tacos, enchiladas, and tostados are $1.00 each on Monday nights, we splurge and leave a “big” tip. How fortunate we are to have three delicious South of the Border restaurants available in our “neck of the woods.”
