I had a very good vegetarian burrito. Just the right thing after dropping my car off at car service center. Everything was fresh and the service was fast and pleasant.

I originally had a craving for Sushi but I figured I would give Mexican another chance. Third time’s the charm I guess. After several false starts, I’ve finally arrived at Amigo’s Taco Shop. I’ll admit this will be one of the easiest reviews to make, and it’s a Saturday, so perhaps that’s to be expected.

Amigo’s is so simple; it’s practically written in Basic (yeah, that just happened). Solid wood chairs were apparently lifted from an elementary school, in solid red to prove it. Various props looked probably borrowed from a thrift store including miniature cacti and sombreros. Staffed (currently) by four very attractive women with smiles and pleasant attitudes.

It works.

There is cheap and there is simple and then there is authentic. Amigo’s feels like that corner café in a small village that serves the greatest food in the country, and you’d have missed it if you blinked while driving from one large city to another.

I am recommended the Burrito Supreme, which I add to a $12 combo plate. The two sides, mexi-rice and mexi-fries, are scooped onto a plate from warming buckets. Warming buckets. The burrito, about as thick as my neck, is made to order, shoehorned with beef, beans, salsa, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream. It’s delivered in less than three minutes, another reason why this place is so successful at lunchtime.

Compared to fast food varieties, Amigo’s feels and tastes like it was made, not manufactured. Given current events with larger chains, I’m confident the beef in Amigo’s is real and not comprised of inedible appendages, good intentions, and salt. That being said, I think the two sides could use a dash of spices. The burrito does make up for the slightly bland flavor of the sides. For the price, you get a heaping amount of food which is delivered with the speed of…hmm…would it be politically inappropriate to make a Looney Tunes reference using a racially inappropriate character?

I get a can of pop, not a tall glass of ice and syrup-flavored water. Amigo’s shouldn’t be here. It should be in a mall in a larger city where this quality of product is not nestled and hidden away outside of the city center, 500 feet from railroad tracks. And yet, it is also perfectly located, slightly away from competition but flanked on every side by businesses desperately looking for a good meal for lunch. If I wasn’t living half way across the city, I could see it being a regular joint. Alas, there is a Taco Del Mar a block away. Been there once…haven’t been back.
If you can find a parking spot and come at a time where it’s not insanely busy, Amigo’s is a definite recommendation. It doesn’t try to be much and the result is something far greater than it thought. Places like the African Café and Kalo Donair should take a hint from Amigo’s.

This is a great alternative to fast food in the same price range. Recommend the chicken soft tacos and enchiladas...oh and the Chichis!!
