“Bad Rap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Los Gallos has received some bad reviews, especially compared to Salsitas across the street. I have to differ. Neither of these restaurants offer genuine Tex-Mex (let alone Mexican) fare. But the food at Los Gallos was easily on a par with Salsitas; maybe a little better. Service was exceptionally quick and attentive, and I'd rate Los Gallo's margaritas as a cut above Salsitas'. Strangely, for a dollar LESS, they'll stick a smallish bottle of Corona or Dos Equis in the glass, suspended upside-down, where it gradually turns the quite good margarita into an oddly flavored beer.

Both of these restaurants feature something I've never seen at a Mexican restaurant before: in addition to the usual chips and salsa, they serve a dish of cole slaw alongside. I was even more astonished to discover that chips and cole slaw is actually pretty good - especially when the salsa has no kick whatsoever, which was the case here. I'm sure they're tailoring the food to the clientele; have you ever tried what Midwesterners call "Chili"? It's enough to make even the most disaffected Texan long to go home with the armadillo...
