In traveling throughout Mexico for years, I know that each State presents it fare differently using ingredients from their particular area. But a taquito is always a corn tortilla filled with shredded beef or chicken then deep-fried and presented in a variety of ways. On a whim, I decided to stop at Corona Village for lunch, and ordered a "taquito" combo meal. It was not a flauta (open-ended flour tortilla wrapped flute filled with shredded meat & deep-fried) which I expected, but a chimichanga (flour tortilla filled with shredded meat, wrapped like a burrito enclosing both ends then deep-fried until golden) cut into four pieces. Surprise -- not what I ordered! The middle was over-filled with cheese and some shredded dry chicken. The ends were too overcooked and crisp to eat. And, the watered-down salsa was heavy with oregano plus a piece of onion or tomato here and there. The rice was flavorful and moist plus the refried beans were creamy, although I ordered the rancho beans. The chips were warm, not homemade but from a institutionalized bag. I went there thinking it was an authentic mom & pop restaurant but was sadly disappointed. If you want to spend money on food you can make at home by opening a can, then spend away. So sorry I didn't drive a bit further to the new Cafe' Ole' on Eagle Road and give it a try.
