For our entrees, we shared a mix of dishes. There are Maria’s famous fried tacos (of course!) in both ground beef and fish taco varieties, a spinach quesadilla and a steak fiesta salad bowl.
The fish tacos were hands-down every grown-up’s favorite. Eli, my dad and I all enjoyed them, with their crazy crisp shells, grilled tilapia, crunchy cabbage slaw and a zippy chipotle lime dressing. I think fish tacos always need a little zip, so I appreciate a good sauce. But I hate when they wind up too saucy or extra cheesy. These tacos weren’t like that. They had just the right sauce-to-fish ratio for a balanced bite. The kids, however, were all over the fried beef tacos. They also came in the crispy fried flour shells but were filled with simple ingredients: seasoned ground beef, cheese and lettuce. The classic combination almost any kid will love.
