There's nothing fancy about Taco Rico Tex Mex Café or the mini strip mall it's nestled in. But this tiny, quant neighborhood spot serves a wide variety of flavorful Tex-Mex items for a friendly price. The menu offers an abundance of everything you'd expect: enchiladas, tacos, burritos, fajitas, and tortillas. The steak and chicken combo fajita fares well with restaurant regulars, as does the fiesta platter with a chicken enchilada, a steak quesadilla, jalapeño poppers, and taquitos (crisp taco rolls stuffed with chicken). The kitchen often runs out of fried ice cream. But there's always the satisfaction of a banana empanada (stuffed pastry) with vanilla ice cream, or sopapillas, cinnamon sticks drizzled with honey. The sangria is homemade, and you might find a beer you've never heard of. Low prices draw in lots of students, who can receive a discount with the eatery's Student Advantage Discount Card. If you have to visit the little restroom, which is out back, be sure to ask for the key.
