Crack in Loredo’s chimichanga’s

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

There is a new Mexican bakery next to Woodman's on the east side. It's a fantastic bakery and they are now selling lunch and dinner items. I've yet to try those, but given the quality of the baked goods, I can't wait. Unfortunately, as I type this, I can't think of it's name. It's not in the "eats" section either. It should be.

I have mostly had the baked goods from Pan y Pan, which are great, but the chicken burrito I had was also very tasty. Good prices too. I had a little chat with the folks running the place, really nice people, they moved up here after about 20 years in Chicago. They talked up their al pastor - although they were out the night I was there they insisted I had to try it sometime.

Thanks. I couldn't find it when I did the search.

I love laredos.
I tried La Mestiza last week and agree, hands down, but in town.

i'm not sure about even mentioning Tex Tubbs Taco palace and "mexican food" is even appropriate. Tex Tubbs reminds me a lot of CHI-Chi's ... awful, tex mex food

its been a while since i've had la mestiza..but both times were really good. if you're looking for somewhere good, hit up antojitos on cottage grove. very authentic, very delicious. i live on the north side, and there's a latino market near culvers which has good carnitas tacos and tamales..they have other food everyday as well.

I went to the Odana La Mestiza last night, and it once again confirmed its place as my favorite in town. The lamb with chile pasilla was astoundingly good, as was the shrimp ceviche tostadas.

As for Laredo's, I could take it or leave it. I like Mi Cocina (aka Laredo's Middleton) for a quick meal, but my last experience at an actual Laredo's was a mess of terrible service and just OK food. It's still better than Pedro's, however.

I'll second this.

I was in Mexico last month and there's nothing like a week in Mexico to make you really sick of mexican food. Even reading this thread makes me a little queasy. Going back down in 2 weeks, might have to pack a lunch. In a couple months I'll be ready for some mole.

Is that why they're always trying to get up here?

Tried Burrito Drive, damn good but it seamed like a drive through type place; no sauce unless you put it on.
I had fish tacos and my partner had a chimi. Both great but I was most impressed with the person waiting on us! She made sure we were happy with everything including the brewers game but non-the-less, it felt like a take-out place . We’ll go there again but the chimi’s @ lorado’s rule. Btw, I won the chainsaw fight…I now have two wifes ! jkjkjk

I saw a Loredo's banner in that strip mall across from Hilldale (by McDonalds).
