This week for lunch, I decided to visit the new Los Tarascos location on Skyland Boulevard. The menu has a wide variety of choices, much

like any other Mexican restaurant, however, it also includes many new options and their own twist on classics. I decided to start with my favorite appetizer: chorizo queso dip. They serve their classic white queso topped with spicy chorizo, and it is amazing. For my main course, I decided to do steak and chicken fajitas, another classic Mexican dish. The food was very well done, and even though the selection is pretty basic, the quality is way above average. They also have a large selection of drinks, including every beer and flavor of margarita you can think of. Their happy hour specials are easily the best in Tuscaloosa. There is no better combination than a good beer and good Mexican food, and Los Tarascos is the best place in Tuscaloosa to get both of these. The food prices are fair, the food is great, and the service is quick and friendly. The atmosphere is authentic and fun, and they always have the game on. That is why Los Tarascos is one of my favorite restaurants of all time, and easily one of the best places to go in Tuscaloosa.
