Dear taco shack,
I went in today and got 2 tacos. The price was good, ingredients were fresh, but please do something about your cilantro. If you're going to put it in your tacos, ask the customers first if they like it or not; people either love or hate that taste. Also, I asked for my tacos to be hot, but got them bland. Anyways, my main concern is the cilantro as I've had this discussion before with people about Mexican restaurants. Ask customers if they want it or no please.
Everything else was good.
Im Mexican and I just wanted to say that the food from this Taco Shack is not Mexican. I was walking along Cornwall with a friend from Colombia and we noticed that there was a new Taco Shack. My friend asked me If I wanted to go in, which we did but immediatly left. It didn't take me more than 2 seconds to realize that what they sell is NOT Mexican food.
I have to admit that I didn't try any food so I can rate it. I just wanted to say that this is not Mexican food so stop saying that it is because it so not. Even that Red Burrito in Commerical Drive does not offer Mexican food. It is Tex-Mex or some kind of combination but it is not mexican either.
In fact, so unfortunate that it imspired me to open an account here at dinehere.ca!
Found a referral to the new restaurant on a Vancouver blog, and since it is a few blocks from home decided to give it a try.
When my guy and I got there, there was one person being served. We were next in line, but the young guy working there saw two cute girls walking in, turned to us and said "I think they're next." Turned to them and said, "Can I take your order?" Can't fault the guy for trying ;) Anyway, a little annoyed but in no rush so didn't worry about it.
Then another client walked in, asked if we were in line. Yes. So when the guy working was done serving his cuties, turns to the OTHER guy and takes the order. I said "We were next," to which he replied, "Sorry...I'll help this guy first now." Was a lot more annoyed by then but waited it out...wanted to give the food a chance because this was only one employee.
While waiting, another customer already dining offered to the owner, "You should have the girl working here stop touching her hair so much when she serves food." He asked, "Too much?" "ANY amount is gross!" he replied. So the owner walked off.
Truth be told I was impressed with the food - until the second last bite. Took a bite of the burrito and something hard and crunchy was in there. Spit it out, and found either some melted clear plastic or perhaps clear masking tape, or the wrapping from the meat...something big and not food was in the middle of the food, anyway, and I guess that was the last straw. I spit it out and decided that it was time to write a review so that others are warned of the lack of cleanliness and service.
I wanted to have it work out, but unfortunately have to call this a DO NOT VISIT review. Suggest trying Andale's on Davie or Broadway for real Mexican eats.
