I love Mexican food.
But before we get into that, I can't help but write this entry with a side comment about the similarity between all types of Mexican food (I'll allow Jim Gaffigan to comment --- see minute 5).
Although I'm no stranger to chain Mexican restaurants, I do love a good authentic meal, and that is just what I found at Patron Mexican Grill on RT 19 in Wexford (leaving the Pittsburgh zip codes for a bit).
I went to Patron last week for lunch with some coworkers; here's the run-down:
- The atmosphere is amazing --- floor to ceiling in authentic Mexican decorations. The booth that we sat in had to have been shipped in from Mexico: carved wood (each booth includes a different landscape) and hand painted.
- The meal comes with warm chips and homemade salsa, but don't eat too much before hand!
- I ordered a quesadilla, very enjoyable and well within the budget of a once a week place for lunch.
That's all for now --- short one today. I'll be busy getting ready for classes to start tomorrow!
