One aspect of Pedro’s Express you will certainly love are the complimentary chips. They are made on site and some of the best chips I’ve ever had at a Mexican restuarant…..or any restaurant for that matter. Mine came out so fresh and warm; it was like towels that just came out of the dryer…. but edible. The chips were salted perfectly, provided a nice little crisp to them and weren’t greasy at all. The green and red salsas had different amounts of heat that were both delicious. I would have gladly paid for these complimentary chips had I known they were that amazing. I made it a point to compliment the staff afterwards.
On my brief visit to check out Pedro’s Express, I ordered a variety of tacos. The pictures don’t do the size of the tacos justice. They are much bigger in person. Usually on these visits, I’ll order 5-8 tacos so I can get a good gauge on the different meats available and am glad I avoided that this go around. For a fast-service Mexican restaurant, their fish tacos was one of the better ones I’ve had. It was much better that places like Alejandro’s or Lina’s. Even their lengua was tasty; it wasn’t fatty and provided a great flavor. While I wouldn’t say their al pastor was the best I’ve had, it was still really good.
Overall, it was a great visit to Pedro’s Express with one mess up. I ordered a pint of rice with my order and it finally dawned on me that I never received it. For some reason, I’m not too upset about it. It’s the first time I ordered something and forgot that I did in all my years of blogging. So either the food was that fantastic or I’m getting old………….
