What are you doing on Thursdays? How does dollar tacos sound? The recently re-opened El Corral Mexican Restaurant has the deal for you. We stopped by to give them a try recently to see how they fared.
650 N Carriage Parkway Suite 110
Wichita, KS 67208
Monday – Tuesday: 11am – 9:30pm
Wednesday – Sunday: 11am – 10pm
The taco options include ground beef, chicken, carne asada, carnitas, al pastor and barbacoa. You also get your choice of corn or flour. We ordered nearly 30 of them for a football watch party.
They gave me free chips and salsa while I waited for the large order. It was LOTS of garlic and onions, but I found myself clearing out the bowl in seconds.
When they were handed to me for carryout, I took them immediately to the watch party. At first glance, they looked very rushed. They are bigger than your regular street tacos and will not win any beauty pageants.
BUT the guys loved them. They were incredibly basic but all of my buddies ate them as is without cilantro or onions. Some used the house salsa they provided but most ate them as plain meat and tortillas. Maybe it was the beers talking but the al pastor and carnitas were big hits in the crowd. I had lots of compliments and questions asking where I purchased them at.
They aren’t the most beautiful tacos you’ll find but in a house full of hungry men, they received the approval of all.
For the hell of it I went back the next day for one of their shrimp dinners. BIG THUMBS UP!
