On Friday I had a super intense interview. 2.5 hours, six different interviewers, right in a row. Whew. So despite the fact that we had just budgeted for April and really don’t have any extra money to spend I was like, “Tacos?” My friend who lives in the Dallas area recommended this place and I have to say it was pretty great. I mostly appreciated that parking was super easy. After moving from Chicago I am always surprised when parking is so easy. It feels like I am winning some sort of prize. And guess what? There is also one of these Velvet Tacos in actual Chicago. So maybe I could pretend I was just there?
Here’s the Sitch
Place: Velvet Taco
Order: 5 Tacos, an order of tots, and cokes. My favorite taco was the Cuban Pig, pulled pork, ham and bacon with cheese and pickles, but I think the tots were my favorite menu item.
Price: Around $4 a taco, total for 5 tacos and tots and drinks it was 32 bucks.
Atmosphere: The people were super nice. It is an order at the counter and they bring it to you type of situation. It wasn’t super crowded when we were there because we ate early around 5 so it was easy to find seating. Not sure what it would be like if it was super crowded. I liked it, but I don’t know if anything about the atmosphere was super stand out. But it was good.
