El Cid II

Imagine all that you want in a Mexican restaurant. Just authentic enough that the menu items are in Spanish but more flavorful and less greasy than your corner taqueria. Out of a neighborhood full of Mexican food options, El Cid is the place you want to take your family and friends. They will not be disappointed. Exhibit A: The mango margarita. It’s hotter than a polar bear in hell out there but all you need is a sweet dash of mango margarita on your tongue to make you smile. The staff knows this and they will happily bring you another, little pushers that they are. Exhibit B: The patio out back, a must during the summer. They even have a cantina for that not-quite-at-the-beach feeling. Exhibit C: The food, of course. It won’t exactly knock your socks off but it shouldn’t be hard to find what you want. Tacos come with various fillings including carne asada, fish, potatoes, or guacamole. The burrito de arrachera (that’s skirt steak) will fill your belly with all kinds of yumminess. There are seafood dishes too, if you’re into that kind of thing.
