Hope Your Apetite Is Big AND Spicy!

I took the wife and kids out for dinner last night.

We went to a local mom & pop home-style restaurant.

It’s a nice place. Small. Cheap. Quiet. Good food.

They have all the standard home-style cooking fare, which is listed in their printed menus.

But they also offer daily specials.

Those are listed on a printed sheet and attached to the front of the regular menu.

That’s where I noticed something usual.




WTF?!?!

Mexican?

Like “A” Mexican?

For only $6.50?!

I told the wife, “Look honey! We can finally afford that dishwasher you’ve always wanted!”

WIN!

Seriously though, WTF?

Sure, there is more than an abundant supply running around.

AND they are willing to do anything for a buck.

But when did this place become a cannibal establishment?

And why “NO SIDES”?

Do they think that you won’t have room left after eating a Mexican?

Is there nothing that compliments or goes with the taste of a Mexican?

I am pretty sure rice would work.

Or refried beans.

Or did they mean they removed the Mexican’s sides? (Like you remove the fins when filleting a fish.)

I wanted to ask the waitress what they meant, but I heard the guy at the next table order one.

He was a BIG guy.

He looked like he had already eaten a Mexican.

I figured I would wait and see if they brought Juan out on a plate.

"Excuse me, ma'am...but could you send this back? My Mexican isn't legal."

AND?!?! What did the bring out???

I must admit I prefer my Mexicans with sides; they can get a bit messy otherwise.....

So was it Steaks carved out of Manuel Uribe's ginormous thighs?

Heather said...

Bahahhahaha! Mooooog is funny!

I would ask for at least a green card with mine. So if you take it home in a doggy bag you won't get ticketed for trafficing.

Ignoring your funny completely, my favourite receipt was one time when I was doing some expense reports years ago for a bitch-dragon-whore I worked for. She'd been on a business trip and had a drink at her hotel on the last night. The printed receipt said:

BUTTFACE $4.75.

I laughed and laughed. I thought they'd figured her out instantly and left their comment on her charming personality on the receipt. Then I found out it was just a beer. How disappointing.

Mexican food is soooo yummy

ScoMan said...

I don't know that I'd trust a Mexican to wash my dishes. They don't seem like clean people, so I don't think they'd get my plates nice and shiny like I like them.

Oh yeah, I went there, political correctness be damned.

Alex said...

Oooh, just read ScoMan's comment and his disregard for political correctness trumped yours.

Do you think a Mexican would taste like tequila or beans? Just wondering...

Miss Yvonne said...

OMG, I can't believe you can't get tater tots with the Mexican! Tater tots? Pretty much the best side ever. Way better than peas. Psssh. Peas. Losers.

Pat said...

You are a sick individual. I like that characteristic in a person.

I bet you were smacking your lips on having a cream filled Mexican wiener.

WhisperingWriter said...

And now I want an enchilada.

At 11:27 at night.

Beta Dad said...

I know, Whispering Writer! I'm so tempted to walk over to my local taco shop and grab a California burrito right this minute. Better go to sleep instead.

Erin said...

I always enjoy the humor and fodder errors on menus often provide. Free entertainment at its best.

Momma Fargo said...

Coffey had to go there. LOL.They don't serve weiners. Just sayin'.

Kimi said...

When ordering a Mexican...do you order them rare, medium, or well done???

Tiffany said...

does it come with it's eyeballs? i hate when my food's looking right back at me.

Alicia said...

what?? no sides?? the horror! how can i enjoy my mexican without rice and beans?!?! blasphemy!

hiphophippie.com said...

Priceless. I really need my very own Mexican.

Lemme guess, an enchachoito thingy with extra cheese and sour cream came out. Very authentic.

Annabelle said...

I worked in a restaurant that had a salad called "the Asian". Everyone always felt awkward ordering it from me, their Asian waitress. "We're all going to get the Asians. SALAD. Er..." Just. Stop.

Busted Kate said...

Dude, I'm giving you a shout out on my post tomorrow. Hope that's cool!

The Princess of Sarcasm said...

On Tuesdays they have a 2 for 1 Mexican special. A diswasher for the wifey and a lawnmower for you! I'll bet you hit the special at the Chinese restaurant for your happy ending dessert as well....
