After the game on Saturday, we visited with Candi for a few minutes. It was an AWESOME bonus to the win and we were so glad to see her. After that, we were really hungry and ready to try Taco Lucha. It's the sister restaurant to So Long Saloon, located between So Long and the Lou in Aggieville and was opened last November. As you can guess from the name, they serve Mexican food.
Before you start ranting about how you can't believe we didn't eat at So Long, calm down! They serve the famous black bean raspberry chipotle dip at Taco Lucha as well. We debated whether or not we needed two orders for six people. At the rate we inhaled this one, we probably could have taken care of two! Jon couldn't even stop dipping for me to take a picture.
You can make this dip at home, but it is the very best at the restaurant in the piping hot skillet.
With the black bean dip, the group tried a few drinks. We heard good things about the margaritas. Anne said it was good but not life changing. There were tons of margs to try! Jon had a Mexican summer beer which we all quickly agreed had way too much tequila. Yes, that is possible.
For our meal, the table was split between the special and the tacos. The special was written on a chalkboard door outside and received mixed reviews. Jon's didn't have enough meat filling and too much tortilla. Ashley didn't like the green sauce but loved the cheese. Anne didn't like cheese but did like the green sauce. (I think I got that right!)
The tacos were the hands down winner at our table. Erica, Lauren and I tried six different varieties, and while spicy, they were very good. Perfect for after a football game.
Staying true to the classic funky vibes at So Long Saloon, the atmosphere and music are totally fun. The bar is ornate and awesome, and all the waitresses were wearing purple for game day! They have a large patio, so try to go soon. I think the 45 minute wait will easily double when they lose all those tables on the patio to the changing seasons!
