Mexican Restaurant
$$
“PDG = Pretty Damn Good. I've had a lot of margaritas, the good and the bad. So I know a great one and the one I had here made with Mescal instead of Tequila was damn good. The tortilla chips I ordered with salsa were a bit over cooked. And I've had better Chicken Tinga by my own hands but the Chicken Tinga burrito was still very good. And the Frijoles Charros were lovely. ”
