Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan
Ate: Iced Tea, Chile con Queso, and Beef Enchilada (shredded beef, topped with chile gravy, sweet onions, cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese)
Art’s Rating: 3.75 / 4 jalapeños
First, the Queso. FINALLY! This had the right color (i.e., fake yellow) and consistency (i.e., not natural) and tasted just like Tex-Mex Queso. This alone is worth coming to.
It was lunchtime, so I just stuck to iced tea – but that was good, too! I had the beef enchiladas, which were fine. However, I always judge a plate not by the main food item, but the sides. The refried beans and rice were perfect. The “chile gravy” was a little odd – was hoping for a more traditional red enchilada sauce.
I will definitely come back here for margaritas and try their other items on the menu.
