Avoca (I’ll have a)… Avocado Margarita Please!
Let’s face it… VEIL was a FAIL – too snooty for Queen Anne and that’s saying a lot.
Laredos Grill is a welcome replacement to the hill, offering decent Tex Mex fare. Somewhere in between Azteca and Peso’s… the menu here is limited in terms of options as well as execution. The food seems to have declined in quality since Laredos opened its doors – these days it is hit or miss. You can’t go wrong with Tacos Al Pastor (think taco truck) or Enchiladas Bandaras. The larger dinner portions however, seem more ‘a la carte’ than entrée even though they come with black beans and rice.
Laredos has a fun ambiance and the space makes a good gathering place to hang out, particularly during Happy Hour – there is the standard early evening (4-6 pm) and late night (10 pm -close, they bumped it up from 9 pm recently). Beware you don’t OD on the chips and salsa! The service is attentive and friendly so your drink will always stay full. Speaking of drinks – yes, the much hyped avocado margarita (think adult smoothie) deserves its ballyhooed hype so give one a try! If you’re watching the calories, forgo the guac and order of few of the margs – your belly and your buds will be happier you did.
