Popped into this place for a snack yesterday afternoon. I ordered boquitos tun tun, which was nicely seasoned grilled beef on a bed of fried plaintain chips(you can get this with green bananas instead of plaintains, but this is only on the Spanish side of the menu) and an onion/tomato/bell pepper relish called chimol. The beef was good, and the plaintain chips were great. I don't know that I would order this as an entree, but it made a great snack to split between myself, my wife, and two young kids. Other menu items I saw included Honduran tacos, tripe soup(weekends), various seafood dishes, including a stew.

Located out on 301 in plain view, not far from the downtown antique district. They take plastic.

There seems to be a strong Central American influence around Smithfield/Selma, as I noticed not only Alondra's, but another place downtown called El Palacio which billed itself as Honduran/Dominican/Mexican, but was closed. I was interested in checking it out, because the decor and place settings were a lot fancier than most Latin establishments around here. It looks like they inherited the location and entire contents of a more frou frou type place that went out of business. Supposedly there's also a Honduran place called Sabor Latino on 301 in Smithfield also, but I failed to see it yesterday.
