Had lunch today at a new place, Burrito Loco, in Mooresville, NC -- I think it's owned by the same folks who own the Prickly Pear. Located on Hwy 150 near Iredell Rd., in a strip mall; it's a couple of doors down from a tienda, in a location that used to house another Mexican restaurant.
Burrito Loco is a different feel and mood from the Prickly Pear -- the menu features tacos, burritos, and quesadillas -- good street food. Pretty straightforward and not as fancy as PP (and no bar, either) -- but the tacos were good! Nicely seasoned, on good, soft tortillas, with authentic crumbled cheese on the top. Each order has two substantial tacos, along w/chips and salsa for something like $5 or $6. A great bargain.
They've only been open for three weeks, and so the place isn't decorated yet. I took my food to go -- so I can't speak to the quality of the service.
Nothing fancy -- but the place was a pleasant surprise for me. Would love to hear what others think.
