Carne Asada Fries @ The Taco Spot

My girlfriend recieves a magazine and inside there is a list of restaurants in the Los Angeles area that are supposed to be good, and are known for a certain dish. I look at this section because I am always interested to see if there is anything that will catch my interest. The other night I was reading this section of the magazine, and saw "the best CARNE ASADA FRIES in town!" This automatically caught my attention, and as I continued to read I learned the location of these fries. The place was called Taco Spot in Ealge Rock on Colorado. A few days later my girlfriend and I were in Pasadena and decided to go and try the Taco Spot. We walked in it looked like a aright type of place that could create good carne asada fries. I walked to the counter to order and I asked the guy working the register, "what was in the carne asada fries?" He told me there was carne asada, cheese, beans, and guacamoleeee." Everything sounded good until he said "guac-a-molie." When I heard how he pronounce guacamole,my girlfriend and I should of turned around, walked out, and went to Alberto's to have carne fries, but we didn't. We decided to be open minded and not judge a restaurant by it's employee. We ordered the carne asada fries, ate the carne asada fries, and came to the conclusion, we would never go there again. On a scale from one to ten, we gave them a 4. I also asked the guy at the counter if the beans were good, he saind he had never tried them before. I have also came to the conclusion that the magazine where I recieved the informatin about this particular restaurant and it's famous fries does not know what they are talking about.
I am sorry I have written so much, but I had go get a few things off my chest. I am curious to know if anyone knows of the Taco Spot, and if they agree/disagree with me.
