Fish Taco in Cabin John

Just Visiting | Nov 3, 2013 04:42 AM

It was close. We were tired. Decided to give it a try. Small, nice decor. You order at the counter, take a number card to your table, and await your food. There are indeed three fish tacos on the menu - no fish identified, but your choice of fried, blackened, or grilled. $12 bucks for two. The food is tasty but the portions are very skimpy. The fish couldn't have been more than 2 x 2 inches. The side that is included consists of black beans and Mexican rice or what I think of a "restaurant Mexican rice" as I've never encountered this dish anywhere in Mexico. All tacos are flour. No choice of corn. Appear to be freshly made. The tortilla chips are not freshly made. They have Negro Modelo on draft. That made us happy.

Basically, just OK. Were it not for convenience, I wouldn't go there. I suspect that the dearth of restaurants in this area will give it an extended life, much as has been the case for Wild Tomato. High hopes for a place owned by the owners of Persimmon have been dashed. It is mediocre with bizarre service - the teenagers are not trained and have bad attitudes. And the food is meh. But it survives because there are so few restaurants in this area.
