Fresco Tortilla comes to LI

Having been a fan of Fresco Tortilla in NYC before I stopped working there 6 or so years ago, I was excited to see that it has opened a place in Mineola, mere blocks from my house.

I've tried it a half dozen times so far. It's inconsistent, sometimes too salty, but still nicely reminiscent of the original (at least the 42d St place) and quite satisfying.

The steak for the tacos, quesadillas, etc is nicely marinated (but once it was way too salty). Favs are the steak taco, jack cheese and steak (or chicken) quesadilla. The rice is very disappointing, dry and crunchy.

Anyway, there isn't much to chose from around here for mexican take out, especially that delivers.

Fresco Tortilla, 76 Roslyn Rd, Mineola. 516-877-1918.

As they say on the menu "Mexican food is rated No. 1 in ethnic food". Not sure about the authority for that, but I like it.....
