Los Pollitos II - wtf?

cjd260 | Apr 22, 2007 06:02 PM

Just had my first (and last) experience with Los Pollitos II. It's been argued that delivery Mexican might just not be a good idea, but there's more wrong with this place than that. In brief, a list:

(a) I've tried ordering for delivery a few times. The first time, I was told there was a $15 minimum, but I was alone, so I passed. The second time, I had two friends, but they said the minimum for delivery was now $30. This time, they said $20. With my two friends, I took that as an invitation to order.

(b) Ordered at 7:04, was told it would be 25-30 minutes. Called to check on the order at 7:47, was told 10 minutes. Food arrived at 8:35.

(c) Four items between us. The grilled chicken burrito was covered in (pretty good) guacamole, chopped onions and lettuce, but the burrito itself reminded me of one I had in Des Moines once in my youth: white chicken, white rice, greyish beans, gooey cheese. The mole sauce in the mole poblano was good, but the dish itself was mostly bone. A plain quesadilla seemed both undercooked and congealed. And the beef super taco was, honestly, pretty good. So maybe get the beef super taco if you're somehow forced to order from there.

Okay, that's it. I'm done. Anyone have any better ideas for Mexican delivery?
