Tabasco Tex Mex Rockville: Don't Bother!

RockvilleFoodie | Jun 25, 2008 09:19 AM

From the greasy chips to the unforgivable store bought tortillas, the food is not worth the high prices. I was excited to try this new Tex Mex place which is closer to home then Rio Grande Cafe. I placed an order for carry out that included chicken fajitas and burritos. The meat in the fajitas was overcooked and arrived on an undercooked, almost raw and inedible bed of green peppers and onions. Accompanying them was a side of beans and "mexican rice". The beans were passable but the rice was abysmal, akin to yellow Uncle Ben's. Also included was a meager portion of runny guacamole, sour cream and mushy pico de gallo (the tomatoes should have been in the bin, not served to customers). I don't know what was the worst part about the meal, the overcooked meat, undercooked veg or the stale tasting store bought tortillas. I expected something comparable to Rio Grande or even El Mariachi (the next closest competition) but was very disappointed. I won't go on about the burrito which wasn't much better then the fajitas. In the future, I'll happily drive 10 extra minutes and wait for a table at either Rio or El Mariachi. Save your money and pass on this place.
