Tortilla chip question - Mexican Corner NR and others

laylag | Sep 24, 2007 11:52 AM

I've been to Mexican Corner several times now and have a question for the others of yo I know frequent the place and others in NR/PC.

First time and maybe first few times, the salsa and homemade tortilla chips were gratis - a la bread at most restaurants. Last two times, waitress brought us salsas but not chips. When we asked for chips, we were advised there was a charge and you had to "order" them. One time we didn't, most recent we did as we were starving. We noticed chips on almost all other tables and many people weren't eating them. If they are charging everyone for them, why would someone bother to order them but then push them aside? Doesn't make sense right?

So, my question... what has been and is your most recent experience with tortilla chips at Mexican Corner and others. I realize the salsas are not just brought for chips but as condiments the food to come but I find this charge - albeit a nominal $2 - odd.

Also, I hate to even think it but there was a noticeable difference between the patrons at the tables w/chips they weren't eating, tables w/out chips and tables w/chips that were being eaten.

Tortilla issue aside - food was wonderful as always.
