Urban Taco

So the fiance and I just tried Urban Taco tonite. We consider ourselves foodies and went to this new "hot" spot hoping for a new great place to eat as it's close by to our home. We got the chips and salsa and salsa trio to start. Chips appeared to be cut from premade corn tortillas then deep fried. Thick and crispy in nature and not bad though not definitely homemade. The salsas.... guacamole dip... tasted bland, needed more seasoning such as garlic perhaps and salt and appeared to be like a green past. 2nd salsa was the mango... bland, though with good mango flavor and not much else. Last salsa probably the best of the bunch. Corn and black bean salsa. Corn appeared to have nice grilled marks indicated it wasn't canned, mixed nicely with a standard black bean salsa. As far as entrees we just had some Carne(beef) tacos and I had an additional tuna taco. Beef tacos were of the steak variety cut up of course in small pieces in a standard small corn tortilla. Little to no cilantro and onions, a courtesy small dose of what appeared to be salsa though not evident in the overall taste of the taco. Overall, very bland, little to no seasoning and needed a lot more cilantro and grilled onions. Tuna taco a bit better though overall not worth the price. The atmosphere though was quite nice in Mockingbird Station. Perhaps these tacos would've been a better value at 2 dollars a pop vs 3.50 a piece that we paid. For the money we always enjoy going to Maple Ave to La Pasainita's for our favorite tacos in Dallas. Fuel City highly touted by many... IMO just ok. Plus our digestive tracts didn't do so well. Granted I'm quite sure that the rent at Mockingbird Station necessitates the higher cost but for a much better value as well as tastier options please go to your local non "Dallas'' type of restaurants on Maple or elsewhere. Scott at may direct to you much better options. Your dollars and taste buds would appreciate you. Just one guy and gal's opinion. Enjoy!
