Windsor: Angela's Drive-thru Taqueria - Have it your way - Mexican, American or fusion ... Mole, tofu tacos, vegan tortas, mango chicken with teriyaki burritos and much more

I liked it. I didn't have anything exotic though.

Tuesday, Friday and Sunday are $1. taco days. I had a mushroom taco and a carnitas taco. I chose the Mexican condiments - onions, cilantro and salsa. It can be gringoed-up by choosing tomatoes, lettuce and cheese instead.

Both were heavy on the main ingredient - lots of fresh, sauteed mushrooms and porky carnitas (no crispy bits, but good flavor) The sign at the drive thru window says it is for the customer's convenience and they are NOT fast food. It did take a while.

Inside they have a salsa bar and sell the salsas in deli containers - pineapple habanero, picante chipotle, salsa verde, avocado salsa, pico de gallo and roasted tomato.

If looking for straight-foward Mexican food, it is all there - machaca, sopes, mole, chile verde, tamal, pozole, etc.

However, they seem to accomdate all tastes. Rice is a choice of brown or Spanish.

Taco fillings include carne asada, shredded beef, pollo asado, carnitas, al pastor, chile verde, lengua, mushroom, vegetable, chicken mole, tofu, chorizo, bean, shirmp and fish.

They seem big on shrimp. There's shrimp nachos, shrimp chimichangas and anything else seems to have a shrimp option.

Then there are the fusion burritos

- Thai chicken: spinach tortilla, brown rice, pico de gallo, cabbage, peanut sauce
- Grilled veggies with feta cheese: garlic tortilla, veggies, feta cheese, black beans, brown rice pico de gallo
- Cajon (sic) snapper: Tomato tortilla, red snapper, Spanish rice, black beans, sour cream, cabbage, hot sauce,
- Fajita chicken or steak: Garlic herb tortilla, grilled vegetables, avocado, sour cream, salsa verde, Spanish rice, black beans
- BBQ Tofu: Whole wheat tortilla, tofu, veggies, brown rice, black beans, cabbbage, bbq sauce
- Mango snapper: Spinach tortilla, red snapper, guacamole, cabbage, fresh mango, black beans, brown rice
- Mango chicken with teriyaki: Whole wheat tortilla, chicken, fresh mango, guacamole, brown rice, cabbage, pico de gallo, teryaki sauce

The breakfast burritos have potatoes in them and include commuter, Texas, Cajun and veggie

They have a Mcdougal menu (no dairy) that includes veggie torta, bean burrito, veggie burrito, bbq tofu burrito, veggie taco or tofu taco.

They do seem a bit on the pricey side though. The tacos are usually $2.60 and at that price, ... too expensive for a small taco. The gourmet fusion burritos run from $8 - $10. They have some daily specials.

The only thing that wasn't so great was the strawberry aqua fresca. Some Mexican places do this. They made it from frozen sweetened strawberries. I'd try something else.

They are a pretty quick on and off the freeway at the Windsor exit. It is maybe a 1/2 mile away.

The odd thing here is it isn't a chain. It seems to be Latino and family owned. It just seems to do its own thing.
