May Theme Day (City Exchange)

Hola! This South of the Border window dressing could be in Mexico...Acapulco, Cancun, Mazatlan, Mexico City? Si?


I've never been to Mexico, but lots of amigos around Selma, Alabama enjoy authentic Mexican cuisine at El Ranchero Restaurant on Broad Street. It's one reason downtown fills up with cars on weekend nights, because a Taco Bell it is not!

The fajitas, chimichanga, taco salad, enchiladas, refried beans, rice, rice and more rice and especially the tortilla chips with goat cheese dip are a delightful change of taste from Southern fried everything. They even have Mexican shrimp dishes.

Please visit other City Daily Photo Blogs participating in May Theme Day, and Adios!

Gerald England said...

I've never been to a Mexican restaurant!

Dsole said...

oh what a funny pic, very colourful!

RamblingRound said...

Hi Kate, I did visit St. Paul, and I love your Mexican restaurant photo.

Gerald, the first real Mexican restaurant I ever went to was in San Antonio, and Taco Bell was never the same!

dsole, this really is a funny fellow, huh? I suppose he's a Red Hot Chili Pepper!

Victoria said...

Hmm...now you have me craving Mexican food! Great twist on today's theme.

Interesting photograph. I think we all have a craving for Mexican food. My mother loved extremely hot peppers.

My Theme Day portrait is of the "Peashooter" and the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Hope you like flying.

It seems like Mexican flavor is all the rage on daily photo theme day!

Thanks for the pic!

isabella said...

Now, see what you've done - I'm craving chicken fajitas right now ;-)

RamblingRound said...

After reading your comments, now I'm craving Mexican tonight. But I already have an oriental menu in progress - chicken teriyaki.
Thank you all for stopping by.
