I have a friend who requested a review of Rigoberto’s and over beers I agreed to go with him. I agree to a lot of things over beers. Stupid ballet tutu. I selected the Carne Asada Taco, the Carnitas Taco ($2 each), and couldn’t resist going for 3 rolled tacos with sour cream for $2.80. TACO TOWWWWN!
First I tried the Carne Asada. After a couple of bites I somehow was flooded with memories of all those womp rats that I used to bullseye in my T-16 back home. The “steak” was about as consistent as chunky ground beef.
The Carnitas taco was much better. Plenty of fatty pork piled high between two soft corn tortillas. I was pretty pleased with the carnitas but it isn’t good enough for me to go back. Well, if I happened to be over near the 3rd street Rigoberto’s at some random time of night and nothing else is open, and I’m drunk…sure, I’d gladly go back.
The “rolled tacos”, or Costco Taquitos for everyone else, were dry on the inside, soaking wet from the pile of sour cream on the outside, and completely covered with cheddar. Save your $2.80.
I’m glad to report that I have not had any unscheduled bowel movements after eating at the 3rd street Rigoberto’s. I will also admit, that for $2, the Carnitas taco was a healthy portion and is worth a try if you get suckered into going.
