After biking past here for years, I finally ventured in! This little Mexican establishment is weird, ordering is done at a counter and the whole place has a cafeteria feel. Charlie and I were out after a long day of work on the house, and this meal certainly hit the spot.
We ordered chips and salsa to start, and the salsa was a weak, watery excuse for salsa. Although it provided some good heat, it still left something to be desired.
I ordered a spicy shredded chicken burrito. Overall, it was filling and quite tasty; my only compliant was that it was not spicy. Charlie ordered the special: salmon tacos and enjoyed his meal as well. Portion sizes are decent for the prices.
It's BYOB, they sell Mexican (real cane sugar) soda, they use fresh ingredients, and it's pretty cheap. To be honest, there are a lot of spots similar, but that doesn't mean Taco Riendo isn't enjoyable. The service seemed a bit slow though.
Bottom Line: If you want great Mexican food in fancy taco bell atmosphere, this is the spot. The prices and quality make this a great spot, but I'd opt forgo dine in for to-go next time.
