Bolivian Restaurant Review: Guacamole TexMex, Santa Cruz, Bolivia
by Dale Bond
(Santa Cruz, Bolivia)
Finally got to go today. Had lunch with my wife and daughter. The place itself was much more contemporary inside than you would expect for a Tex Mex. Black shiny tables with black chairs and white chairs. Walls were pretty bare (yet colorful) except for the signature wall....grab a marker and leave your name (when in Rome).
They do have a bar and a big screen tv.
First thing we were impressed with free chips and salsa...a rarity here.
Menu prices range from 30 Bs to 60 Bs.
Tacos...burritos...nachos...fajitas...salads...and a shrimp in garlic white wine butter sauce?...and ribs.
They do have what appeared to be a Family Platter that had some of everything on it more or less...180 Bs..could feed three-four.
Prices were on removable bright orange stickers...(subject for changing).
Second thing we were impressed/surprised with....fountain soda/free refills...again, a rarity.
We ordered the fajitas, soft tacos and the shrimp. The fajitas and tacos were good; not spectacular Tex Mex...all could have used more "pop" in the flavor...same as the beans and rice...but good none the less.
I just realized that neither were accompanied with cheese of any kind.
The shrimp was just as described; it came with large thin croutons....my daughter loves shrimp.
Third thing that impressed us....they brought us a free helado frito...just doing good business...you know "tell a friend" kinda thing...again, a rarity here.
Overall, we were happy enough to plan a return visit....not an amazing place; but we always appreciate strong effort and local establishments.
