Okay before y’all start, yes I’ve been a bad blogger. Supposedly you are supposed to have an editorial board, post three times a week, set a post rhythm, yada yada, muah muah muah. To that I say, pppphhhht!
I promise to do better in the future, but hey shit happens. You still love me though, right?! Don’t make me start singing the Barney song to you. I will. You. Know. I. Will.
Recently the mister and I went out to eat at a local Mexican food restaurant. To say I wish we had went somewhere else, other than Across the Street, would be the understatement of the year. Le sigh, the food and service was terrible. I have been known to devour no less than two baskets of chips and salsa, in one seating, but I guess there is a first for everything. Across the Street’s chips were stale, and I don’t even have the words to describe how sub par the salsa was.
I ordered a Coronarita and instead received a “What the heck is that” drink! Across the Street’s version of a Coronarita is a weak margarita, mixed with a little bit of Corona, and a can of Corona on the side. That’s not a Coronarita, that’s a margarita with a Corona on the side. First off, I don’t like to drink beer out of a can. Second, what happened to presentation?!
This is a proper Coronarita
Yes, I’m a Coronarita snob. Feel free to judge.
The food was also bland and flavorless, which was shocking because in the past Across the Street had a better quality of food. They were never “Hold my mule while I shout and slap my momma” delicious, but they were pretty good. I’m not sure if they got a new chef or changed their recipes, but neither my husband or I was impressed. He ordered a chimichanga and I ordered the three fish taco plate, both were sadly underwhelming. Being a Californian, I know good fish tacos. Across the Street’s are not in that category.
All in all, from the food to the unwelcoming attitude of the staff, I was not impressed with my visit to Across the Street. However, one monkey don’t stop my show, and Atlanta has many more Mexican restaurants to choose from.
Have you ever had a bad meal and/or service? Please share, I’d love to hear!
XOXO, Miss Foodie Fash!
P.S. If you like to try your hand at a Coronarita at home, here’s a fabulous recipe to try.
