We now have our second reader review. This one was sent in by my friend James and he included a couple pictures as well. I believe James is the one that told me about Las Barcas about a decade ago.

The lemon's trying to escape
I went to Las Barcas restaurant on Saturday afternoon at 2:30pm. I ordered a taco & enchilada comination plate, my wife got the machaca burrito, and my mother got the chicken tostada. All three were very good! I used to live about a block away from Las Barcas and I would phone in orders and walk down and pick them up (usually the chicken tostada, which back then was less than $4.00). I love the chips and salsa there too -- the salsa is probably the best I've tasted. This time I tried to figure out if their salsa has vinegar or Mexican oregano in it, and thought I detected the latter. The food leaves little to be desired, unlike many run-of-the-mill combo plate Mexican places. I think they deserve an extra "Speedy" for the salsa & chips too.
I'd give them four Speedys:
Thanks for the review, James. We've still gotta hit Mexi-casa and Miguel Jr. sometime . . . and Blue Agave again. And some other places.
