Panaderia Y Taqueria Lili
Parking was easy, in a strip mall. Parked right up front.
This place is a bakery/restaurant.I came i n right before normal folk eat dinner. It wasn't busy, just one other customer at the time, and one came in before I left. The place itself is no frills, order at the counter, and grab yourself a drink from the cooler. I wasn't talked to when i came in so I just sat down. When they looked at me I went to the counter and got a menu to look over. When i was ready, I grabbed a can of modelo from the cooler, and placed my order. They weren't strong on English, but understood me just fine, when they were paying attention. The service was ok, such an awkward experience for me. They offer a variety of baked goods, which was in a display case beside the counter.
They don't have a bar here. I got a Modelo from the cooler, it was cold and delicious.
I ordered Flautas: 4 chicken, with rice, and refried beans.
Flautas were ok, not the worst ever, but far from the best. The chicken inside was dry-n-chewy tough, and no amount of salsa was bringing these puppies back from the desert.
The refried beans were creamy and delicious. Probably the highlight of the whole trip.
The rice was fluffy, but on the dry side of town.
I was brought out two types of salsa, which looked like it may be reused. I really don't know for sure.
The dark salsa was a chipotle style, hot, but chipotle is nasty.
The orange/yellowish citrusy flavored one had a nice kick and was really good. Another highlight of the trip.
I ordered two tacos to try them as well. A chorizo and an al pastor.
Chorizo was serviceable, nothing special here, and was on the dry side again.
The al pastor was ok, again, dry, jeeze!!!
The best thing to do is load up on the salsa and give them time to rehydrate. I suspect I wasn't given the freshest of meats.
I suggest you order a pound of a meat, salsa it up, mix in beans, mix in rice, and just make it a slop tray. I'm pretty sure it will be delicious.
BEST authentic Mexican food around!
Cheese enchiladas are attractive & delicious. Real Mexican sodas - you can get one from the cooler. Watch out for the green ultra spicy condiment! There is tv in Spanish & environment is informal. Person at register did not speak English, I do not speak Spanish - but we communicated ok.
My husband loves the pambazos here since they remind him of home. I ordered a few shrimp items in the past and more than once it smelled like it was bad. Good meat choices for tacos etc
Small place, but great food. Service also great. Be careful, though. Even the mild sauce leans to the hot side! Thank God the server warned me ahead of time. Prices very reasonable.
