Looking for a delicious, quick meal one evening, I decided to try Panchero’s Mexican Grill. I had never been there and was hoping for something warm, filling and a tiny bit spicy.
I drove there and was able to find a parking spot right in front, which is always a plus. As I walked in, I was happy to see a large, clean and festively-decorated restaurant full of tables and chairs. There was a high top table facing the large window and smaller low tables.
I walked to the large counter where the menu was prominently displayed above. As I waited in line behind a few other hungry customers, I took in the many options. I had heard the burrito was the way to go here, but since I wanted to try something just a little different, I went with the chicken quesadilla. There were also sides such as rice, beans and chips, so I decided to try some chips and queso as well.
Satisfied with my choice, I ordered and watched the woman behind the counter hand-press the big, soft tortilla in a large machine. She then smothered it with warm chicken chunks and fresh cheese. As she made it into the quesadilla, another man got my large bag of blue corn tortilla chips and warm queso ready. I noticed a few other people ordering behind me and the line was moving quickly. The smell of cooking burritos, tacos and quesadillas filled the room and smelled delicious.
When I arrived home and laid out my meal, my stomach was grumbling in response to the delicious mix of flavors. I bit into the warm, cheesy quesadilla. It was fantastic and filling, but the best part of it was definitely the warm, doughy tortilla. It was fresh and different from anything I’d ever tasted. As I dipped a few chips in the warm, spicy queso I was glad I decided to order this extra. The chips were warm, crisp and salty, and the queso was not only great on the chips, but also enhanced the flavor of the quesadilla.
