Muchas Gracias Reviews
Cheap Mexican food that's great when you're hung over. Mar 27, 2008
You wake up the next morning, your first thought is "I drank too much, I feel like crap" you look at the clock. It's only 1:30 in the afternoon but you have to get out of bed, you're a go-getter. Your next thought should be "Muchas Gracias.. mmmmm"
For starters: free carrots and onions soaking in jalapeño juice with cilantro. Now you might be thinking "that's not what my gut needs first thing in the afternoon after an extended boozing session". Ok so you're an amateur, and want to start a little more traditionally.
Chorizo burrito, a massive burrito stuffed full of egg, cheese and Mexican sausage. For about $3 you can't do any better.
Now the other thing thats great about "Muchas" is it's open 24/7 so when you stumble out of the bar at 3am you can pile in your friend's car and get an Oregon Burrito.
What is an Oregon Burrito you ask? It's meat, cheese, potato and salsa.
I can't do it justice, get drunk, eat one and appreciate.
You might walk in and say something like "What?!?!? no Nachos?!?"
That's because they call them chips. You want beef? Order carne asada chips. Chicken, get the pollo asada.
I capitalized the "N" in Nachos because it deserved it, you read that right, not a typo.
Want something sweet to wash it down with, grab a horchata. It sounds like something you'd try to avoid catching but trust me, you want this. Traditional Mexican rice water with sugar and cinnamon, delicious.
On a budget, perfect, massive burritos for 3 bucks.
If you travel around you'll see similar places with different names, most are just as good. A few even have nearly identical menu layouts.
For example: La Conga in Corvallis, find an OSU student who hasn't been there.
