Bouquet of Flores

We were determined to have a relaxing Labor Day weekend and we definitely succeeded.  On Friday, we headed to Flores Mexican Restaurant on recommendation from my friend, Linda.  When we arrived, we got one of the last parking spots and we told there was a 40 minute wait.  We decided it was worth it and waited in the very crowded lobby.  When we were seated, we could tell that it was busy throughout the restaurant.  We still had time for happy hour margaritas so we got those first.  The margaritas were just okay, but still tasted fine on a hot night.

They served us chips and salsa, but we decided to order some queso, too.  The chips were giant, but could have used a little more salt.  The salsa had good flavor, without being too spicy.  The queso was a yellow queso and again had good flavor and was not spicy at all.

Despite being incredibly busy, our meals came very quickly.  I love steak tacos so I chose Joe's Tacos with the fajita beef.  They were delicious.  I loved the homemade tortillas, creamy guacamole, and amazing steak.  The rice and beans weren't bad either.  The plate was huge and on a different night, I definitely could have split it.  Mike picked the chimichangas and on our waitress's recommendation, he also got the fajita beef.  His was half covered in verde sauce and half covered in queso.  It was also huge and tasty.  We were very happy with our dining experience and definitely plan to go back again soon.
