Nice.

Q: Are Fiesta Charra and El Burito Loco similar?

My stomach doesn't stomach Mexican very well. Actually, not at all haha.

Sure hope that, when Fiesta Charra moves out, an enterprising local businessperson sees the need to install an 18th restaurant in Oxford specializing in south-of-the-Rio-Grande cuisine, like the ever-popular refried beans and rice or, perhaps, rice and refried beans. Rolling Eyes
Yum!

Fiesta Charra was the one place I didn't get to when I was in Oxford last weekend. It's 1st on my list for my next trip back, love that place!

I've never tried Charra either; I do think El Burrito is pretty mediocre.

Plus with that name, maybe this guy will show up:

One place has rice and refried beans. The other place has refried beans and rice. How different can any of them be?
Think outside the bun! Costs much less. Wink

Went to FC tonight. The place was packed. I guess a liquor license is a ticket to riches.

I was there as well. Sorry I missed you. Good, but certainly not great, food, and a very nice atmosphere.

Precisely. I remember the first time I went to FC and found out they didn't have drinkies, I was very disappointed.

Few things beat a Sunday maragrita brunch at a run-of-the-mill Mexican place.

Yeah, when I came back to school right after I had turned 21 over the summer, I went to Charra and confidently ordered a margarita, seeing as I was a grown ass man. I felt quite foolish as I changed to a water.

Though it closed after my freshman year (2003-2004 right?) I only went to Pedros once. Hands down the worst service I had ever had. Our server was rude, our food took 45 min despite the restaurant being almost empty, and we had to walk back to practically the kitchen to get a check. I believe he received a total of $2 from a group of 5 as a tip. Never got a chance to have my perceptions changed.

For sure. I don't like frozen at all, I need that tequila flavor.

Also, the irony of you making a joke about not being manly and ending with a wink was excellent. Well played sir.

We went to Guadalajara on JPA in Charlottesville, 7+ of us nearly every Sunday for two years. Good times, unremarkable food, and large margaritas.
