HAPPY TAKE ON TEX MEX
FOOD’S COMMENDABLE, BUT MARGARITAS OLÉ!
AFTER RECENT CONSUMPTION and talk of authentic Mexican, I found myself longing for the cheesier Tex Mex. As the Happy Mexican has just recently opened its second location, the timing was right for a visit.
Well, it was right. I wish I’d timed my Saturday visit in the late afternoon instead of lunch, so that I could have taken advantage of the tasty margaritas they serve up at a special price on Saturdays. But drinking a massive margarita at noon is just flying too close to the sun. If it carried a warning, it would say “Danger: May lead to napping and/or wasted afternoons.”
So I settled instead for an indulgence
The Happy Mexican’s carnitas are tender pork tips and the fixings. Wash it down with a margarita; there are several varieties available.
The Happy Mexican is at 6080 Primacy Parkway in East Memphis.
