Restaurant Review: Don Lalo’s 11/20/2014

Review of Don Lalo’s, 912 Gilmer St, Sulphur Springs, TX

I’m a huge fan of Tex-Mex.  This was my first visit to DL’s, and I was not let down. Being our First Visit, We went with traditional fare, cheese/steak.chicken enchiladas, beans, rice.

Firstly, I think the salsa and chips set the stage for the entire meal.  Lets face it, the chips and salsa is an expected part of the Tex-Mex experience.   I loved the salsa.  Cilantro was in full effect, bright tomato taste, some spicy heat.  I would not have been shocked to find tomato plants growing somewhere close.  The chips thin, crispy, and well seasoned.

Atmosphere:  I like the setting.  Walking up to the building you can see people inside clearly enjoying themselves.  I also like the subdued lighting, dare I say coziness of the interior.   We could hold a conversation with each other, a feature not available at other Tex-Mex joints in town.

Sweet Tea Review: Just OK.  Missing the true tea flavor. Sweetness allowed to overpower somewhat.

Plate Temperature Review: Hot!

I will be back, and I am anxious to try some of the less ‘traditional’ offerings.
