La Espiga
Guadlapana
Los Tortugas(kindA small and always crowded as shit..but the freshest ingredients around)

This is not a simple question.

Gudalanpana

indeed. never been to the other place.
Posted: Apr 15, 2008 3:34 pm
 
tell me more of this Los Tortugas (i.e. location)

I've only had La Espiga for breakfast once and it was pretty damn good. Need to go back. Otherwise, GUAD.

It's great -but it's on Germantown Pkwy in a strip mall across from the Chic-Fil-A. It also goes by Deli Mexicana, check your phone book. Do not try to alter the menu. Go ahead, ask for cheese dip, I dare you.

Guadalupana sucks. Is there anybody that doesn't suck their dick?
Posted: Apr 15, 2008 4:41 pm
 
why you so salty on Guad?...it doesnt suck, not by a longshot...please tell me what they do that is sucky.

Guadalupana sucks.

Well, I don't think it sucks exactly, but I wasn't as pleased with their huevos rancheros as I was hoping. It'll do. I am just hoping they do one better in Memphis, truly. West Coast Mexican everything absolutely spoils a person.

no. sonoran. never

Porton/compadres

Don't piss pepe off at Deli Mexicana, but it's by far the best around. Crowd sucks (go at 11:30 or 1pm or at night), many of the customers suck (especially the table-holders) but Jonathon (the son/owner) is really cool and the food tastes better than any place in town except 2 or 3 high-end places.

las tortugas, fo sho, although I'm still addicted to the white cheese dip at any & all of the portons/compadres/mezcals.

Has anyone else been to Siete Madres on Jackson. I thought it was Guad's twin in a much seedier location- Always panhandlers out front.

Jonathon

He's just as rabid about "autentic Mexican cuisine" as his dad. I dare you to ask for Nachos. The Germantown douchebags are the worst, but one time I saw all of Adios Gringo eating together at a table there.

Was thinking more about Guadalupana -it really isn't any better than La Hacienda on Germantown Parkway or something else. The idea that it's more authentic (and therefore better) because it looks like you're eating in a high school cafeteria, seems to be the big draw to most people.
Posted: Apr 16, 2008 1:03 pm

ironically, that's where half the gringos are from. but yeah, the clientele at tortugas sucks. the food is great and the gringos rule!!!

i love the guad but their huevos rancheros ain't the best. i don't go there for breakfast oriented mexican, though. is it more "authentic" because they have things like tripa and lengua? i don't eat the meat so i don't know.

i'm with ya on the las tortugas and guad. those are by far the best in memphis.

i just hate drivin out to las tortugas. so goddamn far. but the food is so worth it. gah.
Posted: Apr 16, 2008 6:27 pm
 
Deli Mexicana is a pretty good place. I had no idea it had/has another name. Guad, hands down. I love that place.

Acutally, if there were a place like Polvos in Austin anywhere near Memphis I might not have moved away. Their Mole was so good I would do shots of it.

La Guadulapana. La Espiga. Haven't been to Las Tortugas.
Posted: Apr 17, 2008 10:24 am
 
What I like best about Guadalupana is that their veggie burrito isn't just beans on a tortilla. It's packed with goodness and would even make some dirtball hippie in a parking lot blush and drop his Newkie Brown, brah.

Well, usually, the best places are like that...the best Tacos in Fort Worth, TX..."Grannys" is just a side room at an auto inspection place/garage...starting at 11AM folks line up out on the sidewalk to get those tacos

i was out in E. Jesus this past sunday and tried to hit up the Los Tortugas, but it was closed. Boo!

in other questionable mexican cuisine news, I was kinda sorta strong-armed into going to the Happy Mexican this past Fri night with some drunken downtown dwellers. The tacos carnitas: not bad.

The only thing that is good about The Happy Mexican is the owner, Larry. He's a great guy- very sweet. Their food went to shit when they moved from their original location inside The Artisan Hotel on the corner of McLean and Union and changed their name. (They were once called Las Margaritas.)

The Mr. and I enjoy going into the hardcore, non-gringo/ guerro establishments where they serve truly authentic Mexican food, like the Supermarcado Mexicana on Winchester and Mt. Moriah (I think). To this date, I think we're the only whities (besides the police) who have been in there. It's cool, though. The restuarant is located in the back of a huge indoor flea market. No margaritas, but plenty of beer. It's fun to go there on a Sunday and watch soccer games. I'll admit, it does take some courage to go in there for the first time, though. It helps if you have a friend with you who speaks fluent spanish or at least some spanish.

I think Teresa should call her Mexican restaurant, "Holy Mole", after a dish Sanford made (or ate?) on an old Sanford and Son episode. God I love that show.

if i truly can get out of town (nashville) this weekend and over to memphis - i will be celebrating cinco de mayo by bringing w/ me some mole sauce!

"memphis mole" would be the mole sauce on the side + an order of gus's or uncle lou's fried chicken. you all can have a cerveza w/ that... i'll have tequila

Checked out Mayas over on Macon and its pretty damn good. Fresh salsa, guacamole and I had a really tasty ceviche tostada as well as a shrimp tostada and a tamale. Evertything was really fresh, great service and the place has some relly cool Mayan murals on the walls. They have beers but no Margaritas. Been open about 5 months. Its almost at the corner of Wells Station and Macon. Heading east down Walnut Grove take a left on Graham and then a right on Macon. There is a light at Macon and Wells Station and is next door to Lanas Market on the north side of the street. Good stuff and surely to be makin some others favorite spot before too long.
Posted: Apr 30, 2008 6:08 pm
 
i tried it out. decent tomato-y salsa, large burrito. tried the ceviche tostada but didn't really get down with it. burrito had rice & lettuce in it (?).

beans seemed all right.

beer was nice. CA had horror stories about bad service- it's a family run restaurant and i could see some teenage family members not getting the serving thing right. ah well.

i'd try it again. they serve breakfast, too.

Maya's: A+. Way better than Guad and similar prices. I thought the ceviche tostada was pretty fantastic.

well since mexican is not what I usually seek out when in other haunts (cause I can pretty much get the best of any regional mexican fare where I am) I can't say with 100% certainity; but I can say there's been more than one place on the west coast that did this, and they ALL weren't in SF

yo Beef - you are in Arizona, right? i can't remember the name of the place, but i had the greatest tacos in Tucson... just sayin...

and as for SF burritos - i don't know why, but i think that misguidedness of putting rice in a burrito originated in SF - i could be wrong, but my whole life, i've associated rice in burritos w/ SF

He's just as rabid about "authentic Mexican cuisine" as his dad.

So I finally managed to go to Deli Mexicana and while the food is great I'm asking for a burrito and nachos with cheese dip as soon as I get to the counter next time. I was perusing the menu while he was giving his spiel about fresh ingredients, authenticity, I'm a nazi when it comes to our food, etc. and He GRABS the menu out of my hand as well as the girl I'm with. Then he says that it would be great if we'd be polite enough to listen to him while he's talking. Uhh.... I can multitask asshole. I could repeat back everything you said nearly verbatim but I'm hungry and since I've read damn near every article about your place I've got a good idea what's going on. He wouldn't have done that shit to some rich suburban fuck. And when we told him we were getting it to go he went on and on about how we had to eat it as soon as possible to truly "get" what we were eating. And of course those last few soggy bites were the best. Update as soon as I get ten bucks to spend on a sandwich.
Posted: May 29, 2008 3:01 pm
 
is this the old guy? Pepe? he can be a total turn off pain in the ass. I've seen him return a rich suburban bitch's money to her and tell her to never come back. he's not discriminating when he feels dissed. i avoid him and i'm a regular.

ya ever worked retail? SO MANY times ive wanted to fucking slap a cell phone outta someones hand while they try and talk to someone AND ask you questions. I know the menu thing isnt exactly the same thing but, you know. Dude is lucky he has a business and doesnt need everyone's dime where he can say "get the fuck out, dont ever come in here again". Their food is too good to boycott because the owner is rougish...good food is good food and hard to come by in this town...plus his demeanor has the potential to provide entertainment. The fact that you bought food after he did that to you says folks are willing to put up with a lot for exceptional food.

more like "NO banjitar in the monitors", having that thing blaring in your face when you're trying to play is like trying to smell your own fart in a sewage treatment plant.

It was his son. I was too stunned to respond and I was hungry and a little inebriated. I'm also passive-aggressive hence my plan to go back even if it just gets me banned. And I've done customer service for years and my current retail job has me dealing with rich old people (my favorite group to hate) who tend to be in pain thus making them very irritable. That being said, I haven't lost my composure since I was fifteen and didn't give a fuck despite all the shit that's been dished out to me. It must be nice to be able to turn people away like that and not care about any possible repercussions. I can't recall ever seeing any advertising and it doesn't stand out from the strip mall that it's in.

i do it all the time but i'm an asshole with little regard for consequences

that guy sounds like the Soup Nazi in NYC - sort of. the soup nazi sells WAY EXPENSIVE soup from a shack storefront only during the fall and winter. you have to know what you're ordering by the time he asks you and you cannot falter or order the wrong way - he'll tell you not to come back either. they spoofed him on SEINFELD, but it was really accurate. i never ordered from him - i gave my order to my friends who were also going and they'd bring it back for me. i don't like abuse from food service people - i can't even look back in retrospect to see the humor

Respect should go both ways, but simply browsing their menu (which THEY PROVIDE) is in no way rude to this guy. While I am intrigued by this place, I gave up being intrigued with much to do with Germantown after one Briarcrest party circa 1984 when some CBHS jackass backed into my car with his Jeep and took off.

Maybe I should say I haven't lost my composure while assisting a customer since I was fifteen. When they leave is another matter.

that's unusual in my experience with him, but he's got daddy's genes.

i wish they were MORE like the soup nazi. both of them spend 5 minutes explaining how great the food is and talking to customers. can be frustrating (as can the asshat table sitters who let someone stand in line to place their order. totally fucks up the flow).

i usually let him pick my order. the ribs are really good, but you have to get there early.

man they play the music deli mexicana WAYYYYYY too loud. ive been in there a few times and they dont even sell iced tea, but they will sell you a 4 dollar mexican mint tea. i much prefer swankys. they have a killer taco salad AND ICED TEA for under $10. deli mexicana is overpriced and over rated. by the way not sure if someone mentioned it, there is now GUADALUPANA 3 on austin peay hwy for all you rawkin raleighers.

yes, you are right. the music's too loud, the owners are jackasses and the crowd is a bunch of germantown stuffed shirt assholes. please don't go there. go to swanky's or el porton and stay out of my line.

Holy Posole! So damn great--we got the camarones y pulpo ceviche, red snapper tacos and Camarones el diabla...so so so so GOOD. Less a tacqueria than a sit down and eat for hours type of joint if you want, but you can go easy and just get tacos too. Friend got lengua tacos--incredible. Kinda made me shrug at the Guad across the street, sorry to say!
Posted: Jun 29, 2008 7:09 pm
 
guad today won for speediest delivery ever, but mediocre salsa and beans.

it's still my favorite from lack of competition from anyone who does what they do, but i'm heading for jerusalem next time i'm hungry & heading east on summer.

Hephzibah is different. They don't fry anything. If you go there a few times they'll take your picture and put it on the wall. They took mine but I don't know if it's up, because that's the last time I ever went. I just got tired of it. It's never had more than a few people in it that I've seen, but I used to eat at off hours, so that might be the deal. I don't remember the wings, but I do remember a bowl of chicken legs that was pretty good. The lamb stew was good.

Las Tortugas was gooooood.

All that crazy signage on the wall was hilarious, including his passive-aggressive "We love our friends, we have so many, but we'll kick you out..." one right at the register.

The young guy rang us up and though very friendly, ended the transaction with, "Enjoy your tacos, you've been here before right?"

Me: "No, this is our first time..."

Guy: "Well, we do GENUINE MEXICAN so that means NO CHEESE DIP."

Me: "Uh, great! Thanks."

Looking around at the G'town crowd I guess they have developed that attitude for a reason, but jeez.

finally made it to Las Tortugas this past Tuesday for lunch. Definitely as good as everyone is saying. I, too, made the mistake of admitting it was my first time there (while my previously indoctrinated dining companion audibly groaned). Holmes went into an 8 minute spiel on authenticity. I appreciated it, but 12:30 on a weekday with the line out the door - not the time.

with cheese dip!

They had Queso Fundido as a special and if I had been in the mood to get kicked out, I might have asked "Well, what the hell is this then, G?"

Has anyone eaten at the the newer joint on Highland near Douglass?
They tricked it out and have a nice patio.
I'm just wondering if the food is any good.
