Enjoy Authentic Mexican Food on the Smoke-Free Patio

My coworkers and I enjoyed lunch at Andale Taqueria & Mercado on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon. We arrived around noon, and found our place in a long line out the door. Despite the lunch hour rush, the line moved quickly and efficiently, and we were seated at a table in the shade outside with our food within ten minutes. Andale Taqueria & Mercado is an authentic Mexican restaurant and super market. Inspired by street-style Mexican food, Andale Taqueria serves up excellent, authentic food and fast.

Delicious Street-Style Mexican Food

Between the three of us, we ordered a pork burrito, a Platillos carnitas platter, and the beef fajitas. We also shared some chips with fresh pico de gallo salsa and some bottles of Coke. Everything we ordered was excellent and we had more food than we could possibly eat. The ingredients were fresh, and the pulled pork was particularly delicious.

Wander Through the Market and Discover Something New!

After lunch, I wandered through the supermarket across the sidewalk from the restaurant, and found it full of treasures. Everything from fresh produce, to a bakery, to a full butcher’s counter can be found at this authentic Mexican market. I walked out with a bag full of house-made chicharonnes, a favorite of mine, for less than $4.00. This is also a great place to pick up a beautiful piñata for a party, some interesting candy that you may never have tried, and delicious desserts like tres leches cake.

Overall, we had a great experience at Andale Taqueria & Mercado and spent less than $50 total. On top of the excellent food and groceries, the staff was extremely friendly and efficient. If you’re looking for a great place to try some authentic Mexican food with your family, venture over to Andale Taqueria & Mercado and you’re sure to walk away with a new favorite food and possibly a new favorite restaurant.
