Overheard At The Restaurant

Well technically it aint a restaurant. I found this little trailer serving mexican fare on Main Street which is actually a back street in this old town.

It is only at this site on Thrusday and Fridays. The menu is simple and the food is amazing. Nothing Americanized about their Tacos and Sopes.

I was there last week picking up an order of Tres Tacos with carne asada when a car drove by with a bunch of kids in it hollaring, "F... You, F... you". Classy, guys. I was so embarassed and a little nervous as the main clientele is hispanic workers. I didnt know what to say but the folks there pretty much ignored it. Seems they get that a lot but it was new to me so I apologized for them. Kinda stupid as it wernt me doing it but I was at a loss of what to do.

Now I pretty intolerant of illegals. I am against them being here. However if you are here legally and willing to work, more power to ya. They should'nt have to put up with that crap.

And to you guys in the little white Honda. Grow a pair, next time stop and get out before you start running your mouth or even better, try growing up.

Exactly! When you're here to work and make you life better, more power to ya. But for any little bastards who are yelling and swearing, grow up and get a job!

See, and if they had stopped, they would have had a taco.

And then they would have had nothing but praise for them.

I lived in Fl for 7 years. I knew many Cubans who had come here searching for a better life...LEGALLY. I knew Russians who were religous refugees... also here LEGALLY. Almost HUbs's family came here so the boys would not HAVE to join and serve in the POrtuguese army when they turned 18. They also came here LEGALLY.

Are you seeing a pattern?

If they want out, there is always a way. But when they come here, they must be willing to work, contribute, and give back.

Even if it's one taco at a time. :)

I was born and raised in Southern California, my mother is Mexican, my daughters are part Mexican, half of my friends are Hispanic and my in laws came to this country from Germany legally....We all agree with you. It's gotten to the point where everything is written in English AND Spanish...It really tics me I'll just stop right here....

btw....I'm makin' carnitas tonight....yummmm!!!

Personally if someone wants to go to all the trouble that an illegal immigrant has to to get into this country to work a minimum wage job that no one in this country will do then go for it, legal or illegal.

What a bunch of wienies. Get out of the car. But I bet if someone came after them, they'd run like hell.

And I totally agree with you.

I think most people feel the way you do....but we only see hatred on TV, so everyone thinks we hate each other...we don't.
But we sure do love tacos...
