So we had to make a last minute switch! We moved our party up the street to Cantina Laredo, which had a far shorter wait and room open at the bar. Cantina Laredo is a nice Mexican restaurant. It's not what I would call a casual place, but it's not all that expensive. Dinner is about $15 unless you order something fancy.

I was totally fine with with the change. I don't really eat fish - the texture freaks me out. Normally when I go to a place like Nate's, I order chicken or a burger, but that wouldn't have been a choice since I was observing no meat Friday. Instead, I had no meat enchiladas! The Enchiladas de Avocado topped with queso to be specific. It is not a dish I would normally order, but it was one of the few meat free options, so I went with it. It was pretty good, but not good enough to order again. I've had the tacos and fajitas in the past and I liked both more than the enchiladas.
Despite Nate's not working out, we had a good night! I'm sure that it will win again some time - hopefully when Lent is over!
