So here is the problem…. Mexican food. Memphis. Tex Mex to be exact. You can’t get Tex Mex in Memphis. I have tried many times in the past. And every local that goes to Mexican food restaurants RAVES about the food. Memphis, you don’t know Tex Mex. Until now. Yes, in the past I have been known to smuggle tacos, tortillas, and salsa across the Texas border headed east. Try explaining to airport security how three dozen tamales “accidentally” were placed in your carry on.
Last week a good friend went on and on about a new Mexican / Cuban joint in town. I’m game. Just so you know, Sabrosura Mexican and Cuban Restaurant is located near Poplar and Washington. (782 Washington Ave, Tennessee, Memphis, TN 38105) Not the best area of town, but do not let that put you off. 2 for 1 margaritas? You got it. And yes, they are good.
Hey, what about chips and salsa? They have that too. And the salsa is very good. Try the Super Nachos; you get chorizo sausage in your cheese. Two words; Can’t. Go. Wrong. And that is just the beginning.
My wife ordered enchiladas with chicken.
Our friend ordered tacos.
I went for the tamale, enchilada, rice and beans plate.
First off, the tamale was a bit off flavored. I would not order it again. The enchilada was spot on. Text book Tex Mex. (If you are wondering what “Tex Mex” is, think of a very slight burned flavor added into everything.) My friends taco’s? Again, EXACTLY how Tex Mex tacos should taste. I wouldn’t change one thing about the tacos.
I almost forgot, the fried plantains. (Get the sweet ones) Our friend LOVES them and I agree. Very, very tasty. Order this!
Service was good and friendly. Yes, we will be back to Sabrosura Mexican and Cuban Restaurant.
If you want the best Tex Mex in town, this is the place. Go!
