South of the (Pittsburgh) Border for Tacos at Old Mexico

South of the (Pittsburgh) Border for Tacos at Old Mexico

On average, I don’t think I regularly experience a case of the “Mondays”.  Usually on Mondays I try to get a good workout in and get my favorite dollar tacos at Patron Mexican Grill.  Rarely do I let Mondays get to me.  However, last Monday…oh last Monday…I had a bad case of the Mondays. On that fateful Monday, I had Nate drive my beloved 2003 Honda CRV (aka Silver Bullet) to work at the Washington Auto Mall so he could…

Going Over the Bar in Pittsburgh for Taco Tuesday

Going Over the Bar in Pittsburgh for Taco Tuesday

Taco Troubles Two Tuesdays ago took an unexpected turn after I was done training at West Penn Hospital in Bloomfield. After finishing the in class and online new hire courses, I was planning to get a late taco lunch in Lawrenceville, the neighborhood next door. Since I was in the area during the day I figured it would be a great time to try out Smoke.  I have heard wonderful things about their meats, and I didn’t want to attempt…

Tacos from El Patron..How Else Do You Refuel After Racquetball?

This is the third week in a row I had tacos after racquetball, and it was an exciting game this time ending with 2 wins and 2 loses! My racquetball partner Andy and I were too tired for the intense fifth game tie-breaker and decided it was time for tacos after working up a sweat at the gym. Since we were in Greensburg for racquetball I decided it was an opportune time to taco ’bout a restaurant that I have been to many…

Pittsburgh Tacos on New Years!

Pittsburgh Tacos on New Years!

Last tacos of 2016 at Round Corner Cantina New Years Eve of 2016 turned out to be one of my favorites of all time. I woke up Saturday morning without any plans made for the day. The only thing I knew was that I would be having leftovers for lunch and tacos somewhere for dinner. After watching a few episodes of Parks and Recreation, I pulled out a list of breweries around the Pittsburgh area that I wanted to try. As soon as I…
