Review: Roscoe's TacosAuthor: WIBIA | Filed under: Food Reviews, Location: Greenwood, IN
So you are probably seeing a trend. Tacos, pizza, burgers and some nice restaurants in between. No matter how full I am, I always have room for a slice of pie or a taco.
What I Ate: 2 Paul Bunyons and a drink $4.99 Instead of saying small or large tacos, Butch Cassidy is a small, Paul Bunyon is a large. Go figure?
I had to get the ground beef because it was a special. Shredded chicken was my other choice of protein. Ground beef was basically sautéed beef in a mild chili sauce. I didn’t taste notes of cumin, chili powder like I normally would expect. It was very plain. The taco had sour cream, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, black olives and onions. No black olives for me, nasty.
By the pickup counter, there is a selection of 6 sauces in squirt bottles, this was a nice touch. I tried mild, Too Darn Hot and Smokin’. I like Smokin’ the best as it was a nice balance of flavor and heat. No green sauce to be found.
Would I Buy It Again? No. I rank it high on a value factor, but was average on taste. It lacked authenticity and originality. They are the tacos that I grew up, the kind a mom used to make, but I have moved on.
Instead: Brush up on your Espanol and head to Taqueria Guanajuato on 31st and Shadeland. Loud music, fresh food and bold flavors that will take you right to the border. Indy is full of great Taqueria’s, feel free to list your favorite
