well hello there Miguel’s Jr. that so swiftly popped up on Newport Blvd.  i just wanted to thank you for replacing that REALLY scary taco bell that once stood on your footprint.  thank you, thank you for reminding me a little of Santana’s (es muy bueno).  yes, Santana’s….not MXN.  thank you for having a relatively easy menu to follow without “COOL RANCH TACOS” and “CRUNCH WRAP SUPREMES” – actually, i’m kind of sad about the lack of crunch wrap supremes – those were so very delicious.  my bean and cheese burrito hit the spot.  the chips, eh.  the salsa, can’t really compare to Santana’s red and Great Mex‘s green.  hot carrots, meh.  but overall, i’m so happy you’re there where i need you.  and a drive thru, no less.  thanks miguel’s jr.  thanks.

Fridays are for tacos.  Don’t bother with Taco Tuesday in Newport Beach.  Fridays at Great Mex really trump all.  Reliable and consistent.  No lines.  It’s not 100 degrees inside.  No punks fighting over texts while spraying cabbage and salsa on my shirt.  The tacos are still $1.25.  A pitcher of beer is still $8.  Sounds like a pretty good Friday.
