The skinny: The sun was shining and the breeze was blowing. It was a great day for sitting back and relaxing with a plate of tacos and a margarita.
Uncle Julio’s is known for its fajitas, my server said. But I didn’t feel like chowing down on a huge order of fajitas, so I decided to go for a mix — the soft tacos filled with the chicken ordinarily cooked up for fajitas.
The mesquite-grilled bits of tender chicken on the tacos had a wonderful smoky quality tempered by the fresh tomatoes and crisp iceberg lettuce.
Also tasty: Those frijoles a la charra, or pinto beans cooked with peppers, bacon or pork and tomatoes.
