I love Mexican Food, Unfortunately it can be hard to find the real authentic good stuff up here in the pacific northwest unless you go to a Taco wagon. I cant count the times I have walked into a sit down mexican restaurant ordered the Combo Platter with Enchiladas Tacos and a Chili Relleno only to be bitterly Disappointed. It usually comes out on a huge platter completely covered with melted cheese and thats it no chilis, no Lime,not even some cilantro to add a little freshness and color. You Dig in expecting to get the tang of Chili's, onions, tomatoes and spices and instead you get Blah!, Nothing, so I ask the waitress for some Salsa and she either hands me some store bought hotsauce in a bottle or brings me the stuff made from tomatoes in a can with a few onions and almost no Chili Pepper, the same stuff they brough you to dip your chips in. I dump the entire container of "Woosie" salsa on my Food, choke down half my plate and as im leaving make a phone call to a Travel Agent to get me a ticket to Mexico. I once finished eating at a very "Expensive" sit down Mexican restaurant, got in my car, and drove straight to a Taco Wagon to un traumatize my taste buds (I am being 100% serious when I say this). Then we discovered Robertos Taco Shop in Kennewick Washington, It is the real deal completely non pretentious Mexican Soul Food. I almost wept great trucker tears of joy when I saw the fat freshly roasted jalapenos and fried onions sitting there beside the condiment Tray, heaped with fresh cilantro and Hand made Salsas and Red Chili Peppers. The wonderful thing about Roberto's is they are open 24 hours. The not so good thing is they are located fairly far from any good truck parking. So Driver if you are in the mood for Real Mexican food and are in Tri Cities Wa. Park your truck wherever you can find parking, maybe at the King City truck stop in Pasco or the little one on 395 going through kennewick and call, Tri City Taxi. (509) 547-7777 tell them to take you to Roberto's
