Restaurant Review – Mexican Food Wars

We have tried two different Mexican restaurants in the past few weeks.  I love Mexican food, but don’t like “chain” type restaurants.

Chylacas (4 stars out of 5)
in Newnan next to Kroger:

I ordered the Carnitas Chili Verdes — tender pork cooked with green sauce, served with rice and beans and tortilla.  This was extremely tasty and the green sauce perfectly done and with the right amount of kick.  Even though I am not a huge fan of refried beans, these were really good.  I also ordered a side of Guacamole, since I must order Guacamole at every restaurant that carries it.  It was amazing.

La Hacienda (3 stars out of 5)
in Newnan near Walmart

Here I ordered the Chicken Enchilada Verdes — again with the green sauce.  The entire meal was bland and there was barely any green sauce on it.  The rice and refried beans tasted flat.  The guacamole was good, but not spicy enough.  We ordered an appetizer of Queso Chorizo, which was really good.

We will be definitely going back to Chylacas, as the food was much better.
