Mexican food review: Posados Cafe in Plano
Bland, bland, and more bland.
The best part of the meal at Posados Cafe in Plano was the friendly, if overly earnest and attentive, waiter. The chain boasts numerous locations throughout Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas. They have five in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. My meal was loaded with lard. I felt like I had a rock in my stomach after eating only half of my meal.
When I inquired about the possibility of spinach enchiladas, the young waiter asked the manager to come over and speak to me about my dietary restrictions. He wanted me to know that the beans were cooked with pork and that there was even some meat or broth in the rice. I thanked him for his concern and instead of bolting for the door, I told him that I was no longer a food Nazi and would happily have the spinach ench dinner with rice and beans.
Yuck salsa served with yuck heavy chips. Bland guac, not recently made. The ranchero sauce was rather bland and there was too much cheese and not enough spinach in my ench's. My son's black bean and cheese burrito was bland and had a yuck Cheez-Whiz type of queso on top. Note to sous-chefs -- actual cheese does not come in bright orange.
I completely overtipped, even though the waiter tried to get me to drink a half-price margarita made with HOUSE BRAND TEQUILA. I felt so bad for the young waiter, who was clearly new and had no other customers.
