out at gomez salsa

Gomez SalsaI have been sitting on this post for a while now, just waiting to share it, and upon craving it last night and not being able to get it because it wasn’t open, I figured now was the time.

Annie (I am assuming you all know her by now) read that this spot, Gomez Salsa, was listed as one of the top ten taco joints in the city. Now I’m not going to lie. After listening to the list, I was super skeptical. There were restaurants (which shall remain nameless) that were on the list and I gasped. And others of more notable prominence (Nada) were not ranked as high as they should be. Given that, I strolled up to the window cautiously.

And you read that right, Gomez Salsa is a walk up/take out window spot that will serve you the most delicious tacos right there on the street. You pull a checklist order form from the wall and proceed to build your dream burrito. We took the young woman’s, who was working the window, advice and went with the Turtle, which was essentially their version of Taco Bell’s Crunchwrap Supreme. Sold.

It was unreal. I think we all went with fish and then chose our individual accoutrements. I just rapidly checked everything I liked and while I can’t remember the specific makeup itself, I am sure it had cheese, guac, lettuce, corn, tomatoes, beans, and some kind of creamy salsa. We then shlepped our treats to Washington Park and just unleashed. After the first bite, I was completely sold. Gomez Salsa making any kind of delicious and best list is absolutely accurate.

This block rules. growler menu growlers to go two growlers to goAs I sadly learned last night, Gomez only has a few select hours of operation, open only Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. This, much like Chic-fil-A on a Sunday, will only add to my obsessive craving. Now I beg you to swing by on the weekend (even late night!) and get yourself the Turtle. It is just so so so yummy.

    I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this place! Nada is such an obsession of mine that I have to go a few times a month. Not sorry! Definitely going to be making the trip down there to try these out!
