Is $9 Too Much to Pay for a Coke and a Bowl of Birria?

Posted By on Wed, Apr 27, 2011 at 3:30 PM

Just wondering, because that’s what the guy at Birria Los Cuates (643 W. Ajo Way) charged me yesterday. I didn’t want to be a cheapskate and complain if that’s a fair price, so I thought I’d ask first.

My other question is: What in the hell is going on at Birria Los Cuates? When I walked in, the entire staff was sitting in the booths in the front room, and nobody would get up to take my order or let me sit down. It was so weird. Eventually, the oldest guy got up and served me a bowl of birria and a plate of tortillas. He then took his seat again, leaving me to fend for myself in the loneliest, mustiest dining room ever.

And what is all of that mail doing on the counter next to the cash register? Like, stacks and stacks of it all over the place. It looks like somebody is living there. That would be awesome to live in a Mexican restaurant, but it probably gets old fast.

So ... if the people who own Birria Los Cuates read this, the next time I come in, could the four of you at least split two booths, and let me have one? That way, I can watch soap operas with you while all of us ignore the customers.

Thank you.
