Jacksonville's Hole in the Wall Restaurants, Part IV

Four places to try and one to avoid.

Mi Veracruz

I went through a lot of internal debate before I decided to include the restaurant that was disappointing. The cooking failed to impress, totally.

The shredded beef in the quesadilla was way too salty. The chicken was lacking in any type of flavor and it way too dry, same with the steak. The ground beef in the burrito was reminiscent of something you get from a school cafeteria. That part grossed me out. It just did not work well with the beans and I can't imagine it being good solo either.  

We knew we were headed towards not so good food when the chips came. They were freshly fried but each chip left a slight film in our mouth. It was like they were using fresh poured motor oil.  

It's a shame. I loved the feel of the place. It's was reminiscent of a Mexican Waffle House... just not as good as you would imagine. I'm hoping it was a bad night with a new cook.

Oh, the salsa was tasty. That's something.
