We don’t often get up to Lutz for dinner, but we headed out there tonight to eat at Mekenita Mexican Grille.  They were pretty busy tonight.  We munched down some chips and sauce while waiting on our burritos.

The dipping sauce has a nice smokey flavor about it, but it was a bit cold tonight, like it had just come out of the refrigerator.  Loren ordered the grilled steak burrito and I ordered the shrimp burrito.

Unfortunately, these burritos didn’t live up to our expectations.  Whoever was in the kitchen putting them together didn’t put a whole lot of care in getting the ingredients spread properly throughout.  We both found one half of our burritos to have a lot less sauce and flavor than the other side.  It had good flavor overall, but just wasn’t as good as we’ve had in the past here.  Total bill with a drink was $21.
