Jerry's Famous Deli Serves $18.50 Tacos and Corned Beef for Almost the Same
|Fajita beef burrito plate.|
So I requested a plate of chicken tacos and another containing a fajita beef burrito. "Am I the first person who's ever ordered these?" I asked our waitress.
"Oh no," she replied. "Lots of people order them."
There didn't appear to be even a trace of sarcasm in her voice, so I took her at her word.
|Something ain't kosher about these tacos.|
A quartet of soft tacos came filled with somewhat dry cubes of griddled chicken breast meat "al carbon." A sizable salad plate came alongside; we thought they had accidentally served us a house salad, but turns out it was the filler for the tacos. Best that can be said for the food is there was a lot of it. The taco plate is $18.50.
|Taco filler or house salad? You decide.|
Both plates, with tax, tip, and nothing else: $45.
Think I'll stick with the corned beef on rye. Or not -- I couldn't help but note that the sandwich now costs a whopping $16.50!
|No kidding: This "fajita" beef was delicious.|
