Indiana Restaurant Review
Mexican Restaurant -
Go Early, Eat Lots
have a feeling
this is one of the rarely visited Mexican Restaurants in
Lake County, Indiana, but I'm going to recommend that it be
a bit more frequented. I found it to be a unique place, with truly good food, and a
great potential of becoming a more popular restaurant.
speaking of Alberto's Mexican Restaurant in historic
downtown Hammond, Indiana, on Hohman Avenue.
The exterior of the building is recognizable by its
cornered face on the northeast side of the block.
The interior is somewhat pleasant, not your newest
Mexican restaurant in the county, but it does well in
providing a festive decor.
food was impressive in its authenticity and still
maintaining a general appeal to the masses.
Some Mexican restaurants tend to be a bit too
compliant in appealing to those who would more likely dip
their nachos into catsup than into salsa.
I always wonder why these people even go to Mexican
restaurants, and am pleased to give credit to Mexican
restaurants such as Alberto's for appealing to those who do
appreciate Mexican menus.
salsa at Alberto's was some of the best I'd had in a few
months, and I am almost constantly dining at Mexican
restaurants. I'm a fan of lots of cilantro in salsa, and Alberto's met my
dining partner had the enchilada dinner (with rice and
beans) for under $7. He was satisfied both palate-wise and stomach-wise.
I had the tampinquena de pollo for $10.9,5 which
included rice, beans and soup or salad.
The main course was terrific, and the chicken
vegetable soup had a definite homemade quality to it, very
nice. Also ask
about their tripe soup, though it wasn't available at the
time/day that I was there.
you're looking somewhere new for an evening out and an
enjoyable place to relax with some friends, I do believe you
will appreciate Alberto's.
It may not be the best destination for a first date,
but for cases other than that, it's a fine bet.
negative to look out for is that this restaurant doesn't
stay open as late as others do, so be sure to dine a bit
earlier than you might have otherwise.
I was there on a Friday night, when it was scheduled
to close at 8:00 p.m.
