Mono Loco

Just before the free Trolley dives across the mall at 2nd St SW, it passes Mono Loco to the right, which occupies the SW corner of the 2nd St SW and Water Street corner. For a few years now, they've been serving up "nouveau-Latin cuisine", as described on their web site. Describing it as a Charlottesville south of the border experience, similar to Continental Divide's but with a more extensive menu, means more in the provinces.

There's a bar and a small indoor eating area. The largest and more popular place to eat is on the canopied patio. The website claims two outdoor patios, but it's really just one big one.

The Mushroom Tamale platter was all tamale and not enough mushrooms. The cabbage slaw makes the locos tacos de pescados worth coming back for. The Mojito tasted good, but it was light on the booze. There's a requisite selection of Mexican beers.
