My best girl friends and I try to get together at least once a month (it’s hard to because we’re all busy and it’s hard to find 1 day that we’re all available). After a few months of not seeing each other, we finally found a day in May to grab dinner and drinks. We decided on Blockheads (1 of my girlfriends heard a lot of great things about this Mexican restaurant).
We get there around 6 pm. The restaurant is somewhat small in the front but there were more tables in the back. We sat in the back on these chairs that kind of reminded me of metal lawn chairs. Our waiter was pretty funny (he joked about the food and annoying customers). He also brought out these addicting chips and salsa! The salsa was mildly spicy and the chips were lightly salted.
The 1st thing we ordered were drinks! Margaritas were pretty cheap ($4 for a small, $7 for a large, and $1 extra for flavors). My girlfriends ordered 2 small margaritas, 1 on the rocks and the other frozen strawberry. I ordered a large frozen peach margarita. The margaritas were so good! I tried not to drink too much because I had to watch my figure (this was right before I flew in for LL Bean).
For our entrees, 1 of my girlfriends ordered a vegetarian burrito (had lots of rice, black beans, broccoli, cauliflower, squash, and carrots) and my other friend ordered a bbq chicken burrito. I ordered a shredded beef soft taco and salad. Though I love meat, I tried the veggie burrito and it was actually very moist and had lots of flavor. The bbq chicken burrito on the other hand, was moist as well but was way too spicy. My taco was actually the best dish of the night. It was juicy and moist. My girlfriends tried it as well and loved it! The salad was a typical house salad but the dressing was zesty and a little spicy. After dinner, we stopped by the bar Turtle Bay for some more drinks. We had a good dinner, fun drinks, and a good time. What more can you ask for?
