With a craving for Mexican, limited budget, and no patience for the line at Chipotle, I walked around Green Street until I stumbled upon El Charro. As soon as my friend and I walked in on that cold Tuesday evening, we were warmly greeted by two of the waiters. They told us to have a seat wherever we liked, which left us with many options considering we were the only customers in the restaurant. We chose the booth below the flat screen, which prompted the waiter to fetch the remote and try to find something we would want to watch. He landed on Teen Mom 2, which was perhaps his attempt at appealing to two college girls. After he left the remote at our table, we immediately changed it to the Olympics. Despite the initial strangeness of television choice, I felt as though I was hanging out at a friend’s house, watching some TV and relaxing.
Green Street's most underrated Mexican restaurant, El Charro, does not disappoint.
