I went to Diego's for my Mexican food fix the other day.
The last time I was home, I tried the carne asada with chips and loved it.
Then Dennis commented that he saw carne asada with fries where he lives, and I remembered seeing that on Diego's menu too.
I knew that carne asada with the chips would be awesome but wanted to try it with fries...
So, I asked the guy if I could get a small carne asada with chips and fries. I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask and the worst thing he could say was "no".
Luckily, they weren't too busy...they gave me a half order of chips and fries with the carne asada and a nice dollop of guacamole...US$6.25 (with tax).
I think if I had eaten it right there in the shop, the fries would have still been crispy but since I drove home and then ate, they were quite limp.
The chips were still on the crisp side but were very very salty.
The meat was delicious and not too much gristle this time around.
I think the next time (probably the next time I come home) I will get the carne asada with chips and ask them not to salt it.
For a "small", this was HUGE, I think I've soothed my craving for Mexican, for now.
UPDATE: as of 3/2012, this place has closed
