true home style mexican food.
on a recent roadtrip from los angeles to napa valley, we stopped at several local eateries. the one that stands out the most is "antojitos mexicanos".
located next door to subway sandwiches off i-5 in the small town of patterson, antojitos mexicanos appears to be a typical rustic diner in central california. what separates this place from other eateries is the inexpensive outstanding food. also, the staff are simply some of the friendliest people you'll come across.
i ordered a mexican breakfast burrito and my other half ordered a mexican breakfast plate (sorry, but, i forget the name of it.) between the two of us, there was enough food to feed 4 people. the breakfast burrito was by far the best i've ever had. and my boyfriend concurred that his breakfast plate had a delicious home cooked taste to it.
after we finished eating, we asked the owner if we could buy a bottle of their hot sauce. the kind owner insisted on letting us have the bottle. we just had terrific food at an affordable price and met a truly kind person.
if you're traveling on i-5 and looking for a great mexican food, then i suggest stopping by antojitos mexicanos. it's a little hard to find since it's a little ways off the freeway plus the neighbouring subway sandwich shop overshadows antojitos mexicanos. set your navigation system and you'll find one of the best and affordable mexican restaurants north of the border.
