Celebrando en Taco Azteca

Celebrando en Taco Azteca

Happy Mother's day to all the wonderful mothers out there! I hope everyone has an awesome, relaxing day surrounded by family, friends, and of course - food!

Now on to today's post :) For Cinco de Mayo,  my friend Jon suggested we try Taco Azteca in the Kennesaw area since we were unwilling to deal with the craziness of another Mexican restaurant called Los Reyes which was not far from Azteca. I'm glad Jon made this suggestion because the patio area was surrounded by drunk people who were falling over and were just obnoxious really. Plus, the local Carl Black dealership had vehicles parked right outside of the action.

Pizza & fun at Westside Pizza… Delicioso!!

Pizza & fun at Westside Pizza… Delicioso!!

Westside Pizzeria is a neighborhood restaurant/bar I frequent a lot because it’s literally within walking distance to D’s house. At first, I wasn’t a huge fan of their food, until I just started ordering different items every time I came in to see what was good, and what to stay away from. Also, the first time I went, service was so bad, even D was upset. Now, D is very laid back. I mean he has the patience to put up with me so that says a lot about him Plus, he goes to Westside almost every night to have dinner and knows everyone who works there on a first name basis – so I hope you get an idea of just how bad service was that one night! But I had never had such a bad greek salad and sad looking white pizza that our server had recommended.
