Barrio Queen... A Trifecta Celebration

So we finally managed to get together to Celebrate the DIL's Birthday, my Birthday and The Son's new Career beginning on Monday.  We chose 'Barrio Queen' Restaurant in Old Town Gilbert, which we'd heard of but it was our first time there and I must say we were all suitably impressed with the quality of the Food, Price, Ambiance and exceptional Service!

The portions are enormous, which is unusual when it's Gourmet Quality Food!  Needless to say we all had plenty of delicious leftovers to bring Home with us for another Meal later on!   We arrived during Happy Hour... so some of us got 'Happy'... *Winks*

And the Price, for four of us, with Appetizers, Cocktails, Dessert and regular Drinks plus the Entrees was so reasonable and came with a Military Discount, so we'll definitely be back!  Princess T joined us, The Man opted out since... Football... even tho' it's only the Pre-Season Games, you couldn't have dragged him away from his big screen TV with a team of Wild Horses!  *LOL*

Yes, those are Salsa stains on my White Tank Top... 'The Girls' always seem to need nourishment too... and at this Season of Life I eat with the coordination of a Toddler!  *LOL* The Menu is extensive and includes Vegetarian and Vegan options, we were all spoiled for choice!   I finally chose the Vegetarian Chile Relleno and it was very good.

This was The Son's choice, which had Green Chile Pork and Chorizo... and we also chose some A La Cart Tacos to try some of the variety of them the Menu offered, which was vast!

My only Group Shot turned out to be out of focus, and No, not becoz I was drunk... I couldn't tell 'til I downloaded it to my PC from FB... so excuse the poor quality of photography!  A good time was had by all...

And for Dessert it was Flan... since... I HAVE to try every Flan at every Mexican Restaurant I have ever eaten at!  *Winks*   Theirs gets a hearty Thumbs Up!  It was a good choice to try this place for the first time, it gets a very high recommendation from our Clan!
