Chili's - Fried Onions and Jalepenos and 6 oz. Sirloin Steak

Got the 2 for $20 at Chili's.  The appetizer was included so I ordered the fried onions and jalapenos.  I was surprised how many came in the order. - it felt like me and my friend ate a ton of these with ranch and there was still a good amount left.  They were undercooked so there was slimy onion texture at times.  It goes without saying these things have a high fat and salt rating...BUT THIS IS TACOGRAPHICS SO I HAVE TO RATE THESE CLOWNS.  As for the pic, this isn't even a full order - the cup of ranch was the second one we had:

The STEAK entree was very good all the way around.  The 6 oz. cut of sirloin ordered well done came with some melted butter and seasoning.  The amount of juice was decent, but after a while I didn't have any left so A1 came in to play.  Along with the loaded mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, and garlic bread,  this may be one of this blog's most mouth-watering images to date.  People in the food industry say we taste with our eyes, and this is a good case of that.

El Curtido - Carne Asada Taco and Revuelta Pupusa

I'll admit my taste in food is pretty entry level, and this blog is proof of that.  Before I created TACOGRAPHICS, my taste in fast food was even more limited. I've slowly expanded my horizons over the past year (mainly because I've had a couple people to try places with).

I've wanted to try El Curtido for a couple months before going yesterday.  It's a mix of Mexican (GOD TIER food) and Salvadorian food (never had). 

They had a happy hour menu, and my eyes sorta lit up seeing all the choices.  I ended up with a carne asada taco, which was meh.  The meat had flavor, but was chewy and overcooked.

I also got a revuelta pupusa.  You may be thinking WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS THAT?  Before you open a new tab and google, relax bro, I'll tell you what it is dude.  A pupusa is a thick doughy corn tortilla, and revuelta is a mixture of pork, beans, and cheese inside.  So yeah, it was great.  The tortilla was fresh and held the contents inside pretty well.  There wasn't an overwhelming amount of filling, but there was an adequate amount. The mix of beans, pork, and cheese was tasty without being too salty. 

It came with a side of a sort of coleslaw that wasn't a typical creamy/mayo coleslaw (mayo fucking sucks), but it was more a light shredded cabbage and carrot blend that (texture and taste wise) complemented the pupusa well.   In conclusion, GET THIS IT WAS BUENO.
