Today Daniel and I decided to have take out from our favorite Mexican eatery, El Rey #2. It is located not too far from Southern Shopping Center on Little Creek Road in Norfolk. Though this time we got take out the food was just as delicious and fresh as when we dine in the casual moderate sized mexican motifed restaurant. There is also a sister restaurant on the corner of Bayview Blvd and Chesapeake Blvd in Norfolk known just as El Rey. The Chesapeake Blvd location is more of a take out joint and has a small dining area consisting of two tables and a small diner type seating area.
Today we decided on the steak gorditas platter consisting of 3 gorditas and beans and rice and two chicken tacos. El Rey never disappoints and always delivers authentic handmade to order fresh corn and flour tortillas with their dishes. The steak gorditas were perfect with well seasoned meat, fresh lettuce, tomato, refried beans, and cheese all stuffed into a flour tortilla. So fresh and delicious. The chicken taco is one of the best around cilantro, lime, chicken breast, tomato, and lettuce in a fresh handmade tortilla, we went with the flour tortillas. We have had the corn tortillas during previous visits and they are just as tasty.
We have eaten just about everything off the menu and have never been disappointed. Menu items range from soup, tortas, enchiladas, tamales, chimichangas, and fajitas. They have beef tongue, mexican barbeque pork, and steaks available. They offer several drinks such as horchata, coke in the bottle from mexico, and other popular drinks from mexico. The only downside is that they do not yet have an ABC license and do not currently serve alcohol. If you are looking for the real deal try this place. Since our first visit Daniel doesn’t want to get mexican food anywhere else.
