Jorge's Kitchen Mexican Grill and Bar (Mount Vernon, Washington, USA)
www.Facebook.com/JorgesKitchen Don't miss this place or let the look fool you. It is a part of the Little Mountain Grocery store/ gas station. 2/3 rds of the inside is grocery store and the other third is Jorge's Kitchen. Inside the smell is awesome and yes Jorge is the cook, who is also very friendly. There is a small sit up bar that seats 7 people, there are two tables of 4 and 3 tables of two and that is it. Jorge said in the summer they open up the outside patio and it gets very busy out there. The outside patio is surrounded by a 6'6" fence. The patio is stamped concrete with nice wood picnic tables with umbrellas. To drink they serve Elysian Brewing Co. beer. According to Wikipedia: "The Elysian Brewing Company was a craft brewer that operated four pubs in Seattle. On January 23, 2015, it was announced that Elysian would be sold to Anheuser-Busch in a deal expected to close within three months." They also serve Corona Lite all on tap. There is no hard liquor, coolers, wine or cider, just beer. Now lets get to what makes this place so amazing, the food! Everything is cooked fresh and it is very busy but the service is fast and friendly. This place also does a booming take out business. There were lots of Mexican people eating and taking out food from here which is a very good sign. The menu is relatively small but the food is sooooo good! We had the 3 tacos with beans and rice. The tacos are soft, double with your choice of pork, chicken or beef with fresh cilantro and diced onions. We went with the pork and I have to say one of the best tacos I have ever had! the price, $7.99 and great value. We each had a Corona =Lite and they were $2.00 a glass, another great value! Other things on the menu are: Burritos, Tortas, Mulitas, Super Nachos, Super Quezadilla, Carne Azada and Carne Adovanda. The most expensive things are $8.69, and you can't beat that! Happy hour runs 4-7 pm and all day Sunday. Saturday is seafood day where he has Fish tacos and Cerciviche apparently that is also a very busy day. I can't wait to come back here! I look forward to coming here in the summer and eating out side on the patio area. If I could I would give it 3 thumbs up, it is that good! I will be back for sure and hopefully sooner rather than later!
