There’s a bit of a mix-up so for today’s Family Meal – eat out!
Tejano BBQ Burrito is a new-ish joint from the team behind Blackstrap BBQ in Verdun. They serve up… you guessed it! Burritos with all the fixings.
I know, I know – everyone and their dog has written about Tejano already so I’ll only focus on two things. If you should go there – YES YOU SHOULD – (and frankly I don’t talk about places I wouldn’t recommend) and the family-logistics of it.
First off the menu is pretty basic. I think if I was ordering for my kid (3 years old), I’d ask for something like the pulled pork in a bowl with a tortilla on the side. For myself, size wise, I ordered the XL. When the young gentleman serving me said he thought a regular would be enough, I told him that I was feeding two and pointed to my 6 month old. Then I winced, realizing there was NO WAY he’d get the breastfeeding reference and probably thought I was just blaming my appetite on the poor baby.
Secondly, this is not a place to bring the family for a sit down meal. It’s small and there’s only a very small area to eat with stools.
This is it. Got it?
Having said that, this place is amazing so definitely make it a family meal – just bring it back home to eat. Besides, no one wants to see half a burrito rolling down your face in public.
If you want to walk from Westmount or St-Henri (doable!) access into the restaurant is just a tiny tiny ledge. There’s a parking lot next door (although I didn’t check if it was really truly for patrons of Tejano). I parked on Notre-Dame at the corner of Courcelle (the street they are located on) and it DIDN’T EVEN HAVE A METER. I nearly pooped my pants I couldn’t believe it.
ps If you’re sending your husband to pick up the order, use this order sheet so he knows EXACTLY what you want.
