Cabo Bob's cranks out fresh tortillas and cane sugar soda goodness

Cabo Bob's is down on 290 a little east of I35.  Near the Wal-Mart.  They have several things that differentiate themselves from the competition.  They cook your tortilla when you order, and I mean cook it not just steam it a bit, and they have a nice variety of cane sugar sodas.  No high fructose corn syrup here.  And you know what they say about high fructose corn syrup.  I loved that SNL sketch.

We walked up to the counter and Steph order the cheddar tortilla and I ordered the ancho chile tortilla.  The guy turned and grabbed two balls of dough from a large rack and placed them, one a a time, into the press.  Then threw them on a big spinning grill to cook.  It looked a little like a smaller version of that Mongolian Grill cook top.  After a minute or two the tortillas are ready to go.  You can order anything you like or you can pick from about a dozen suggestions on the wall.  Steph made her own with their beef fajita meat that's smoked in a Big Green Egg smoker with extra cheese, pinto beans and brown rice.  I didn't catch which sauce she ordered.  I had a taste and the meat was tender and smokey and played well with the other ingredients.  I had the #6 which is shredded brisket, pinto beans, cheese, grilled onions and other veg with a "66 sauce."  The sauce was nice and spicy with a hint that it was meant to be a BBQ sauce.  They did a good job fusing TexMex and BBQ flavors together.  My meat was also tender and flavorful.  Overall it was filling and well seasoned.

The staff at Cabo Bob's has been friendly and welcoming both times we've gone.  They are happy to answer questions about the flavors and ingredients of all the items on the line and will help you if you are having a hard time deciding.  The last time we went a girl was holding up the line kind of being a pain but the manager was right up there and kept things rolling so the line wouldn't get backed up.  And all of that with a smile.  He should be commended for his leadership in that situation.  I certainly appreciated it given I would have been the grumpy fat man in that situation. Actually I was, I asked her to stop holding up the line.  Was that too much?  I said it nicely.

Until tomorrow stay grumpy my friends.
