We were referred to this new restaurant downtown Grand Rapids

by our  friends, John & Betsy, who live in Heritage Hill.  They met us

for lunch at Taquitos a couple of times.

Taquitos is located at Division Ave in the old Herkimer Hotel at

the corner of Division and Cherry streets.  We really liked the way

the building was remodeled, it still has the ambiance of an old bar

and restaurant that existed there years ago but with current flair

and lots of light.  No dark and dingy digs here.  We also liked the

food and the service.  We want to encourage the redevelopment

going on in this Heartside District of Grand Rapids

A few years ago, this area was populated mainly by homeless

people and shelters.

Taquitos is located in the bottom of the old Herkimer Hotel Building

at the corner of Division  and Goodrich.  The Heartside District is

growing into a local "arts community" and we  welcome new

businesses like Taquitos.

Now that you have some background, we can get down to

the good stuff……the food.  Authentic Mexican fare at Taquitos,

a clean, friendly restaurant with great food.  We love Mexican food,

the more authentic, the better. Mole is on the menu, which is

seldom seen outside of Mexico.  Since it was a hot day, we went

for a chicken burrito and the chicken salad. The chicken salad had

a light lime vinagrette and was delicious, according to Bonnie.  The

chicken burrito was good also, lots of chicken and it was available

with sauce or without.  They serve hot tortilla chips and a mild salsa

for an appetizer.  Our waitress was smiling and happy to wait on us.

Here are a few pictures of Taquitos.    We will be back for sure!
