There's nothing worse than having high hopes for a restaurant, only to have them completely dashed, and that's exactly what happened last night when I ordered the tacos dorados, which arrived with little more than lettuce and enough sour cream to overburden a landfill. And if that wasn't bad enough, the joint was out of tamales and out of the avocado salsa. And then, the clincher: The place only takes cash, but nowhere -- not on the walls, not on the menu, not anywhere else, for that matter -- is there a disclaimer saying as much. There is, however, a mini machine where you can swipe your debit card in order to pay cash, but it'll cost you an additional $1.25 in order to take advantage of the luxury. #pissedoff.
