Hecho En Iowa-A Search for the Best Hometown Tacos: Locale 21, West Branch

Mexico Lindo is located in the small town of West Branch, but has a HUGE menu! 315 East Main Street

West Branch, IA: Cedar County

Herbert Hoover’s hometown may be home to one of Iowa’s largest Mexican food menus. Seriously folks, it’s going to take some time picking something. Which is why you may want to choose multiple selections. Have a couple margaritas and start on the next page. Chapter 7 is a tearjerker. A family is forced to choose from 11 styles of guacamole and 14 fajita platters….Well I don’t want to ruin the ending. Let’s get to what Team Goodvin ordered.

The Cheesesteak Taco! Tender, seasoned perfectly, grilled onions, and loaded with cheese!

The Cheesesteak Taco was a beautiful sight when it was presented to our table. It was just what I though it would be. The steak was juicy and well prepared and all the rich cheese and onions that was stuffed inside the flour tortilla that gave it the comfort food punch anybody would enjoy. What else did we order? You’ll like this…

Traditional Huevos Rancheros-Runny eggs with chorizo sausage, rice, refried beans, melted cheese, and a rich ranchero sauce. Breakfast served anytime, my friends. Now let’s go with a huge chicken burrito smothered with creamy queso sauce. A trifecta of enchiladas (cheese, beef, and chicken), and loaded beef nachos. The Cheesesteak Tacos had some great company in West Branch on this day.
