Chicos Tex Mex Opens in Selden
Chicos Tex Mex in East Setauket was one of our previous Taco Tuesday picks. A former food truck that parked itself in a new place and won us over with its menu of burritos, quesadillas, chimichangas, and of course, tacos.
Now, Chicos Tex Mex has expanded to Selden.
Apps include standards like rice and beans ($3.00) and guac and chips ($4.99) but also includes waffle fries and queso ($3.99). The rest of the menu includes all the standard Mexican fare like tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and chimichangas along with Mexican pizza, salad bowls and burrito bowls. Dessert includes churros ($2.50) and fried ice cream ($5).
Also give the fish tacos a try. The fried fish tacos are made up of cod fish with coleslaw, tarter sauce, cilantro and lime ($4.50) and the fiesta fish taco includes grilled fish with mango salsa and chipotle glaze ($4.50).
On Yelp, Paul R, from Coram, gave the new location five stars.
“Wow!!! This has taken the place of an old favorite of mine, Selden Grill,” he wrote. “I was sad at first but Chicos Tex Mex holds up to my high standard and is absolutely outstanding.”
Sandy Q, from Coram, also gave it five stars.
“Def going to be one of the regular spots because of taste, quality, friendly staff and price is not as bad as other places that lack love in their food,” she wrote. “I hope they do not change their ways. Consistency is hard to find. Ps it’s yummmmmmmmmy all of it!”
