In honor of the start to TigerNation this weekend I went to a place almost every student at the University of Memphis has gone to at some point, Las Delicias. They are known for their amazing chips as well as great authentic Mexican that won’t break you budget. On any night you will find the parking lot full at the Park Ave location but on the weekend it is packed for sure with hungry college students wanting a break from campus.
The wait staff is friendly and prompt usually placing a basket of warm home made tortilla chips and salsa right after you are seated. Some the favorite dishes of me and my friends are the chicken quesadilla and the chicken burrito. They both come with pico de gallo and sour cream on the side though I prefer mine without the sour cream. Las is also home to some of the best margaritas in town, so if you’re in need of a drink after work with friends head to Las for some food and fun.They also have plenty of room for large parties which can be a problem at restaurants at times.
