LOS PRIMOS CRAVINGS

There are a lot of Los Primos Mexican Restaurants around the country, and I doubt they are all connected, but I’m sure most have excellent food. We have one in Harriman and what I like best is that they have Dos Equis XX on draft, and in the large frosty mug size!

I did not photograph my plate, as I known to do, because most Mexican restaurant servings look similar, but instead I focused on the ambiance. Los Primos here has a very colorful theme that is very festive, and relaxes me even before the waiter brings my mug!

The staff is very friendly and very efficient. They seem to anticipate your needs rather than having to be flagged down as they pass.

I don’t speak Spanish, but I do understand a little, and I some times think it best to use a little of their native language in order to show that I respect their heritage. The other evening when ordering my Dos Equis, I said “Grande” to indicate I wanted the big mug.

The waiter, without hesitating said, “The large one?” Was he respecting me back, or was he making fun of my attempt at Spanish?

You're probably right, but it just hit me funny, me trying to speak Spanish and he confirms in English!
