As I walked in the place seemed a little into the whole "Hot Sauce" theme. There were hundreds of different bottles of the stuff as you walk in the lobby. For sale, to sample or even decor. They were into sauce! I enjoy sauce myself, so I knew this was my kind of place.
You walk through the bar to get to the restaurant part. Which is fine. It just makes me laugh that at 12:30 on a Wednesday afternoon the bar was more packed than the restaurant. Must stir up some stiff drinks! The decor was cute, lots of talavera tiles and paintings on the wall - very colorful. I sat at my booth and was greeted to a warm basket of well salted chips. The salsa was decent, lots of onion, green onion and cilantro. I had a lone chunk of tomato in it - he must have been lonely sitting in the dish... all by himself.
All in all this place was fun. I read the menu front to back because the description of their food was clever. This for example caught my eye, Texas Armadillo Eggs -From authentic Texas armadillos! They are plump and juicy, with a hint of jalapeno spice. Served with fresh, cool salsa ranch dressing for dipping. (Ask your server for the straight story). They also serve Tequila Flights which sound like fun, John, Dude & Donnie's Favorite of the Month: 3 1 oz. shots, El Conquistador, Anejo-Corralejo Triple Distilled, Don Fernando Anejo..$20.00. The atmosphere was pretty chill and seemed to be a locals favorite. Would I return? Yes. Can't wait to try those Armadillo Egg's! ;)
I went to high school in Lodi and HH was famed for the wall of flame! Did you attempt to eat a Habanero when you were there?
