Family-Friendly Tex-Mex Cuisine at Moe's Southwest Grill: Ish Eats Tacos!

Selection of Tex-Mex staples from Moe’s Southwest Grill

Let me get straight to the point. I say family-friendly because the food here isn’t that spicy. Kids will love it, picky adults and sensitive seniors will love it too.

Now, depending on how you look at it, the mild heat can be interpreted in different ways. If you’re a big group with adventurous and picky eaters in the mix, then everyone can find something that they will like. It’s a safe bet.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for something that packs a bigger punch, then you should probably be heading to one of the joints that are more authentic Mexican versus Southwestern American-Mexican fusion.

Let’s talk more about the food.

Our group tried nearly every possible combo meal. Basically, you can mix and match any two of your favorite Tex-Mex staples. We had the following: Burrito-Taco, Burrito Nachos, Burrito-Quesadilla, Taco-Quesadilla, 2 Taco Bundle, Taco-Chili Con Carne.

Burrito-Taco Combo: Jr. Chicken Burrito + Beef Taco, chips, salsa and sour cream (Php335.0)
Two Taco Bundle: 1 Chicken Taco + 1 Beef Tacop + chips and salsa (Php225.00)
Burrito and Nachos Combo: Jr. chicken Burrito + Nachos, salsa and sour cream (Php265.000)

I’m a fan of these combo meals because I like having the opportunity to try more than one dish. Sometimes, restaurants have large servings which leave little room for variety especially when dining alone or with a group that won’r go family-style on the table.

Everything tastes pretty straightforward. Basically, it’s what you would expect from burritos and tacos. Not much variety in terms of meat, like you would get in many of the new street taco joints popping up around town. Again, all fairly safe bets. No surprises here!

The salsas are also very tame. The salsa verde in particular is made from green mangoes. It is more sweet than spicy so you would need to ask for some hot sauce if you’re looking for a stronger kick.

Apart form the usual tacos and burritos, we also tried the enchiladas. These are also considered to be Tex-Mex staples. The version here comes in a cast iron skillet doused in cheese sauce. You can’t really go wrong with anything doused in cheese sauce. This dish packs more spice than the rest and is quite flavorful. However, you might need some chips on the side to cut through the richness as you’re eating this.

Next up was the Mexican Pizza. A thin, crispy dough topped with classic Mexican ingredients. Yet another safe choice and a great option. Pizza and Mexicaan flavors, that’s a sure home run!

Moving on to the rice meals, we tried the Chipotle Chicken (Php265.00), Pork Belly (Php265.00) and Pork Barbecue Ribs (Php295.00). The Mexican rice was very flavorful and cooked to perfection. I really enjoyed the rice but the star of the meal would have to be the ribs. They were sweet and sticky, just the way I like it. They were also so tender that you wouldn’t need a knife to cut through them. Fall off the bone goodness!
