A trip to Joe's Taco Lounge

There is a lot of trial and error when searching for a good taco joint, one of my favorites is Joe's taco lounge in Mill Valley, California. Its a very funky little restaurant that I think used to be a diner. It is small with counter seating in the middle of the room, there is a narrow aile in the center for the waitstaff to serve. On one wall are shrines to deecated to Jesus and there is also a small narrow shelf that wraps around the restaurant filled with every kind of hot sauce bottle you can think of. Grab a few to try with your food, but if you want the real good stuff, ask the guys in the kitchen for the snakebite sauce (it will bite you and its deadly hot) The menu has all the usual tacos, burritos and enchiladas which are all really good.The desserts here are also good and are made with fruit sorbet served in there hollow fruit shells (mango, lemon, etc) For drinks go with a Mexican beer or sangria, skip the cheap box wine. For the kids there is a also good menu, have them try the "build your own" mini tostadas. A big plus to the location is the famous local dive bar next door (2AM Bar) watch a game on the big screens and then go next door to Joe's for lunch or a late night snack.
I give it 4 out of 5 points
