I went to Chronic Taco in downtown Boise opening night in July. Wee Man and crew were there along with 200 kids dying for him to sign their skate boards. That night I ordered a Carne Asada burrito with cilantro lime rice and black beans. No bueno. It was dry and lacked flavor. They literally put one small stripe of salsa on it. BUT...after convincing from a fellow blogger I went back today. I ordered the Carnitas Tacos because she said they rivaled the Baja Fresh tacos. I laughed at the mention but gave it a whirl. They were delicious. Not quite Baja delicious but really, really good. They were larger and a bit pricier but also had cheese, cabbage, sour cream and guac which Baja does not. (I do prefer the simple taco at Baja). BUT, the flavors today were wonderful! Insanely greasy but I don't know what else to expect from Mexican food. I would highly recommend the tacos there. I have heard the fish tacos are TDF although I don't plan to try them. :) They do have a Machaca breakfast burrito which I have every intention of inhaling some morning. Three cheers for the Chronic! And three forks for that matter.
