Restaurant Review - La Pastorcita

I also dined at La Pastorcita (3304 Buford Highway, 404-325-5925) last week. Happily, a mariachi band was leaving as we arrived. I love everything about Mexico but its most popular music. Do not count on anyone speaking English here, either, but the menu is translated. "Mixed grills" are the specialty but, honestly, they tend to be overwhelming. I ordered one with carne al pastor, bacon, onions, mushrooms, jalapeños and cheese. Wayne ordered the zarape, which combines beef, ham, bacon and cactus with the onions, jalapeños and cheese. Eating a full plate of either, while quite savory, could harden your arteries before you get back to your car. We took half home and, actually, mine tasted better reheated a few days later. You'll also find decent tacos and the usual Mexican cliches here.
