Mexican Food Factory Review – Marlton, NJ
Let me start off by saying that whenever I go to Chipotle, my burrito bowl ends up costing about $10. For $8.25 for lunch, I got a TON of food at the Mexican Food Factory. This was my third experience at a Mexican restaurant (no, Chipotle doesn’t count) and I was very impressed.
The meal started off with tortilla chips served with mild and spicy salsa. I believe they charge $1 for chips and salsa, but you can’t have Mexican food without it!
The Chicken Fajitas ($8.50) I ordered were a feast. Strips of chicken were served on a bed of sauteed green peppers and onions and a sizzling cast iron skillet.
On another plate was a tortilla bowl filled with toppings – lettuce, sour cream, cheese, tomatoes and guacamole – and even a slice of cantaloupe, which was quite refreshing after the meal. The bowl tasted more like those Chinese fried noodles they serve with duck sauce than a tortilla, but I preferred it that way. The bowl was crispy, flaky, greasy perfection! I’m not a sour cream fan, so they could have had less of that and more guacamole. Also, the only other time I had fajitas, they were served with rice and beans. They would’ve been a nice addition, but there was already enough food for leftovers.
The meal came with warm tortillas, so you could essentially make your own tacos, which was really fun!
The brightly colored walls of the Mexican Food Factory were decorated with portraits of Frida Kahlo, which I, as an art lover, liked. The booths were made of dark wood and there were wrought iron fences separating the bar area from the dining area, creating a tasteful setting, rather than a crazy one. No colorful lights, plastic cacti or flashy sombreros here.
The Bottom Line:
I really enjoyed my experience at the Mexican Food Factory. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was fitting and the waitstaff was attentive.
