El Cabrito, Dexter, MO

After hiking around Mingo National Wilderness area, we wanted a good lunch. Unfortunately, Missouri doesn’t seem to offer a good (healthy) lunch, anywhere.  We had to drive to get to the first significant-sized town: Dexter.

Our increasingly useless Garmin GPS showed us a possible mexican restaurant: El Tapatio.  Once we arrived via GPS, we realized there were no restaurants in sight. Luckily, Dexter does have cell service, so we drove a half mile down the road to El Tapatio using Google Maps.

This time we at least ended up at a Mexican restaurant:  El Cabrito.

The staff is friendly enough, but the veggie options are quite minimal for vegetarian fare.  They only had refried beans, and no potatoes.  We ordered a taco salad and Burrito Special.  They both contained the exact same ingredients:  lettuce, tomato, sour cream, and runny grey refried beans.  At least the complimentary nachos and salsa were good.

Meh.  At least it wasn’t expensive.

We probably would have been better off finding a Subway.
