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.
