Full disclosure: I know the manager pretty well. But that doesn’t get OSO off the hook for not having bear tacos. Until they start serving bear tacos, they should really change their name. But, I digress . . . .
I stopped by for a quick lunch and had a couple of tacos, one slow-cooked pork and one slow-cooked beef. The tortillas are alright but nothing special, and the slow-cooked meats were almost too tender, as if you could press the meat together and form it into any particular shape (provided that you’re good at sculpting meat). They’re certainly not anywhere near the quality as Big Star in Chicago, but maybe that’s an unfair comparison.
All of the toppings taste fresh, but the tacos don’t need the creamy sauce given the fattiness of the meat and cheese. The rice and beans are passable as well, but nothing to go and blog about.
For some white-guy cooking, I guess they’re doing alright.
