The salsa was alright, but I'm pretty sure the fajitas were previously frozen and reheated in el microwave...yum. Do yourself a favor and 1. get a flank steak 2. marinate in cumin,garlic powder, salt and pepper 3. grill it yourself
Villanelle, I am truly sorry that you did not like the fajitas. I can promise you that we do grill all of our meat ourselves. As for the type of meat that we use for the fajitas, it is a skirt streak. Skirt steak and flank steak are very similar in properties as well as consistancy.

It can be grilled or pan fried quickly with good results. Another traditional method is to stuff it, roll it, and braise it. In many areas of the country (Texas, for example) skirt steak is the only cut to be used when making "real" fajitas.
The flank steak is the traditional cut used for London Broil. It is long, thin, and full of tough connective tissue. It is usually marinated before being broiled or grilled whole. Because it is tough, you usually slice it thinly on a diagonal across the grain to sever the tough fibers and make the flavorful steak chewable.
The marinade that we use does include all of the ingredients that you listed, and then a few more. Personally, I like the fajitas, but I think we have other items that are even better!
If you ever are over this way again and want to give us a try, please look me up. I will be more than happy to show you my operation, and answer any questions that you might have, or assist in getting you a dish that you will enjoy.

Ashley, I am also sorry that you did not care for the items that you and your co-worker recieved. If you ever want to try it again, please let me know and I will make sure that we get you something that will be good and flavorful.
On, a menu note: We do now have vegetarian beans available all of the time for any of our vegetarian guests that would like them. We also are well versed in taking care of Gluten Free diets (We can make gluten free chips and tortillas!), and have no problem making special items if any guest would need or ask for them.
If anyone has any questions, please contact me.
