Hola! ¿Como Esta?
Who doesn’t enjoy a little Mexican fare every now and again?
Having visited many restaurants in the area with menus dedicated to this very type of food, this particular restaurant makes me feel like I am at home, rather than just stopping in a random restaurant for a meal.
From the outside, Los Primos may look like a random shop in a Strip Mall, but once you step through the doors, the smell of fajitas permeates the air, making you feel hungry almost instantly.
Warm smiles greet you at the door and someone ushers you to a cozy booth that are comfortable, spacious and welcoming.
As soon as you are seated by the greeter, a server is often right behind them, ready to serve you with hot chips and fresh dipping sauces.
There is an additional server who makes his rounds and offers to make you fresh guacamole, which he makes tableside, for tips.
As a usual customer, the servers remember your face and offer their pleasantries and welcome you back. They seem to ‘just know’ what you want to order, but offer you to option to change your mind, in the off chance you want something different from their extensive menu. The service is always friendly, respectful and timely.
Drinks are constantly replenished, often without you needing to flag someone down to ask, and they seem to genuinely care that you are happy with your menu selections. It is nothing new to be in and out within an hour – feeling full, not rushed out the door, and happy with your experience.
I have never been disappointed with a Friday evening visit to Los Primos. If you ever find yourself in the Mount Pleasant area of Chesapeake, Va., give them a try. You will be glad that you stopped by!
