Yesterday, I was walking along in downtown Boise, and I thought to myself: I want an alarmingly large pile of meat, rice and beans, but no restaurant serves that. And I felt a little bit sad.
But then, at that very moment, I turned and saw a sign pinned outside El Gallo Giro on Main street. It said that they serve all-you-can-eat Mexican food for $9.43 on Tuesdays.
And it was Tuesday.
Take that, atheists.
I haven’t always been an outspoken El Gallo supporter, but this buffet is a taco night fever dream stuffed into a Tuesday afternoon. This is special. There’s at least six types of meat, hard and soft shell tortillas, little complimentary bean bowls, verde salsa with a little zip… they even have a bin full of quesadillas.
And, may I remind you… it is All. You. Can. Eat.
Which means the only thing between you and happiness is your sense of personal shame. ∎

Ok, Henry I want you to try Gil’s K9 , I think on 26th and Fairview. Friday and Saturday night they serve a gigantic shrimp and crab salad. Get there early!
The photos of that shrimp and crab salad look absolutely monstrous. I will begin my preperatory fasting shortly.
