We recently had a relative come through the Minneapolis Airport with a 3 hour layover before heading on to their next destination.
Hmmm … what should we do with that time with them?
We decided to head out to a late lunch/early dinner with them. At first we thought we’d eat at the airport but it didn’t appear there were many options outside of the TSA security line.
There were a couple of options at hotels near the airport but they were a bit pricey.
So — we decided we’d go Mexican. It’s not often we have Mexican food as it’s not paleo friendly what with all the cheese they use — and who can pass up the nacho chips and warm tortillas? This was definitely going to be a “cheating” meal.
The restaurant is only 10-15 minutes from the Minneapolis airport. It looks small on the outside but has a good space on the inside.
We were waited on promptly so the service was good. There is a salad bar (see picture below) but none of us tried it so I’m not sure if it was good or not.
Besides booths, there are tables and the restaurant feels “open” and not crowded.
I had the Huevos Rancheros — it’s always a “safe” meal to have.
Overall, Las Teresitas is a nice restaurant with pleasant folk.
Here’s a link to their website: Las Teresitas
And here is their address and phone number — just in case you decide to go try it.
5748 34th Ave S, Minneapolis, Minnesota – 612.727.1791.
Enjoy if you go!
