Los Asados -- Harlingen
by Hugh Barlow
Los Asados is an older Mexican food restaurant in Harlingen. The service there is usually great, and many of the dishes are served on a cast iron platter that is blazing hot. Their specials are usually reasonable in price, the drinks are usually topped off frequently, and they serve bottomless chips and salsa.
Friday and Saturday nights are very busy, and the place is closed on Sunday. Lunch prices are usually less than dinner prices during the week with slightly smaller portions. The dinner plates are usually big enough for two meals.
Wait times are reasonable except on weekends. Occasionally, customers will have to wait for a table before they can eat. Lunch prices start at about $7.00 per plate with dinner and weekend prices starting near $10.00. There are family platters that have enough food to feed a family of four fairly well. Add the bottomless chips, and no-one will go home hungry. Drinks are a bit over priced, but they too are bottomless. If you drink a lot with your meal, then the cost may be worth it. If not, order water... it is free.
Los Asados is across the street from Memorial Middle School on Business 77/Sunshine Strip in Harlingen. It shares the parking lot with Peter Piper Pizza and the furniture store that is perpetually going out of business.
