Memos Mexican Food Restaurant

13004390175_47d9edb932_hMemos Mexican Food Restaurant at 1703 6th Ave, Tacoma, WA 98405 is the newest Memos location. Previously it had been It’s Great to Me and they have moved across the street. Dear husband and I shared a fish taco and a Washington Burrito (steak, cheese, salsa and potato). It was more food than we could eat and really tasty. With a churro dessert, the bill came to just over $10. Their menu is here.
