Mexican Restaurant

  1. A restaurant serving free chips and salsa with the exact same menu as every other restaurant serving free chips and salsa
  2. Home of the “hot plate”

Usage Example: “I love ‘Mexican Restaurant.’ They have the best burrito covered in cheese sauce, served with refried beans and rice.”

Background: The American Mexican Restaurant Commission sets certain guidelines to be observed by every low-priced, local Mexican restaurant. These guidelines are as follows:

  1. Greet customers with the phrase “Hola, amigos!” Use this phrase even if you are the child of Irish immigrants.
  2. Serve free chips and salsa.
  3. Adopt the universal Mexican restaurant menu. This menu must include:
    1. Numbered dinner meals
    2. Fajitas, Burritos, Tacos and Nachos
    3. At least 75% of the menu must be completely covered in cheese sauce
    4. All rice must be some shade of orange
    5. Fried Ice Cream
  4. For birthday celebrations, utilize a novelty sombrero.
  5. Fajitas must be generating a noise louder than 80 decibels when delivered to the table.
  6. There must be no less than 40 Corona advertisements within 20 feet of the front door.
  7. Be aware that 50% of your customers will think that they are fluent in Spanish, and will try to engage in Spanish conversations with you. Smile and humor them.
  8. Servers must repeatedly yell the phrase “hot plate” when delivering plates to the table. This warning must occur regardless of the actual temperature of the plates.
