The Original Taco House

3550 SE Powell Blvd (via D-Dish)
Me: Jalapeno Poppers, Old Fashioned Tamale with Onions, Tortilla Soup.
Spousal Unit: Cheddar Cheese and Onion Enchilada, Mexi-bowl.
Note: We ordered a side of REAL sour cream, since we were out.

It should be a clue when the menu says "real" sour cream, as if that's a treat. Above is what we ordered, but the enchilada was quite absent from the box where we suppose it should have been. So, lots of rice and beans. But that considered, The Original Taco House was pretty much as expected--just basic american mex, nothing special.

The pico de gallo that came with the meal was good for mixing with the rice and beans to cut the smokey flavor of chipotle, which the Spousal Unit hates. The poppers were decent, and the tamale perfectly edible. The soup was heavy with cilantro, which I cannot stand--but I figure I take my chances at any Mexican eatery. There was plenty to eat. This is the place you order from when you want non-fancy volume. For a little over $30, we ate for days.

Just make sure they get your order right.
