Dos Patrones

Dos Patrones pumps out some delicious chicken and beef flour tacos. They season and cook their meat very well, and the jalapeño and habanero salsas make the dish that much better.

Small businesses of all kind have an upper hand on the corporate giants that goes beyond what the giants’ financial backing could muster: human touch.

For instance, why is the giant chain Chick-fil-A so popular? My theory is that every time you enter a lobby or a drive-thru line at the “Eat Mor Chiken” joint, you can expect to be treated well, to eat well and to feel like you are home.
