That’s a Tasty Bullfrog
After a tiring morning of soccer matches, my dad and I had lunch at Mexicali Bullfrog. Why aren’t more Lincolnites talking about this place?
Location is probably one of the reasons. Tucked into a strip mall on the southwest corner of 70th and O, Mexicali Bullfrog isn’t exactly visible. Nor is it very large. There’s one table (3 chairs), one counter (3 stools), and one spool (3 seats). Yes, I said spool, as in college student living room. The interior is nicely decorated with a bit of a rainforest feel.
My dad and I both had the Poison Dart Burrito, a large spinach tortilla filled with chicken, ground beef, lettuce, and salsa. I really enjoyed my burrito, and I think my dad probably would have enjoyed his more if it hadn’t fallen apart on him. A piece of advice: keep the burrito wrapped up in the wax paper as long as possible to help prevent the problem my dad experienced. Also on the menu are tacos, enchiladas and a couple other Mexican-inspired favorites.
Overall I was pleased with the experience, and I plan to go back. Given the choice between the nearby Taco Inn (our original destination) and Mexicali Bullfrog, I’ll take the latter every time. It’s hard not to make comparisons with Paul’s BBQ (48th and Pioneers) because both restaurants began out of the back of a truck. I didn’t discover either one until they had their permanent locations, and I think both have the potential to do well.
