OTV: And Yet Another Mex Food Place

Sometimes I find myself just sittin' around and wondering: "¿Que Pasa? Why don't we have more Mexican restaurants in this town!" OK, I lied. Didn't we just have three or so new Mexican eateries just swing open their doors?  According to my quick count, taco trucks and fast food included, there are approximately 43 places in the Cd'A-PF-Hayden area to choose from when your brain and tummy gang up on you and say "We need tacos right now". Yes, brains and tummies can speak in bold print.  It does seem a bit like overkill at times, but here's what I say: the more, the más feliz.  Driving up Lincoln Way yesterday en route to a routine colonoscopy, I noticed the sudden un-expected appearance of El Paisa Mexican Restaurant in the strip mall space that Donut House used to occupy (1801 N Lincoln Way)/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More here.

Question: Some of you may suspect that I posted this simply to include the line: "Driving up Lincoln Way yesterday en route to a routine colonoscopy ... " I take the 5th. But I'm curious re: how many different Mexican food places you frequent in town?
