Middletown Mexican

Middletown, Delaware is all I fear in America. To the casual observer, the town seems to have been conceived and built entirely by hired planners, with no actual people (just consumers) in mind: every cookie-cutter subdivision is stamped out within calculated proximity to the nearest grocery store, strip mall, gas station, and Wal-Mart. It is the opposite of charming.

It was surprising, then, that when hunger pains hit halfway through Middletown on our way up the eastern seaboard, we found great Mexican food in one such strip mall. Tequila’s, as it was so creatively named, had fresh salsa, swift service, mole with truly deep, dirty flavor, and real lardy refried beans. Next time you’re in the area (it’s close to where the New Jersey Turnpike terminates on the south side), give it a try.
