Week 50: Hacienda Vieja

So following the blog you’ve noticed the recurring trends of BBQ places. Another common restaurant genre we frequent is Mexican restaurants. Our last Mexicano cuisine experience takes us to Hacienda Vieja, located on Presidential Parkway in Macon.

Guacamole, prepared fresh at your table

One of the unique things Hacienda Vieja offers is guacamole (which in itself isn’t unique). However, they bring everything right to your table and make it fresh on the spot in front of you. Hillarie thoroughly enjoys her guac, and is one of the reason we stopped here this week. And enjoy it she did, loading up each bite of her tortilla chips with a heaping mouthful. Matt isn’t a big guac fan, so instead he chooses to dip his chips in the standard salsa served complementary.

Pomegranate Margarita

Hillarie also went with an out of the ordinary choice, by trying a Pomegranate Margarita. On our cruise, we did a margarita tasting and there were a couple Hillarie really liked. Giving this a shot, she agreed that tequila is really not her drink of choice and will probably pass on future drinks.

fish tacos

For the entrees, Hillarie ordered Fish Tacos, served with a side of rice, a cup of Chicken Tortilla soup and a side of remoulade sauce. While she didn’t care of the soup, the tacos were a decent choice and something unusual from the same beef and beans shoved in a tortilla fare.


Matt sticks with this guns and ordered an Enchilada plate, smothered in cheese and red sauce. Going with the usual beef and beans shoved in a tortilla, he wasn’t too shocked when it was just an ok dish. Tasty, but nothing special or out of the ordinary.

I can’t say anything bad about the experience here, but I can’t say anything good either. The decor is pretty standard for a Mexican restaurant and the only thing that stands out in my mind is that they make guacamole right at your table. If you happen to be in the area, stop by and give them a try and feel free to drop a comment. Maybe we missed something on our first trip there.
