Cultural Narrative: 

Here's the bar area where you can order one of Tobby's awesome margaritas. They have lime, strawberry, cucumber, mango, and cranberry! Not into margaritas? That's okay, they've got cervezas covered, too. Here's the Mexi-Mart! It's a lot smaller than it used to be, but it still holds the classic Mexican snacks and beverages like Takis, tortilla chips, salsa, guacamole, Tapatio sauce, helados, jarritos, and many more goodies! They've got burritos, tortas, enchiladas, combination name it, they serve it! They serve elotes. It's a yummy snack made with corn, mayo, sour cream, chili powder, cotija cheese, and lime juice. If the elote didn't fill you up, you can try one of Tobby's famous tortas! This one's got steak, bacon, egg, cheese, and lettuce. If you're coming in with a group, try the mini taco platter! You can mix and match meats to your group's liking. If you're coming in extra hungry than this is the dish for you! It's the most popular item on the menu and it's easy to see why. It's got steak, chorizo, ham, bacon, jalapeno, and onion, all grilled on a skillet and served with melted cheese on top! Yum! Before we end the tour, sit back and relax and enjoy one of Tobby's signature Margaritas. This one's mango, but they've got four other flavors you can try, either frozen or on the rocks. ¡Salud!
