Madre’s is located in Downtown St. Augustine. It caught my eye as my wife and I were walking around checking the shops. It looked slightly different than any of the other food chain type of establishments around.
Its food is Mexican by way of California which I’m ok with as long as the ingredients are good. I should have probably ordered the jalapeno poppers which are probably the largest I’ve ever seen and from what I can tell homemade. I was gonna go for a burrito til I saw a burger with chorizo on the menu. Plan changed.
I was pretty excited to find this. It wasn’t a standard burger either because after a few bites I noticed the chorizo wasn’t really worked into the ground beef. I’m still not sure if that was intentional or not. The Chorizo Burger was almost like a chorizo jucy lucy. It has a real potent chorizo taste which was slightly defused by the regular ground beef. This was a great burger find in the unlikeliest of places but I’ll hopefully get a chance to try those poppers next time I’m in town.
