El Rayo received 3½ stars in this week’s Taste & Tell review in the Maine Sunday Telegram.
BOTTOM LINE: Most items at this vibrant Mexican taco place, or Taqueria, cost $6 or less, and better, are great to eat – and the more expensive, delicious drinks, spiked with good liquor, reveal the owners’ roots in fine dining.
In addition to reviewing the restaurant, the article provides details on the owners plans for the old Popeye’s location “a long-term plan to demolish the old Popeye’s building up the street and build a Mexican dinner restaurant” and a mobile home now parked at El Rayo. “An Air Stream trailer is undergoing renovation and was intended to serve as a bar area for the outdoor seats, but it could be incorporated into a new addition” .
Taste & Tell has moved back to the Sunday paper after a few weeks in the new Wednesday Food & Dining section in response to requests from MST readers.
