I would like to introduce all of my readers to the Subway of Mexican restaurants. A little something called Corona Village, the newest Mexican restaurant in Cheney. However, don’t let the name confuse you because there is no alcohol sold at the establishment. But if any of my readers out there could point me in the direction of a village made of Corona, I would be there in a second.
Cesar Herreros, the manager, sat down with me and gave me the details of the restaurant. Corona Village opened in March 2005 and has been doing very well ever since.
“People can just come in and have a good dinner, and that is what it is all about,” said Herreros.
When you walk in the door you will notice that there is a counter that is just like Subway, which makes the viewing of the food being prepared quite a nice twist to the normal sit-down family restaurant. Corona Village is a smaller restaurant with limited seating, but that does not take away from the size of the portions.
There is an item on the menu that is called the Super Macho Burrito, which is, I kid you not, the size of a small Nerf football.
Now, this meal is supposed to be made for two. However, I witnessed one customer consume an entire Super Macho Burrito!
The service at Corona Village is very fast, but unlike some fast-food restaurants, which easily screw up an order, they are timely and thorough.
Besides the buzzing atmosphere and inviting aromas, Corona Village’s food is flavorful and fresh. I tried a couple of different meals, one of which was the three taco meal, with the ground beef, and my friend ordered the tacos with chicken. The meals at Corona Village are exactly as they sound, which means that I got the three taco meal, and that’s it.
The meal was very good and the beef had a very rich flavor, especially accompanied by cheese and lettuce. The chicken also had a very rich flavor as if it had been marinating in sauce all day long.
My three taco meal cost $4.75 and the aforementioned super macho burrito is $8.95. There is also a children’s menu with very affordable options.
Corona Village is practical for students. It is within walking distance of the dorms and they accept EagleFlex.
“Pricing and quality is our goal here at Corona Village,” said Herreros.
