Eating at Platas in Barstow Cali after a long day of hiking and geology #wkugeology #mojavetripwku #foodie #dinner
This was one of the best moments on the trip. I was very homesick and Mexican food is very much home for me. I also ordered in Spanish which rocked.

Hello everyone, Damien here and this past Sunday I ate out at a Mexican restaurant in the small town of Russellville, Ky. Now I love good Mexican food and I am really picky about it. I entered the place after having heard rumours of its greatness.
First out was chips. Standard fare, the tortilla chips had a wonderful crunch to them, but the salsa lacked the kick I expect in a Mexican restaurant.
We ate a basket and a half of chips by time the food arrived. We had ordered the burrito verde, a chicken burrito with green salsa. It came with rice and a salad. I did not care for the salad and requested an order for a side of refried beans. The burrito was average. It wasn’t overly spicy. The food overall was about a 7 out of 10.
The restaurant itself was well maintained with clean bathrooms. The service was consistent in checking on us. They made sure we had plenty chips and salsa. Over all the place had a good feel and I would likely go again. A total of 8 out of 10 is my rating. If you live in the area or just craving Mexican food El Molcajete is a good spot to eat.
