where i need to be
i just wanted to say hi to everyone and i will be there soon !!! i cant help it.... the island keeps calling me and i think i am going to give in lol so a girl from Galveston, Texas is heading your way 🙂 Good Day....
As of right now Croix but things may change that Thomas is my home (job reasons that is up in the air)....
It's SAINT Croix, salt.
It's SAINT Croix, salt.
Before we moved down here we often referred to it as "The Croix." 😎
Somebody else who posted briefly here used to call it Croix as well.
Always good to have another texan on isle, welcome! 🙂
Go out to all your favoirite mexican retaurants you can before you come, its all yankee mexican down here, no idea what they're doin. 😉
I'd be happy just to have some good yankee mexican!
Juanita yer a great lady but good yankee mexican is an oxymoron. 😉
lol. OK, how about...I'll just take Mexican without the car wash pressure washer in the background! (Cohiba on STX)
I'll take 'STX local history' for a $1,000 Alex.
Just for curiosity does any one know why it's Saint Croix? Croix is french for 'cross', and while I'm familiar with St. Thomas and St. John (several of them actually), I've never heard of a St. Cross. Seriously odd little trivia like this fascinates me if anyone knows please share.
The Indian name was AY-Ay - Columbus named it Isla de Santa Cruz in 1493 during his second voyage - Island of the Holy Cross --- before he saw the Virgin Islands which were named by him after St Ursula and her 11,000 Virgins - the French translated this to St Croix - during their occupation 1650-1733 - [when it was sold to Denmark]
Interesting Zero. Thanks.
thank you feel a Little more educated now! hope everyone has a great day!! so glad we have our own support system on here like this it really is nice 😀
Yeah, bad Mexican here, first place I visit when I go home to Texas is a good Mexican place 🙂
The new Mexican restaurant that opened above Mollys a week or two ago is not that great either. The jalapenos tasted like green peppers 🙂
So no one likes Luncheria on STX? I thought it was pretty tasty, even if it is more Americanized Mexican.
Prob with Luncheria is the inconsistancy & food quality.
One day you can go there & it's really decent & the next time, your order is completely fubared.............
I've never had a bad meal at Luncheria...I think it's a great place (as long as the chickens aren't too aggressive that day!).
the only problem with Luncheria is the parking. the food isn't too bad for being so far East:P
i will eat up then... a girl cant get enough mexican food 🙂
Yeah, make sure you do get your fill. I did not do that before coming here (I am from South Texas) and I miss some good spicy Mexican food. I have yet to find a good plate of greasy cheese enchiladas. I have given up 🙂
Yep, ya gotta make your own. I've gotten all my Mom's and aunts recipes, I have friends over once a month for Mexican Night! Woohoo! Love it!
All I gotta say about Luncheria, is if you think thats good you've never had real mexican food, bad mex tex at best.
