One thing that I thought was funny about that place is that the guy who owned it was Jewish. You don't really think about Jews in such a pork-laden business.

I see there's a Mustard's at the library downtown, I might stop in and check it out sometime soon.

I talked with my dad earlier today and he said that the Mustards in Windsor Heights used to be across the street from where they are now. I think I might have eaten at the old one when I was a little kid but I barely remember it. He said they tore it down in 2000.

He also said that there used to be a Mustards at the corner MLK and Forest but they tore that place down back in 1993.

I like the chicken and leek pasties there. I don't really like the bar so much anymore as I don't drink and it seems like they tried to run myself and my ruffian friends out once they started getting a big "normal" crowd on the weekends. I guess I don't blame them...

I'm going to guess that you are looking for Cactus Mexican Food in NorWALK, Iowa. 1323 Sunset Drive.
