My daughter and I walked past Five Palms in search of take-out food. As is common in Sonora, a man beckoned us to come inside and enjoy some fine food.
The man was pleasant enough, so we went inside to the bar and ordered shredded beef tacos and quesadillas to take back to our hotel.
While waiting for our food, I spoke with the owner for 15-20 minutes. He told us of his real estate interests in San Carlos and how he was hoping to revamp the Five Palms into something special. He told us that he had attended the University of Arizona for a spell, refining his knowledge and skills.
It may seem odd, but hanging out with a restaurant owner at the bar, and chatting it up was a highlight, of many, while staying in San Carlos. Plus, my daughter of age 11, got her first experience of sitting at a bar and watching football without a bunch of hooligans surrounding us.
The food was very good and reasonably priced, The bottled beer was ice cold and excellent.
When I go back to San Carlos, I will certainly go to the Five Palms. I hope the place is booming.
