Dear Coeur d’Alene Press: As a Coeur d’Alene native of almost 50 years I was surprised to hear that in your Cinco de Mayo write-up there was no mention of the Mexican Food Factory being a place to get tacos. I was also surprised that being established in 1981 that someone else was named the oldest operating Mexican restaurant in town. The Mexican Food Factory at 410 N. Fourth on the corner of Fourth and Birch is a Coeur d’Alene Institution that people have been going to for multiple generations (some regulars as much as 3-5 times a week).
I know that the Coeur d’Alene Press is aware of its existence because a one-time food critic for The Press actually did a write-up on the wonders and joys of this great family-run business. Please get your facts together and print a retraction.
