I’ve only been to Mr. Mango once, but oh what a once it was.
It’s a colorful place, outside and in, staffed by socially friendly girls with bored looks on their faces and occupied by every customer conceivable in a place like Yuma.
Charming but gaudy regalia lines the walls, visual throwbacks to both American and Mexican culture from the past century, sometimes beyond.
The food and treats are delicious, and I can only expect the feeling of contentedness as I drank my Bishop, a scoop of ice cream over an icee, to turn into outright happiness when those dreaded summer months roll around.
They also have shrimp, if you’re into that sort of thing.
The place seems like a hip little corner store to cavort at after school, and the fact they mostly played Disney channel programs reinforces that. It’s friendly enough for the family and laid back enough for a group of friends. If you prefer to go it alone, that’s fine too. I think my reason for enjoying this place so much is it because it’s one of those shops that defines the psyche of Yuma.
Overall, a lovely outing for those lazy Sundays with no goal in mind.
