At Los Jalapenos Mexican Restaurant, the staff knows how to make each diner feel welcome. This means they serve with kind attention, but not too much, so diners can focus on having a conversation with their companions or the face they've painted on their plate with salsa. Owners Esteban and Leticia sate appetites with a menu of traditional Mexican fare culled from generations-old recipes, including classics such as fajitas, tacos, and grilled chicken smothered in mole. Between bites at the Carrollton location, diners can also catch a live musical act, including an Elvis impersonator who unfurls his cape one Friday a month.
With the desire to recreate meals that we have enjoyed since childhood, we originated the concept of Nuevo Leon Mex-Mex Restaurant. We want to share with you the meals of a true authentic Mexican cuisine; we have original recipes that reflect the cuisine of Guanajuato and Monterrey.
Qdoba's burrito baristas handcraft a menu of Mexican-inspired cuisine, customizable with a panoply of fresh ingredients. Qdoba's culinary crafters create succulent additions to burritos, tacos, and salads, such as slow-roasted pulled pork, adobo-marinated grilled steak or chicken, and spiced shredded or ground beef, with vegetarian options also available for each dish. Diners can bite through the warm shells of three tacos brimming with grilled chicken, steak, or seasoned beef, or mine for black beans and sweet corn within the taco salad’s crunchy tortilla bowl quarry. A festive burrito dinner allows eaters to customize burritos with add-on ingredients, including three-cheese queso or a creamy, hand-smashed guacamole that's ideal for filling up Queen Elizabeth's diamond-studded guacamole chalice. Warm tortilla soup and its crisper cousin, the tortilla chip, let pairs slurp with camaraderie or construct solid foundations for tortilla-chip houses.
The centerpiece of Abuelo's menu is its paella ($13.50 per person; serves 2¬–4), Spain's most iconic, ubiquitous, and hard-to-make-right rice dish. Abuelo's makes its own version with basmati rice and serves it up either Valencia Clásica (saffron, a melody of seafood, beef sausage, chicken, and fresh vegetables) or Roja Caliente (spicy tomatoes, risotto rice, seafood, and fresh vegetables). Paella is naturally made for group dining, as are tapas plates of batata brava (spicy potatoes), carne con escalivada (tender beef with roasted eggplant, Italian squash, and fresh herbs), and Abuelo's plato con queso (a variety of Mediterranean cheeses, grapes, strawberries, apples, walnuts, almonds, and olives). Abuelo's also offers Lebanese mezes such as fried falafel, hummus, and dolmah yalangy (stuffed vine leaves with rice, herbs, tomatoes, and lemon). Tapas are $6.50 each, and you can get five tapas for two people for $19.50 per person.
