Named for the indigenous peppers dwelling in the Mexican state of Puebla, Poblanos uses the freshest ingredients for its selection of south-of-the-border sustenance. Vaqueros exhausted from a day of roping piñatas can unwind with a libation from Poblanos' extensive bar, such as the Margarita Poblano ($9) or a pitcher of the house margarita ($16.99), as they nosh on the restaurant's complimentary chips and salsa. Come entrée time, diners have no lack of flour-tortilla'd options, as Poblanos boasts an array of burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and enchiladas. The grilled-steak Burrito Grande ($9.99) rolls meat, onions, beans, rice, queso dip, lettuce, tomato, and sour cream into a zesty zarape, while the Tacos Suprema ($8.99 for two tacos, $9.99 for three), available in both hard shell and the easier-to-talk-to soft shell, can be stuffed with ground beef, shredded chicken, or refried beans. Diners with eyes and stomachs in comparably large sizes can opt for the chimichangas ($8.99 and up), which account for the third-largest land mass in the state of Florida at any given time.
