Que Pasa Cantina

When the owners of Que Pasa Cantina renovated the restaurant over a decade ago, they looked to Mexico for inspiration. As a result, the cantina feels like a portal to Mexico itself—tin and glass stars dangle from the ceiling, portraits of poppies decorate walls, and vibrant, striped blankets counterbalance dark woodwork. As for the menu, it strikes a balance between traditional and original. Among traditional options, margaritas contain hand-measured proportions of tequila and fresh lime, and posole brims with hominy, roasted chicken, and spicy tomato broth. A handful of the contemporary entrees rank among the most popular. In particular, the chicken enchilada casserole merges green chilies, corn, and cheese into a stick-to-your-sides entree that’s as comforting as a nap in a bed of mashed potatoes. The restaurant keeps eight Mexican beers on hand and four beers on tap.
