This is one of our favorite restaurants. The décor is whimsical and rustic, blue spotted cows hanging from the ceiling fans, racks of cowboy boots, wooden tables and chairs and red booths. The menu is mostly New Mexican but has some home cooked surprises like apple slaw and meatloaf. We’ve had many items on their menu and without exception everything is delicious. This time, we ordered two salads – the Rio Rojo with chicken, and the Steak and Shrimp Fajita salad.
Rio Rojo salad – Fresh greens with chunks of gorgonzola cheese, grape tomatoes, artichoke hearts and grilled chicken, topped with “frizzled” onions, which are basically deconstructed onion rings. Served with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. The dressing was scrumptious and we got it on the side but used most of it over the salad. A good hearty salad that we’ve had with sliced steak and highly recommend. Rating – Delicious!
Steak and Shrimp Fajita salad – Fresh greens with grilled peppers and onions, parmesan cheese and tortilla strips, served with chipotle Caesar dressing. The dressing was very thick and rich and we ordered it on the side. We ate very little because a little went a long way. This was a good salad but there were a lot tortilla strips so you might ask to have them put only half on. Rating – Delicious!
