Daily Dining News: Best Mexican Dishes in Sac?


Sac Mag restaurant critic Kira O'Donnell has rounded up a list of her 13 favorite dishes at Mexican restaurants across the Sacramento region. Among her choices are:

Ernesto’s Mexican Food: Enchiladas Suizas - Enchiladas appear on practically every Mexican restaurant menu, and they’re often uninspiring. But these are a knockout, thanks to the electrifying green sauce that smothers the dish.
Tequila Museo Mayahuel: Chile Relleno de Queso - Delicate and light as a cloud, Mayahuel’s chile relleno is one of the restaurant’s finest dishes.
Centro Cocina Mexicana: Camarones y Calamares a la Parilla - For this enticing, light appetizer, chefs marinate Monterey Bay squid and shrimp in olive oil, serrano chilies and oregano, then quickly grill the meat, infusing it with a deliciously smoky flavor.

10 most popular midtown restaurants - Two things make a restaurant popular: lots of diners. And lots of passion.

In-N-Out on its way in near Arden Fair - The In-N-Out Burger location near Arden Fair is fully under construction, and the restaurant uses nothing of the former nearly new Romano’s Macaroni Grill that had been on the site. Mark Anderson in Sac Biz Journal.

Ravenous Cafe - I hadn't been out there in a few years (I ate at Ravenous last back when it was owned by Mark Helms, it's since been sold to Wade Sawaya) but had been curious to check it out again and hey, tonight would be as good of a night as any, right? I dialed and was greeted on the other end by a cheerful voice and was told that they could certainly accommodate us. We headed out to the Pocket area with our stomachs growling.

Dickey's Barbecue settles on Elk Grove location - Dickey's Barbecue Pit will be opening an Elk Grove location at 5110 Laguna Blvd. later this year. The chain started in Dallas in 1941. It opened its first local shop in Roseville more than two years ago, and another new Dickey’s is opening in Folsom at 1016 Riley St. in March or April. Mark Anderson in the Sac Biz Journal.


I can't believe anyone would recommend anything from Ernesto's. It's an awful restaurant, overpriced but more importantly the food is terrible. I cannot understand why so many people go there. You can get better and more authentic Mexican food at Jimboys!
