Restaurant Details

Que Rico is a Mexican restaurant with Argentinean and vegetarian influences that come together in, for instance, an empanada stuffed with spinach or other veggies. Berenjenas al ajo is like an Argentinean baba ghanoush-bright green eggplant chopped with a little garlic and lemon. Balitas de fuego are jalapenos stuffed with Chihuahua cheese, batter dipped, and fried-in other words, poppers. Alongside Tex-Mex chimichangas, burritos, and fajitas, the menu is heavy with predictable traditional Mexican selections, but what it lacks in originality it makes up for in freshness, though seek ye elsewhere for Scoville units. I asked our server to bring us the hottest item on the menu, and he recommended the enchiladas picosa; honestly, you couldn't break a sweat eating this dish unless you consumed it sitting on a sunny day in front of this restaurant's charming French doors. Margaritas are available by the glass or in pitchers, whipped up with regular, super, or superpremium tequilas (as you might suspect, such quality distinctions hardly make a difference when you mix your tequila with lime, sugar, and salt).
