El Cabrito, located just off historic Route 66 on Euclid Ave in Vinita, features authentic Mexican cuisine in a quaint, family-friendly atmosphere. Order up a large guacamole for the table to share or try the guacamole salad while sipping a piña coloda or another mixed specialty drink from the bar.
Known for their delicious Poblano Relleno, El Cabrito’s huge poblano pepper stuffed with chicken and creamy asadero cheese is lightly breaded, fried to a crispy perfection and not to be missed. If you’re looking for a lighter menu option, try the Arroz con Camarones that features decadent grilled shrimp over a bed of Mexican rice topped with roasted red bell peppers and melted cheese. Carnitas, marinated pork tips served with rice, beans and fresh tortillas, is another favorite among the regulars, and the menu also offers up Mexican classics including mouthwatering enchiladas, chimichangas and chalupas.
For dessert, you can’t go wrong with flan, fried ice cream or a made-fresh-to-order cinnamon sopapilla.
