El Mexicano Restaurante
Located in the heart of Perkins, El Mexicano Restaurante serves up some of the region’s best south-of-the-border savory foods with unique specials, southwest décor and an inviting atmosphere.
Attentive servers provide guests with complimentary white queso and fresh salsa that pair perfectly with crispy chips. The loaded menu includes El Mexicano specials, classic dinners, enchiladas, streak sizzling fajitas, and mariscos (fish) items.
Locals recommend you try the Alambre (Queso Fundido) - diced chicken and chorizo sautéed with red bell pepper, onions and mushrooms cooked in a hot skillet then crowned with Jack cheese, bacon and avocados and drizzled with sour cream sauce. Served with guacamole, sour cream and pico, the baja shrimp burrito, another favorite, is stuffed with grilled shrimp, sautéed onions and mushrooms, black beans, corn and Jack cheese then smothered with El Mexicano’s freshly made chipotle sauce. For a lighter menu option that’s full of flavor, try the garlic shrimp served on a bed of rice with an avocado salad or another of their delicious salad options.
If you like sopapillas, the ultimate strawberry sopapilla dusted with cinnamon and sugar and served on delicious chocolate sauce with strawberries and whipped topping is a must-try. Dessert lovers can’t go wrong with creamy caramel flan, apple taco chico or Abuelita’s Tres Leches cake for dessert.
