In most houses, comfort food means meatloaf, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob—the foods your grandma made by the boatload when you were growing up. While we appreciate a good piece of fried chicken as much as the next guy—we’re in the Ozarks after all—in our opinion, comfort food is the stuff served south of the border! Chips, salsa, guacamole, burritos, chimichangas…when we are feeling sad or stressed, we shut down the home kitchen for the night and head straight to Cantina Laredo, order a frothy margarita, dip a fresh baked chip in a spicy bowl of salsa, and feel our entire body start to relax!
It’s rare to find a decent Mexican restaurant this far away from the Mexico border, and even rarer to find a chain restaurant that truly knows how to make the foods that make a Mexican restaurant stand out in the crowd, but Cantina Laredo has managed to do so! They don’t serve the cheesy sauce flooded meals you often find in chain restaurants, but rather they serve healthy versions of the Mexican standbys that are just as flavorful, created with only the freshest ingredients!
Anyone can throw some flavored meats, tomatoes, and lettuce in a taco shell and call it done, but Cantina Laredo takes the art of taco making to a new high! Their fajita tacos blend two of our favorite meals into one divine tasting treat, offering you a choice of chicken, certified Angus beef, or skirt steak that is lovingly served in a corn tortilla shell and topped with avocado, pico de gallo, cilantro and queso fresco. Is your mouth watering yet?
