I was walking through the Elmwood around noon and just dropped into this place for lunch. The people in there treated me like they had known me for 20 years. They gave me some samples of things they were making in the back, no place does that anymore. They gave me some insider info about what to order - the food was great. If I'm ever close the the Elmwood I'm coming back.
Picante is great. First, if you have children, this is a great place to bring kids. The food is wonderful- their chicken tostadas are a favorite. Their nachos are incredible, so is their tortilla soup. Their homemade chips are my favorite part of this restaurant- all of the food is great. Good bar with good margaritas. Outdoor seating.
This place may seem to be in middle of nowhere but they serve good food. I ordered the burrito and could not finish it and I have a big appetite. They also give you free chip and salsa. The softer chip is so good. You should also try the strawberry margarita, WOW.
