One thing Zesty Mexican Bar & Grill is not is just another Tex-Mex restaurant. Recently we opened in Richardson TX. Zesty's menu includes not only Chicken and Beef fajitas that we all love, but also novelties such as Mexican pizza Veracruz Potato Cakes and Goat/Lamb stew with chipotle.
Menu runs from $6.95 for chilies rellenos to the priciest item, "zesty tilapia" for $10.99.
Our goal was to avoid opening another typical Tex-Mex in the neighborhood, rather having the combination of Best of both worlds Tex-Mex and Authentic that is why we incorporated some regional recipes from Mexico and some dishes from Veracruz, because that region has such versatile characteristics compared to rest of Mexico. We incorporated traditional ingredients such as his goat and lamb stew in our Menu.
The menu also incorporates some quirky dishes with broad appeal, such as Mexican pizza but here given a more careful approach. We bake a 12-inch flour tortilla at 450 degrees in a commercial oven and make it very crispy, Restaurants who make this dish usually fry [the tortillas], but we bake them. We top the tortilla with a spicy tomato sauce that we make in-house, cheese and, instead of the usual ground beef or diced chicken, we use brisket.
There are also unique vegetarian options such as Veracruz potato cakes served with salsas and pickled jalapeño.
The potato cakes, I think are the best in Dallas-Fort Worth has this on our menu; we boil and mash potatoes, then add spicy jalapeños, roasted corn and cheddar cheese. Then we either fry them or bake them at the customer's request. We garnish with cilantro, chilies and lemon. It's one of the finest items we have.
Here at our Zesty we offer great ambience, freshly cooked Lunch and Dinner very reasonably priced. We offer variety of salsa with chips to greet our Guest and we have a full service Bar with Twelve varieties of Beer on Draft with probably the lowest prices of Draft Beer in the DFW area. Draft Beer in offered in 10oz, 16 oz, one liter, two liter and three liter sizes. We also have numerous varieties of cocktails and margarita’s to serve.
We love to be at your service.
