El Nuevo Mexicano

Restaurants, Mexican Lake View
4 out of 5 stars
(1user review)

How does a seemingly typical Mexican restaurant survive Lakeview’s changing landscape for more than 25 years? By being consistent with the simple stuff and throwing in a few specials every now and then. The regular appetizer menu is Anglo-ized and boring, so ditch that and go for the flaky beef empanadas from the specials list. Stick to that list for the delicious pomegranate margarita (made with real lime, not a mix) and the chicken enchiladas in smoky red mole. If there’s room, finish with the perfectly rich flan.
