All I can say is.....Seafood Nachos. Huge portion, lots of shrimp, scallops, and minced crab meat. Absolutely one of the best things I've ever eaten. Nice clean restaurant located in Spencer's corner in the downtown Historic District. Very friendly service and reasonable prices. Not all Tex-Mex places are alike and Picante's is a cut above.

Bring your appetite, or plan on sharing - we ordered the baked potato fajita and it was wonderful! But enough for 3 people to share. Margaritas were very good too!

Our family ate here for lunch when we discovered the German restaurant was not open til 3. We are from Texas and get lots of great Mexican and Tex Mex. We each had lunch special, but would say the Razorback special was the best out of our party of 7. Chips were plentiful. Waiter seemed to miss some of requests,... More

In my hometown every Mexican restaurant tastes the same. Delicious, but the same. Picante was a great change. It was very clean, cozy, decorated and a fun atmosphere. It's located right in the middle of downtown HS and close to everything. The price was great and you get large portions. The food and service were also on point. I would... More

Absolutely loved this restaurant! The food was outstanding! The atmosphere and service were unbeatable! The restaurant is small and very cozy. Family friendly and very welcoming. Everything was mouthwatering delicious! The portions are ample for anyone and the price is lower than you would expect in a tourist area. Great value all the way around. We highly recommend this restaurant!

My Sugar Bear & I had been on a wonderful weekend get away, when we stopped in at Picante! Food was great! Very flavorful! Meat was seasoned perfectly! Service was attentive. Small place. Only disappointment was I ordered a margarita on the rocks, waiter brought it frozen. He offered to exchange it. I kept the frozen, wasn't my favorite so... More

Love the atmosphere, service was outstanding. We had the chicken quesadilla, price and serving size was perfect. The area around the restaurant was great for shopping, walking and learning the history of Hot Springs.

I live in Texas and I eat Mexican food 3 times a week. This by far is the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. I ordered a sample platter from the appetizer menu as my meal. Everything was delicious.

We've eaten here before and recalled the service and food were acceptable during that visit. This is NO LONGER the case. The Salsa was watery and bland. We had to beg for more chips. When my wife ordered her meal, we forgot to mention that we wanted the green tomatillo sauce. We tried to explain that when it was delivered... More
