Great Mexican food. The steak was very tender and well seasoned. Everything was delicious. The portions were ample and the price was reasonable.

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

Great salsa, great food! Waitress was not the friendliest, but brought food out fast. Family friendly and easy parking. Would eat there again.

Underwhelmed at the service and food. Probably won't return if in the area. Jalapeño poppers were grocery store variety. The margaritas contain an additive that doesn't agree with my stomach.

I went to Picante's for lunch because Subway was simply too crowded. The chips were great, but the 'salsa' tasted like and had the consistency of a spiced ketchup. I ordered a chicken enchilada with rice and beans. The enchilada was okay, but I'd never been served rice like this before. The rice was mixed with diced carrots, Lima beans,... More

I cannot stress enough how amazing the staff was! We have a very picky eater in our group who does not like Mexican food and our server made him up a special grilled chicken meal. The margaritas were wonderful as well.

The Razorback Special is delicious and I make two meals out of the serving size. The price is right and they are quick to get the food on the table. It is a "go to" spot for our office outings.

We were going to the German restaurant that has changed names and owners. So we decided to check out the New Mexican restaurant. What a great idea this was. Th service was fast and caring. The food was the best Mexican I have had in long time.
