“Best Mexican/Southwestern in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

In Farmington, Mexican and SW cuisine is really hit or miss at the local restaurants. The bigger places tend to fall flat at best. Que Rico is a welcome change.

The inside is the usual colourful Mexican decor, which I like, but others may find a bit gaudy and typical. The service is fast and friendly. The salsa is delicious and fresh tasting, while the Mexican slaw is tangy and spicy. I ordered the tacos camarones and they were tasty and piping hot. Even the beans were yummy. BF had a combo plate and the chile relleno was good along with the rest of his meal. I have impossibly high standards for guac, and Que Rico's version passes the test.

I would recommend this place rather than a couple of the other bigger places in town.
