Unbelievable! My son the firefighter told me about this place. "Hey dad have you checked out ?La Texanita"? It was featured a couple yrs back on dives and drive-ins w/ guy Feirrari ( i did not get the name of the food channel show or the host exactly right but you know what im talking about. I hadnt so i DID and I was blown away! This place is absolutamente outfrickenstanding!
Located in the Roseland area which is predominantly hispanic so of course its going to have the best of the cuisine La Texanita is short on exterior beauty but once yr inside and see the mix of gringoes and hispanics enjoying the food and feel the warmth and friendliness of the staff you immediately feel like yr in for something special.
I had shrimp diablo . it came w rice and salad and was perfect. A generous portion of shrimp tossed in the hot but not terribly hot sauce was accompanied by perfectly cooked and seasoned rice and a wonderful salad side w a subtle and not overbearing dressing. My wife alice had the shrimp blabla de ajo also extraordinary . we sat there and quietly ate both knowing we had discovered a very special restaurant and feeling very hip and in the know. all this and mexican beer for under $40 gracias y vendremos pronto!!
