7 Underrated Menu Items at No Way Jose’s Mexican Cantina
Whether it’s your first time dining with us or you’re a repeat visitor, it can be hard to decide what to order since there are so many delicious options to choose from! If you’re feeling adventurous or simply like trying something new, consider some of these underrated menu items at No Way Jose’s Mexican Cantina:
1. Papa’s Mexican Pizza
This appetizer is our fun twist on pizza! Refried beans, seasoned ground beef, cheddar jack cheese, pickled jalapenos, black olives, diced tomatoes, and sour cream are layered between two fried flour tortillas. You can also request to add some guacamole for extra flavor. Papa’s Mexican Pizza is delicious and something different than your usual shareable plate of nachos!
2. Avocado Fiesta
Another appetizer on our menu that you may not have tried before is Avocado Fiesta. A fresh avocado is stuffed with shredded chicken and cheddar jack cheese, then deep fried in our tempura batter and served with spicy green salsa and el rancho sauce. It’s definitely a must for avocado lovers!
3. Sizzling Fajita Salad
Everyone knows and loves a loaded taco salad, but have you ever heard of a fajita salad? It’s the perfect lighter option for lunch or smaller appetites. Choose from grilled chicken or steak with sizzling peppers and onions served with garden salad in a fried flour tortilla bowl and your choice of dressing: blue cheese, ranch, honey mustard, salsa fresca, avocado dressing, or Italian dressing. We guarantee you won’t even realize you’re eating salad– it’s that good!
4. Queso Florentine
Mas queso– say no more! Our Queso Florentine Enchiladas are bursting with cheese and are also a great vegetarian option! You could also ask for shrimp or chicken to be added if you do prefer meat. Creamy spinach and cheddar jack cheese are baked in a sour cream sauce and chile con queso for rich, gooey, cheesy goodness.
5. Baja Shrimp Burrito
Switch up your usual burrito order with the Baja Shrimp Burrito! Inside a flour tortilla are marinated shrimp, Mexican rice, refried black beans, grilled onions, and peppers, topped with grilled pineapple, pico de gallo, and sour cream. This combination of flavors is bold and oh-so-good; it might just become your new favorite thing to order at No Way Jose’s Mexican Cantina!
6. Chicken Picante
You won’t regret trying the Chicken Picante! A grilled chicken breast is stuffed with chipotle cream cheese and baked in picante sauce and fresh cilantro. Every meal is served with Mexican rice, refried beans, and sweet corn masa, making this another dish made with authentic and fresh ingredients. It’s what we’re famous for!
7. Ultimate Tacos
Don’t assume these tacos are your average, everyday tacos– they’re called “ultimate” for a reason! Two crunchy taco shells are wrapped in flour tortillas with melted cheddar jack cheese, filled with seasoned ground beef, lettuce, and pico de gallo, and served with el rancho sauce.
