Gardunos Restaurant and Cantina Apr 29, 2008
This restaurant has the typical Mexican food selections to tempt your taste buds with its southwestern Mexican food. It has traditional fajitas, rellenos, chimichangas, and hand rolled tamales, here is where they step out of the box with gumbos, gourmet chili, Chilean sea bass, an oyster bar, and build your own margaritas.
The atmosphere provides a delightful enchantment with high ceilings, colonnade of bronze, life size horses across the ceilings, fountains, gothic lamps and oversized candles.
For a late authentic Mexican dinner stop by after 8pm and enjoy the performance of the mariachis while sipping on a coconut margarita. The coconut margarita is an experience in its own with the rims of the glasses, lightly dipped in honey and smothered in roasted coconut flakes. If you are not a coconut fan well shame on you, might I suggest the sangria margarita which one of the waiters offered one evening, it was unexpected and delightful.
The food is enjoyable but I find that a bowl of Chile con Queso and a margarita keeps me occupied while I take in the atmosphere and chat with friends. The Chile con Queso has a surprise for the typical Queso lovers but adding Hatch Green Chile for a unique taste that is hard to find elsewhere.
Basically, this restaurant provides a good night out, reasonable price, and amazing atmosphere.
