huevos rancheros in Hampton/Portsmouth NH Area

Any places I can fulfill this craving?

  1. Not very many good Mexican restaurants in the area.

    Margaritas (on US-1 near the traffic circle off I-93 exit 5) doesn't have huevos rancheros, nor (I believe) does Ixtapa Grill in Newington (Fox Run Mall).

    Closest that I know about is La Carreta in Manchester (also Derry), which has that on its menu for lunch.

    I also heard that there was a taco place in Kittery, ME, but I've never been there, and therefore don't know what it has/doesn't have.

    1. Locos Cocos in Kittery, Maine is excellent! It is in the "food alley" area of Route One. Going north take a right at the light. http://www.locococos.com/menu.php

      1. It's not mexican, but I'm pretty sure you can get huevos rancheros at Friendly Toast. They have lots of cool breakfast stuff.

          Also try Isis for brunch. They have a lot of interesting egg dishes. Not sure if they have huevos rancheros, though.

            They have huevos rancheros at the Friendly Toast, and from what I remember, they're quite tasty. I recommend getting them on Anadama bread. Delicious.

        2. Mmm... I haven't been able to fill my huevos craving either- glad you posted!

          Haven't had Loco Coco's HR, since I'm never in Kittery in the morning, but I love their enchiladas. if I were you, I would definitely try them first- I've never had anything there I didn't thouroughly enjoy (great salsa verde!).

          1. Actually, I'm pretty sure the Blue Mermaid in Portsmouth offers a pretty nice, if original, huevos rancheros.

            1. Loco Coco's is excellent and if you're looking for huevos rancheros, I'm sure their version will be the most authentic in the area. Plus, you can enjoy as much of their home-made hot sauce (they have 3 or 4 types) as you like. (Plus you won't have to worry about dealing with the infamous disgruntled servers at the Toast.)

                I would definitely give the 'friendly' edge to Loco Coco's over the Friendly Toast... don't get me wrong- I love the Toast (though not sure I would go there if I wanted real huevos rancheros- their food tends away from the authentic ethnic side). But Friendly, they are certainly not. I was once there with a friend who asked about the fish burrito, and the server all but gave her a lecture on the evils of meat-eating. Umm... no thanks.

              2. Colby's on Daniel Street in Downtown Portsmouth has it! I just had some the other day...terrific. Open lunch and breakfast.
