Carolina's Mexican Cuisine (Dallas)
Has anyone tried the new Carolina's Mexican Cuisine at Rosemeade and George Bush? I've heard good things and we are going with some friends tonight, but was hoping for some recomendations on the menu. I heard the patio is great and that they really upgraded the place from when it was Case Caliente. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
The Brisket Tacos are great, a lot like Mias, but you get 4 smaller ones instead of 2 big ones. The La Bomba is their margaritta special and it's great. Better than the Mambo Taxi! The patio is really cool and huge. Going back this weekend to check out the night scene as they tell me it turns into a nice bar/dance scene.
Also, their salsa is good. Ask for the house salsa as well, spicier. This is always the way to root out the bad mexican restaurants. And this doesn't appear to be one.
I went there and tried the Chicken Enchildas with Mole sauce. If you like mole sauce, you will love them. Sometimes people aren't fans of mole sauce, and their mole sauce is flavorful. The chips were good and the salsa was decent. I was there for lunch and had some time (that is my excuse for eating dessert at lunch) so I tried their leches cake and it was surprisingly good. They were mentioned on the Eats Blog last week and it is the Mi Cocina co-founder's new place and you could tell because everyone was on the ball especially for a new restaurant. I didn't get to try to the patio because it was 2,000 degrees over the lunch hour, but will have to go back there some night and check it out.
Back to report. Already been back twice since my original post. Tried the Brisket tacos and agree, they are very good. The ceviche is a must as well! Tried things from their authentic menu as well as the Tex-Mex side and both are very different and very very good. Thanks as well for the tip on the salsa and the La Bomba! Both are now staples when we return. Really wanted to sit on the beautiful patio, but everytime we went it was like 115 degrees outside! We've invited friends from all over town since it's at the 2 tollway intersection and makes a great middle ground. Looking forward to going back again!
Food is good quality
Food is quite tasty and a reasonably authentic representation
Their update of the interior was done tastefully.
Location Location Location. There have been many ..... restaurants in this location and many have failed.
Slight musty smell due to the above no doubt
Food is a bit pricey for lunch and for the neighborhood for that matter.
In summary the food is good, the prices are high for the area. We will see if they can make it in this location.
