Mesero’s slogan is “Mexican Spirit. American Life.” After visiting, it’s more than suiting.
The interior of this restaurant deserves recognition along with its food. Large spacious dining areas lit by large windows provide natural light. During the day there is a sense of serenity, while at night it provides an air of intimacy.
If you go on Saturday around early afternoon, you’ll be seated immediately. Dinner time you may have a short wait. Chips are in small metal containers, which definitely helps with the overeating before your meal. There are 3 salsas as well which seems to be the new trend. There is your standard tomato salsa, one that was mango or pineapple based, and a verde salsa with avocado (my favorite.) All were delicious.
I had the pollo tacos made with slow-simmered achiote chicken, iceberg, roma tomato, avocado, onion, arroz rojo, cheddar cheese. There are two per dish. I expected street style tacos with corn tortillas. But these were larger than that. Two tacos with rice and a cabbage salad (?) were plenty for me. They came out piping hot. The chicken was juicy and well seasoned.
At the end of the meal, the waitress brought a little sample of their renowned pastel cinco leches cake. It was heavenly, perfectly moist, and not too dense. I will have to order a full slice next time I visit.
