The Jibba Jab:

Seductively Spicy. It’s always summertime and living is easy at Cantina Laredo, especially when you dine outside on their amazing patio sipping on a Casa Rita and nibbling on Chips and Salsa, which are one of the staples that I rate Mexican restaurants on, and this place does not disappoint. They give you two different salsas, one that’s roasted and served temperature hot, and the other is fresh and served chilled. Both are delicious and perfect with the super thin and crisp chips that accompany them. I also recommend ordering the Top Shelf Guacamole, which is made tableside to make a wonderful presentation and you know it's super fresh.  The avocados were so creamy and flavorful that we devoured the bowl in no time and almost ordered another, but our entrees were not far behind. MT and I shared the Enchiladas de Mole. Mole sauce is so intriguing to me firstly because of the dark chocolate color that will make any dish distinguished and also because of the taste, which is so rich and complex. Mole is definitely not a sauce for the weak and Cantina Laredo has a great one! The other two patrons at the table ordered Cheese Enchiladas, which were the best they had ever tasted, and Tortilla Soup, which was a letdown because the broth was way too thick and their just wasn't much flavor to it. Overall though, it was a great stop for a quick lunch before we headed to the 19th Annual New Vintage Wine Trail and Gallery in Grapevine!
