St. Louis had their first taste of original Mexican food in 1975 when Casa Gallardo Mexican Restaurant opened and started St. Louis raving about the wonderful taste of Mexican cuisine. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant to enjoy real authentic Mexican cuisine with a Grande House Margarita. Casa Gallardo has several locations in the St. Louis area, which includes the location I visit, located at 6600 N. Illinois Street in Fairview Heights, Illinois right off I-64.
The menu is loaded with specialties of fajitas that come sizzling to your table, macho burritos, tacos, carnitas, outrageous chimichanga, and of course my favorite the enchilada rancheros. The entrées are served with rice and beans, loads of chips and salsa, and the most delicious sweet corn cake you have ever tasted. The best way to start my dinner is by ordering the fresh guacamole made right at the table. I love this dip with the great fresh chips, and luscious margarita. The prices are very reasonable starting at $7.99. You have to save room for the flan which is custard dessert served with a delicious Carmel sauce.
The hostess and servers greet you with pleasant smiles, wanting to accommodate your every need to make your dining experience unforgettable. The ambiance of the old cantina is so charming, you would think for an evening you have traveled to Mexcio. To learn more about what Casa Gallardo has to offer go to http://www.casagallardo.com
