If you are visiting Jack Frost Big Boulder for some skiing this winter, you'll want to check out Marita's II for some good Mexican food. Located on Route 940 in the Pocono Pines, Marita's is a small Mexican restaurant with a great menu and exceptional service.
We had a wonderful meal there recently and I must say, we were pleasantly surprised at the menu and the food. I hesitate to eat at Mexican food restaurants because I really don't like hot, spicy foods. Marita's food is full flavored and includes all the typical menu choices of most Mexican restaurants, but the food is not overly spiced. Instead, they give you a bowl of chopped jalapeño peppers and a bowl of mild salsa along with a basket of tortillas when you are seated. This way you can have your food as hot as you'd like. I did not use any of the peppers and therefore I was able to enjoy my meal.
I order the steak and shrimp fajitas which came on a sizzling plate. Along with all the ingredients to roll my own fajitas were two tortillas, guacamole and sour cream. The portions were very large and I had a hard time finishing my entrée. I had coffee along with my meal which was very good.
The restaurant also has a bar and two TV's. The dress is casual and there were many families enjoying a meal as well.
If you like Mexican food I highly recommend Marita's II.
They do not have a website, but this is the information:
