With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, I thought I'd take a look at some options for Mexican dining. Next month, I'll be featuring restaurants with outdoor seating. If you know of a great one or have an idea for a future story, post a comments on the wall of my Facebook page.
IN A WORDPochito's Restaurant & Cantina
33 S. Commercial Street Manchester
Tucked away in the you'd-never-know-it's-there location of the former Commercial Street Fishery on the way to the Fisher Cats' stadium and the Hilton Garden Inn.
$2 for an individual taco to $14.95 for an entree.
This is a convenient spot to grab a bite before or after a Fisher Cats game, but get there early to secure a seat.
Shorty's Mexican Roadhouse
Manchester & Nashua
Both locations are a mash-up of Mexican styling and diner decor.
$6.99 for an individual taco to $14.95 for an entree. Haddock is fresh, not frozen.
Try their famous River City Beans, which are especially great in a taco salad.
Pedraza's Mexican Restaurant
45 Central Square Keene
A popular spot for a quick bite in Keene, Pedrazza's claims to offer "real Mexican food."
$2.50 for an individual taco to $16.95 for an entree.
On a nice day, order your food "to go" and sit on a bench in Central Sq. to watch the action.
Perfect for the diner on a budget, with $1.99 margaritas at the Lebanon location.
$1.99 for an individual taco to $14.99 for an entree.
You can order takeout online for the Hanover location. Or take a Salsa dance lesson.
147 Main St.
A three-time "Best of NH" winner, Cafe Noche is a convenient stop on your way to or from Mt. Washington Valley.
$2.75 for an individual tack to $13.75 for an entree.
Try Tom's margarita, featuring Hornitos, Gran Gala and cranberry, or any of the local beers.
