Las Montañas Mexican Restaurant
Las Montañas is Spanish for "the Mountains". The perfect name for a Mexican Restaurant that has just opened in Medicine Park. After hearing several thumbs-up reviews from locals we decided to go out for lunch. The interior is a bright tomato red and sunshine yellow, a very pleasant look. The wait staff aims to please and was right there to take our order. The expected chips with salsa and cheese dips were delivered post haste and refilled instantly when they were low. Both the dips were tasty although I would have preferred a more substantial chip for scooping. We order from the lunch menu. We chose chile rellenos with beef, chicken fajitas and chicken flautas. My large single flautas came with guacamole, sour cream, beans and rice. I asked them to hold the cheese just because some restaurants use to much for my taste. I thought it was good and the rice was tastier then I have had at other Mexican eateries. My dining partners cleaned their plates. I was able to sneak a taste of chunky salsa that came with the chile rellenos. I will make sure I get my own serving next time. Our bill came to under $20 for the three of us. (We chose just to have water with our meal).
Las Montañas is located on Highway 49 at the East Lake entrance to Medicine Park. Tell them the Medicine Park Post sent you.
