‘Tis Tamale Season!

Screen Shot 2018-11-26 at 9.56.15 AM.png

While we crave a hot tamale just about any day of the year, we think of the holiday season as tamale season. That is, the optimal time to tamales that are made from scratch, light and packed with flavor!

A Marriage of Texture & Taste

Unwrapping a Mesero tamale is one of the best (certainly the most delicious) gift you’ll open this season. Like every dish we make here at Mesero, you can taste the freshness with just one bite of our famous tamales. Made fresh every day, our hot tamales are made from scratch for that hard-to-find homemade taste. Served two per an order, you have plenty of room to customize your tamale order to get exactly what you’re craving. Full of love and plenty of guajillo pork, you’re likely to want to share a delicious bite with your friends and family. Our tamales can be topped with the sauce of your choice. Two of our personal favorites are our roasted tomatillo sauce and a rojo sauce you’ll want to write home about. Fret not – regardless of what sauce you top your tamales with, we’ll drizzle it with our fresh crema. A cup of our spicy salsa serves as the perfect complement to tamales that will make you forget you’re not the only person in the room.

A Perfect Pairing

If you’re looking for the ideal libation to pair with your tamales, there is likely no choice more appropriate than a margarita. We’re big fans of our Micorita, made from Tequila Herradura “El Jimador” and served either frozen or on the rocks.

It’s no wonder that tamales have truly stood the test of time, they represent all that we appreciate about comfort food, this Mexican staple is hearty, delicious and – of course – comforting. Visit any Mesero locations to fully appreciate the perfect marriage of texture and taste that is a Mesero tamale!

No Tricks, Just Treats

Check the tricks at the door when you walk into Mesero, we’re all about treats around here on Halloween. If the spookiest holiday of the year doesn’t serve as the perfect excuse to satisfy that mean sweet tooth, what holiday does? Nothing makes the creepiness of Halloween more comforting than a sweet treat. Whether you’re looking for delicious postres mexicanos or fresh libations, we’ve got what you need at Mesero.

Sweet Postres

You’ll have a hard time choosing between our three equally delicious postres dishes. Our cinco leches is one of our favorite, ultra-decadent cakes. In the mood for something nutty? Take our word for it and order a slice (or two) of our carrot cake. Rich in nuts, carrots, and raisins, it’s a respectable way to wrap up any meal. Last but most certainly not least, our chocoflan. As authentic as it gets, our rich chocolate flan has just enough caramel-chocolate goodness to leave you wanting more

Fresh Libations

Who said that your sweet treat has to be a traditional dessert? A fresh libation is the perfect way to close out a night out with all the ghosts, ghouls, and goblins. Our sangre real is just sweet enough – made with milagro reposado, Cointreau, ginger, and blood orange for just enough citrus. For a more subtle take on a sweet cocktail, try the Jalapina cocktail. Crafted with herradura reposado, pina fresco, jalaeno, Cointreau, and citrus – it’s a Mesero favorite. It goes without saying that frozé is a good idea, holiday or not.  

Whether you have Halloween plans yet or not, we’d love to host you at Mesero on Wednesday. Costumes are strongly encouraged, we promise to keep churning out sweet treats all night.

From USA Today

USA Today expressed a deep appreciation for some of our beloved Tex-Mex classics, like our Queso Fundido.

Founded by Mico Rodriguez, who got his start at Tex-Mex icon Mia’s – we have now grown to five locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Thoughts from CEO Trey Dyer

Our CEO, Trey Dyer was thoughtfully quoted in the article as stating, “Every region of the country has its comfort food, and Tex-Mex is ours. Tex-Mex is a food group all its own. There are many styles of barbecue, but there’s only one Tex-Mex. Everybody knows what Tex-Mex is because we all grew up eating it.”

Our blend of Tex-Mex and Mexican-inspired cuisine has been appreciated near and far. Whether you’re in the mood for our gooey queso dishes or a refreshing cocktail, we’ve got you covered.

Celebrating American Life with Mexican Spirit

With a “Mexican Spirit. American Life.” slogan, here at Mesero we embrace everything we love and respect about the intersection of these two distinct cultures. If you haven’t dabbled with what we’ve dubbed the American Side of our menu, you’re truly missing out. Order any of the three beloved dishes below and we can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

The “Rose” Burger

Burgers. One of the most (if not the most) quintessential American dish. Named a top burger in the great state of Texas by Texas Monthly, our legendary “Rose” burger is one you need to taste yourself to fully appreciate. By doubling up on just about every ingredient, it serves heaps of flavor with every bite. Served between a fresh bun, we double up burger meat and double cheese for that extra melty goodness. Stacked iceberg lettuce, thick slices of tomato and the zing offered by pickles round out this award winning Mesero specialty. Naturally, we serve the “Rose” with a side of house fries.

The Big “D” Dog

The American side of our menu would be incomplete without America’s favorite sausage – the hotdog. Our spin on a hotdog is the Big “D” Dog. A quarter pound of kobe beef is served up on a fresh brioche bun. Not enough protein for you? Not to worry, we top it chili and cheddar cheese. We highly recommend using your house fries to scoop up any delicious bits that may fall out mid-bite.

Crispy Half Chicken

Served only during dinner time, our Crispy Half Chicken is a truly special treat. Finished in a cast iron skillet gives it a crispiness that’s hard to replicate. No house fries with this healthy option but we do serve it with grilled, in season veggies. Be sure to give us a call to have yours reserved.

Well, what are you waiting for? Come on in for lunch or dinner!

Delicioso Dishes We're Serving Up for Lunch

For a meal that is mouthwateringly good, visit Mesero for lunch. Be warned, the delicioso dishes we’re about to detail are likely to prompt a rumbly in your tumbly.

Community Dishes

Munching on one of our community, appetizer-style dishes can make for the perfect option for lunch. Our shrimp ceviche is a perfect, citrus-marinated, option. Tiger shrimp is served with jalapeño pepper, heirloom grape tomato, green onion, avocado, and fresh cilantro.

Tacos

You can’t go wrong with a couple (or a dozen) tacos for lunch. Two of our favorites are our brisket tacos and our crispy “dailey” fish a la playa. Oven-roasted and slow-cooked, just thinking about our brisket is making us drool. Served with  tomatillo sauce, queso chihuahua, onion, cilantro, mesero slaw, and arroz rojo, they are a perfectly well-rounded option. For those preferring a fish option, give our crispy “dailey” fish a la playa a try. Our fish of the day is tempura battered and served with roasted corn, tomato, jalapeño ranch, mesero slaw, and arroz blanco, yum!

Ensaladas

Our salads are the perfect antidote to a weekend of overindulging. Our cazera salad is the perfect option if you’re looking for a salad that’s refreshing yet filling. Served on a bed of romaine lettuce and mixed greens, it’s topped with applewood-smoked bacon, red onion, heirloom grape tomato, roasted corn, avocado vinaigrette, queso de oaxaca, and tortilla strips for some crunch. For a lighter salad option, opt for the hollywood cobb salad. Also served with romaine lettuce and mixed greens, it’s the perfect blend of applewood-smoked bacon, egg, avocado, heirloom grape tomato, and tortilla strips. It’s tossed in a jalapeno ranch dressing that has the slightest bite.

We’re dishing up tons of food you’re sure to appreciate, whether you’re visiting us for brunch, lunch, or dinner!
