Enchiladas.jpg

We’ve been very busy at Mesero getting ready for a favorite holiday of ours that’s just around the corner, Cinco de Mayo! Will you be joining us on the bid day to bite of the best Tex-Mex food in Dallas and a sip of a world class margarita or two? Before we kick off the celebrating in just a few days, let’s take a moment to consider what this big holiday really celebrates. Considered the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla, Cinco de Mayo celebrates Mexico’s military victory over French forces in the year 1862. It serves as the perfect opportunity to celebrate and appreciate Mexican heritage. What better place to celebrate this notable holiday than Mesero, a restaurant that truly embodies its slogan – Mexican Spirit, American Life!

Festive Atmosphere

You likely know that our atmosphere is quite festive on just about any day, but we take it to the next level when getting into the holiday spirit. Our bartenders will be shaking up a wide range of cocktails while our meseros serve up mouthwatering comida from our carefully crafted menu.

Tex Mex Food

One thing’s for sure, whether your order lands on the Tex Mex side of the menu or the American side of the menu, every single dish of ours is brimming with unique flavors and created using only the freshest of ingredients. You can’t go wrong with an order of camaron tacos, made with sautéed garlic shrimp, roasted poblano, onion, chile aioli, slaw, and white rice. Indulge in any one of Mesero’s (equally delicious) five different enchilada options, each of them served up with two enchiladas and a generous helping of rice. The verdes chicken enchiladas, topped with a fresh tomatillo sauce and plenty of cheese are melt in your mouth good. Wash it all down with the renowned micorita, a margarita crafted with El Jimador Reposado either on the rocks or frozen.

The countdown is on – we’ll be sure to look for you at Mesero on Cinco de Mayo!

Fun Atmosphere 

Atmosphere is undoubtedly one of the first things your guests will pick up on upon arrival to your special event. A fun and welcoming atmosphere is the perfect way to kick off your event and make any introductions seamlessly. 

Fresh Libations 

After welcoming guests to a special event, refreshments are next on the list. Having a range of fresh libations at the ready ensures that you’re meeting the varying needs of all of your guests, while not making any assumption that everyone wishes to indulge in alcoholic beverages! 

Quality Food 

Having mouthwatering food for your guests to munch on throughout the duration of your event is essential! Especially if libations are involved, you want to be sure to have plenty of sustenance on hand to keep everyone satisfied. Taking care of the food aspect of a special event doesn’t just entail sufficient quantities, it also means quality food! At Mesero that means using only the freshest ingredients available to hand-craft mouthwatering food that guests will remember for ages. 

Committed Service 

Having dedicated service is truly one of the most essential ingredients for any special event, regardless of the occasion. A service team that’s committed to excellence and to ensure the needs of you and your guests are met is invaluable.

Celebrate National Beer Day With Us

Beers Mesero.jpg

If there’s one thing we appreciate on a hot Dallas day, it’s the refreshing impact of an ice cold cerveza! What better day to take a moment and appreciate all that the cold brews the Mesero bar has to offer than National Beer Day? Whether you recognize April 7 as a holiday or not, we hope you’ll come in and enjoy a cold one at Mesero. As you may know, our mantra, is “Mexican Spirit American Life” so naturally we have beers represented from both countries!

Mexican Beers

Whether you’re in the mood for a flavored pilsner or a munich dunkel style lager, we’ve got you covered. We offer a range of favorite beers imported from Mexico including Modelo Especial, Negra Modelo, Victoria, and XX Lager. After one sip of Negra Modelo, you won’t be surprised that it’s one of the best (if not thebest) selling dark beer in all of Mexico! Dare we say it? All four of these beers serve as the perfect primer to enjoying some chilled, high quality tequila.  

Seasonal and Locally Crafted 

Given that we live in a state so established in the craft brew industry, naturally we have seasonal and craft brews available for you. These vary quite frequently so be sure to ask your mesero what we have when you come in. 

American Beers 

As light and refreshing as ever, you can always keep it classic and order a Bud Light. We also have Michelob Ultra available, a light lager style brew. Prefer something with no alcohol but you’d still like to get in the spirit with friends and family? Opt for Beck’s non-alcoholic. 

Not quite sure what beer you’d like to sip on in celebration of National Beer Day? Ask your mesero! They will undoubtedly have a top-notch idea.

Welcome Spring’s Arrival at Mesero

With temperatures climbing into the 70’s and 80’s, it’s safe to say that we’re thrilled to officially welcome the arrival of Spring! Take advantage of the open air patio seating to soak in the sun while feeling the warm breeze. While you’re here, enjoy some of the fresh dishes and cocktails that serve as a perfect complement to one of our favorite seasons. 

An Ode to Fresh 

Nothing speaks to freshness quite as much as a perfectly ripe avocado made into some mouthwatering guacamole. Try our two famous variations on this appetizer favorite, each option as fresh as the other. Our clasico guacamole features avocado, fresh lime juice, habanero pepper, cilantro, and sweet red onion. The tipico keeps thing simple but no less delicious with avocado, lime, and sea salt. Need something with a bit more substance? Opt for the shrimp ceviche! Either appetizer serves as the perfect lead in to one of our nutritious ensalada options. Try the flavor-packed campesina, featuring black-peppered goat cheese, golden and red beets, toasted pecan, and caramelized pears with plenty of baby arugula. For an option that’s equally parts savory and sweet, order our baby kale salad. Available as a lunch portion as well, our salmon a la planche is a dish you’re likely to dream about. With the patagonian salmon served blackened, it comes with plenty of roasted vegetables and arroz blanco.  

Fresh Libations

Finding a libation that will serve as the perfect complement to your fresh Spring meal won’t be hard to do with a drink menu as extensive as ours. Whether you’d prefer an ice-cold brew, a glass of your favorite wine, or a handcrafted cocktail, you’ll find it at Mesero. 

Visit any one of our locations to welcome the arrival of spring, Mesero style. 

Sip on Perfección

Screen Shot 2019-03-17 at 7.37.52 AM.png

A margarita with a name like Perfección must be incredibly special to live up to its name. Though we love it for all the unique elements it packs into a margarita, we encourage you not to take our word for it. Come see us at Mesero to sip on perfección and find out for yourself what all the hype is about.

What Makes it Perfección?

We created the La Perfección Margarita in celebration of one of our favorite holidays – National Margarita Day! When crafting a cocktail to celebrate the big day we knew we had to create a truly special margarita, one unlike any of those we already carry. The product of putting our heads together creatively was La Perfección! What makes it so special you ask? It’s crafted with hand-selected tequila, Cointreau, plenty of fresh squeezed lime and lemon juice, volcanic salt, and a touch of gold. Yes – you read those last two ingredients right. Part of what makes the La Perfección Margarita so unique is our use of volcanic salt and gold.  

A Cocktail Menu Embodying Perfection

If the La Perfección Margarita sounds like just a bit too much for you to handle right now, we like to think that just about each of the cocktails on our carefully crafted cocktail menu is perfect in its own way. For those looking for something more simple without comprising depth of taste, consider our Sangria La Flor. Made with brandy, orange citrus, and pinot noir, it’s bold yet refreshing. Are your taste buds craving something on the sweet side? You can’t go wrong with the Berry Street, it’s a frozen margarita made with blueberry puree liquor (that we made in-house, of course)!

Regardless of how you define libation perfection and which of our five locations you visit us at, you’ll have an opportunity to sip on perfección.

 

Toast to National Margarita Day on February 22

Mesero final.jpg

It’s here, National Margarita Day, a spirited holiday celebrating one of our most beloved cocktails – the margarita! A libation that’s equal parts sweet and sour, Mesero has a wide selection of world-class margaritas that are available served either frozen or on the rocks. In recognition of National Margarita Day, we’re highlighting some of our favorite margaritas to share with you – from diehard classics to those you’ll only find at Mesero.  

Keep the Margaritas Flowing

To kick things off, you can’t go wrong with a classic, the Meserita. Comprised of just three ingredients, the refreshing Meserito is the perfect blend of herradura silver, Cointreau, and citrus. For those ready to crank up the heat, we’d be failing you if we didn’t direct you to the Jalapina. Jalapeno peppers bring the spice factor but are perfectly balanced with herradura reposado, Cointreau, pina fresco, and – of course – citrus!

Opting for something a bit lighter on the sweets and more forgiving on the waistline? Choose the Size 2 cocktail, made of Jimador Silver tequila, citrus, and Splenda. It’s just as good whether you have it served frozen or on the rocks! Representing a uniquely Mesero twist on a margarita, the Berry Street cocktail is berry-focused frozen micorita. What really sets this cocktail apart is that it’s made with our house-made blueberry puree liquor – it doesn’t get much fresher than that.

See You February 22

Since opening its doors, Mesero has been serving up unique margaritas in an atmosphere that friends and family alike will enjoy. We can’t wait to see you on February 22 to celebrate National Margarita Day! Stop in at any one of our five locations and we know you’re sure to find some mouthwatering comida to serve as the perfect complement to the margarita of your choice.

In Queso You Missed It

Screen Shot 2019-03-02 at 4.10.07 PM.png

We’ve yet to meet a Mesero guest who doesn’t appreciate the amazing Tex-Mex cheese dip that queso dreams are made of. Mesero loves queso so much that we’ve dedicated a sizeable chunk of our menu to a number of queso variations, and we’ve pulled together a round-up in queso you’ve missed it.

Queso Mesero

Since it includes our namesake, you know this queso has got to be pretty dang good. Not to toot our own horn but we’ve heard that it’s unlike any queso around! Spinach, artichoke, and poblano adiciones are perfectly combined with ooey-gooey queso Chihuaha for a queso you’re going to want to devour single-handedly. Turn up the heat by adding chorizo or brisket to your queso mesero.

Queso Fundido

Served in an iron skillet, it’s far more than just presentation that elevates our queso fundido game to a whole new level. With queso chihuahua as the base, we added onion, papita, and Mexican chorizo to make a decadent dish that’s finger-lickin’ good. You’ll have your choice of having it served with either a flour or corn tortilla.

Queso Tejano

Last but most certainly not least on our round-up, queso Tejano. Unlike our other two queso options, we make our queso Tejano with cheddar cheese a la Mexicana. Green and red bell pepper add depth of flavor without overwhelming the palette. One things for sure - this no-frills queso is one you’ll love.

Regardless of which of our three queso options you land on, rest assured that we use only the freshest ingredients in creating them. In queso you’ve missed it, we’ve got the best queso around. The only way to find out is to try it yourself, come by and see us at any one of our five Mesero locations.
