I promise you will find something crave-worthy at Totonaco’s Mexican Grill. With more than 100 items on the menu, there is no shortage of options.
The menu is extensive. You can easily find something you like with a variety of options of meats from steak to seafood to chicken. And multiple food options from burritos to enchiladas to chimichangas to fajitas to tacos to nachos to quesadillas. But, if you really want the wow-factor and delicious flavors, you have got to try the fajitas.
Now, most Mexican restaurants just have one fajita option on the menu. You know, the steak, chicken, or shrimp that comes out sizzling on the cast iron serving tray. Totonaco’s does have those options, but they take it to another level with nine delicious fajita options.
The showstopper for fajitas was the pineapple fajita ($18.99), which was served in a scooped out pineapple and arrived at the table on fire. As in huge flames coming off the fajitas.
Imagine what those flames did to the pineapple pieces; if you are thinking juicy and incredibly sweet pineapple, you are correct.
So, the pineapple fajitas have grilled steak, chicken, bacon, pineapple (obviously), shrimp, and covered with a generous layer of melted cheese. The thing that amped the flavor up was the bacon, which gave the already delicious fajita flavor an added depth. The shrimp was under the melted cheese, and wow, the flavor was rich, with the tangy goodness of the pineapple. The pineapple fajita makes a normal fajita seem like some chicken and veggies.
It is massive and could easily be split by two people.
The most adventurous fajita was the molcajete special ($22.99), which was served in a giant molcajete bowl which is made of stone. It has thin sliced strips of steaks and chicken along with a generous serving of chorizo and shrimp. It even had grilled cactus served along with it. It made for a fantastic dinner and was served with a side of charros beans, a fresh pinto bean dish that is almost like a soup with rich flavors. Once again, the portion size is massive, and this can easily be shared.
The Burrito Colorado ($10.99) was a generous burrito served in a 12 inch tortilla filled with grilled steak, grilled chicken, and chorizo. The chorizo added a nice spice and added flavor to the burrito, which was also filled with black beans, cheese, guacamole, lettuce, and rice. It was then covered in the signature white queso sauce and drizzled with chipotle sauce. The chipotle sauce added a nice kick to the burrito, and was especially nice combined with the creamy cheese sauce.
If you just can’t decide what sounds best, you can check out their buffet on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. for a pretty amazing price. On Friday’s it is $10.99 and Saturdays it is $12.99. If you just want to grab a quick lunch, they offer an express lunch with house favorites like fajitas, fish tacos, chimichangas and more. The meals come with your choice of two sides. For families, they have a great kids’ menu with quesadillas, chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, tacos, and enchiladas for $4.99, including sides.
