If you’ve ventured up 75 lately, you may have seen a new restaurant sign among the many around Parker for Cuellars’ Fajita Ranch. The restaurant opened in June and was created by three cousins offers “Ranch-Mex” options, which is exactly what you think it is from the name–the foods you’d eat when hanging out on your family or friend’s ranch, mesquite grilled, and served in healthy portions.
Their drinks are quite Tex-Mex–think plenty of margarita options, both frozen and on the rocks, and in many different flavors. We tried a few of their flavored margaritas and they were plenty fruity and just enough boozy.
Appetizers are about as you’d expect with a couple surprises like their Bean Layer Dip and White Wings, which are delicious wings wrapped in bacon. (Bring it on.) Just make sure to keep it light with the appetizers because you’ll have plenty of food on its way to you after ordering your entrées.
For dinner, since it’s in the name, you should probably go for the fajitas. The best part? They have a LOT of options for you from the traditional beef and chicken to portobello mushroom and ribeye fajita style. Just make sure to throw on some extras–think baby back rubs, jalapeño sausage, and fried eggs. All fajitas are served sizzling and mesquite grilled … and delicious. But if you can’t make up your mind (or have an army to feed), you can go for their “Combo Corral” options–the Fajitas del Rey feed “two” and the Tailgate Party feeds “four”. Both are vastly huge portions of meat and come with plenty of sides and other goodies … eat hearty, and make friends to share with.
Other entrée options include steaks and chicken (available grilled or chicken fried), fish, some Tex-Mex favorites like chipotle quesadillas and burritos, and healthy things that I don’t really need to talk about because … fajitas.
Dessert is as it should be–golden, crispy churros served with molten chocolate sauce and delicate sopapillas.
