If you are craving Mexican food, a local Mexican restaurant is the best place to find fresh, authentic cuisine. Before dining at a Mexican restaurant, there are a few questions you should consider asking.

  • What ingredients are used to cook the food?
    At many authentic Mexican restaurants the names of the dishes are on the menu in Spanish. If you are unfamiliar with a dish it is a good idea to ask about the recipe, so you can decide if it is something you might like. It is also important to ask about the recipes if you have any food based allergies. Additionally, some Mexican cuisine is cooked using peppers and chilies that are very hot, so if you do not like food with a lot of spice, it is a good idea to ask if a dish is hot before you order.

  • Do you have any low-fat or low-calorie menu options?
    If you are dieting, it is a good idea to ask about reduced fat and calorie meals. Although some Mexican food is fried, many restaurants have healthier grilled or baked entrees. For instance, grilled chicken tacos with low-fat sour cream and cheese would be a much lighter meal than a deep fried steak burrito with full-fat toppings. Many salsas and seasonings used in Mexican cooking are low in calories, allowing for flavorful yet healthy food.

  • What sides are available with a meal?
    The most common side dishes served at Mexican restaurants are rice and re-fried pinto beans. However, you may be able to substitute items like black beans, salad, vegetables, or chips and salsa.
