Description

Like El Tiempo, Patrick Torres’s Escalante’s was born of another Tex-Mex institution: Guadalajara, which his family originally ran. Torres opened the first Escalante’s on Voss Rd. in 1993, then expanded, several years later, into the original Guadalajara’s location in Town & Country Village (Guadalajara, under new ownership, moved down the road to I-10 and Gessner). The menu at Escalante’s is lighter and friskier than its stalwart predecessors, and somewhat more sophisticated. The escaveche with chunks of shrimp, fish, avocado, and mango is terrific, as is the fajita relleno: fajita meat wrapped around a cheese-stuffed poblano pepper and topped with queso. Don’t miss the outstanding roasted corn bisque with sherry or the Loco Mango margaritas, with plenty of fresh fruit in every glass.
