After church on Saturday night, Mike and I decided to embark on our first plate of fajitas for the tour. La Hacienda Ranch is a fun place designed like a big lodge with tons of mounted and stuffed animals on the walls and they are a steak/Mexican food place rather than just Mexican. We love the place and it was everything that we expected it to be.
We split a beef fajita plate for one and a side of Sundance sauce (cheese sauce with lots of green chilies.)
Meat: Because this is a steak place the meat is great. However, it is very tender and falls apart as you are trying to pick it up. That is a downside for us but really more a personal preference than quality issue. The onions could have been cooked more. We both like really grilled onions and these were still a little white and firm for us.
Tortillas: Regular soft and good but nothing special.
Chips and Salsa: Excellent. Thin and crispy chips and rich smoky salsa.
Other: No shredded iceberg lettuce on the plate of sour cream, guacamole and cheese!! This earns HUGE points with us. I think that the portions of the sides were pretty small even for single serving but we made do.
Overall: Great place with a fun atmosphere and is huge which makes seating large parties easier than lots of restaurants. Everything was average and above average and it was a perfect place to spend a Saturday night!
