They had me at ‘Smoked Tequila’ . A new and unusual Mexican restaurant is opening in North Carolina. The good news for those of us who love Mexican food and would love something different is, it’s here in Charlotte.

It is called Casa del Tequila and they are not afraid to use the beverage in just about everything.  Of course they will be serving burritos, fajitas and the usual Mexican fare.  But I will be there for the items that you just can’t get anywhere else.

I love to eat outside the box and the choices at Casa del Tequila look endless.  I am looking forward to their steak and seafood dishes.  Shrimp submerged in citrus juices with cucumber, red onion and avocados, smoked tequilla steak and more. Their claim to fame is “made from scratch authentic family recipes”.  And it looks like they are not afraid to make it spicy!  To learn more get all the details from the Charlotte Observer.
