After mastering Italian cuisine, Julian Barsotti launched his concept “Ritas & Queso” during the pandemic, making margs, queso, and enchiladas available for delivery! Now he has partnered with Michael Barnett to bring a restaurant dedicated to serving all the Tex-Mex favorites of Dallas with locally sourced ingredients and scratch-made menu items. The restaurant is named after a ‘90s Beck album and is always vibing to music from the era!
The spot is perfect for groups with reservations for 8+, and the rest is first come first serve!
The menu elevates typical Tex-Mex fare, while paying homage to Barsotti’s childhood and the dishes he grew up eating! You can expect to find classic plates, like fajitas, enchiladas sauced three ways, and gorditas, as well as fresh flour tortillas made in house with ingredients sourced from local farms and vendors.
They also teamed up with master sommelier, Sergio Quijano, who created their bar program! One of their popular drinks is the Sangre De Christo with mint syrup, muddled lemon, red wine reduction, and dusted with hibiscus!
Their emphasis extends past just the menu, but on the full dining experience and the atmosphere! They want diners to feel comfortable and create a place perfect for family and friends to enjoy together! The 50,000 sq ft space features a lively indoor bar area, raised dining room with multiple party areas and authentic touches. Find Katrina dolls handmade in Mexico and hand painted murals, like a 1984 photo from the sportatorium!
The main feature of the space will be the Joe T’s-inspired patio with outdoor seating for 100 guests! The new spot will feel like the ultimate escape with string lights, stunning greenery, and Mexican decor like tiles and pendants!
