My first time finally checking out this family-owned restaurant that has been operating in Riverside for almost 50 years! My iphone pictures don’t do the place any justice because they do have little accents throughout the restaurant that makes it more personal. For example, they sell some awesome jewelery that are Día de Muertos inspired that are displayed in a few spots throughout.
House Chips and Salsa
Sounds weird, but one of the best reasons to come to Zecatecas Cafe is for their salsas. So good! They have two kinds: one is a warm brown salsa which is more of a mole and the other is the standard red salsa that is in a container on the table that you pour for yourself into the salsa bowl. Gosh, both of their salsas are amazing. The red salsa has enough kick and huge on flavor, but isn’t too overpowering. Then when I thought that was the salsa for me, I tried the warm mole. Nice strong flavor and the warmth of the salsa just made me feel so good since it was a windy day outside.

I want to come back either on Wednesdays for their spicy rib special or Fridays for their nopales con chicamones special. Never had either of those and they sound delicious. Let me know if there are any other items I should check out too.
