La Herradura

The Horseshoe. And a lucky find this was.

8414 Geyer Springs Road, Little Rock, Arkansas 565-6063

An innocuous storefront in a dingy Southwest Little Rock strip mall hides a well kept secret in Mexican cuisine. Although I've heard through the grapevine that the owners are from El Salvador and not Mexico. The restaurant is surprisingly elegant inside with polished wood tables and chairs and real china and flatware to eat with. And it boasts a full bar with a good selection of beers and drinks.

We started with an appetizer called an "Aye Chihuahua!" which was a bowl of melted goat cheese, "country" chorizo sausage, onions, cilantro and chipotle pepper sauce. It came with fresh corn tortillas that appear homemade. Absolutely delicious, though you may want to request some of the house hot sauce to liven it up a little. Don't be too afraid when they tell you the sauce is "very hot." It has just the right amount of heat and a wonderful flavor.

We tried the Enchiladas Monarcas and the Enchiladas Aztecas. The first being cheese enchiladas topped with pork and the second being corn tortillas stuffed with pork. The Aztecas gave you quite a bit more to eat and had a more robust flavor. Both were very good.

Most of the dinners hover around $7.00 to $10.00 with lunch specials as low as $3.99. The lunch specials look like they were copied straight off the menu at Cancun in North Little Rock. I avoided those and stuck to the well appointed regular menu.

We are definitely going to make this a regular stop. Muy saboroso! Highly recommend.
