Lozano’s shines with growth

There was once a time when Immokalee was dead on Friday night. Let’s face it, without the Friday night lights of a high school football game and long before Ave Maria came along, the [unfaithful] crowds looked elsewhere for good food and fun.

Fastforward a few years and Immokalee is now seeing its share of visitors seeking authentic Mexican cuisine.

In fact, on any given Friday night, places like Lozano’s Mexican Restaurant are bustling with transplants from up north seeking a little bit of homemade Mexican food as their inner Mexican yerns for something better.

Starting off any great meal is Lozano’s homemade Chips and Salsa.

From experience I can tell you that these chips are best eaten until they are gone. With salsa that’s equally addicting, you won’t be disappointed!

From there you can choose up to nine different appetizers or move on to your entree with over 60 options to choose from including tacos, quesadillas, fajitas, enchiladas, steak, or chicken.

My all time favorite is the #28 - Fajita Tejanas which offers beef, chicken and shrimp fajitas served with grilled bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, rice and beans along with guacamole and pico de gallo.

If you’re up to wetting your whistle a bit, try one of Loazano’s many drink options including margaritas, wine, cocktails, shots or bottled beers.

If you go on a Friday night, go early or expect a wait. While outside seating is an option, it fills up quick so grab yourself some chips and salsa and kick back a bit.
