Nuevo Laredo Cantina Restaurant Review: Waiting patrons patiently sip beers and margaritas as they cluster along the front steps of this Mexican restaurant. Inside, black-and-white photos of owner Chance Evans and pals savoring suds at the Cadillac Bar and other south-of-the-border spots adorn the walls. Despite the rowdy ambience usually associated with such haunts, this one is very family-friendly. On the dinner menu, seek out chicken with mole poblano, brisket, chiles rellenos and enchiladas. The inexpensive Tampico steak easily satisfies two, or gives you enough to take home for lunch. For a lighter meal or to share with friends, we like the queso flameado, with chorizo bits and pico de gallo. The wine list is short and relies on Rioja reds; there’s also house-made sangría and numerous Mexican beers. If you can, save room for flan or sopaipilla for dessert.
