Texas Cobb Salad

Looking for something a little bit more traditional? The Texas Cobb is loaded with all your favorites. We start with crispy romaine lettuce, then add grated jicama, boiled egg, crispy bacon, candied Texas pecans, and your choice of meat: brisket, pulled pork, or chicken. Oh – and let’s not forget the dressing!

 The Mediterranean Salad is always a good choice when looking for something low in calories and healthy. We make ours with artichoke hearts, olives, red peppers, and cherry tomatoes over a bed of fresh lettuce with feta vinaigrette. Need a protein? Add chicken for just $4. 

 

Texas Baja Salad

 Staying true to our Texican roots, we’ve got a salad for you! It’s like a taco in a bowl with blackened chicken breast, avocado, black beans, corn, cucumber (okay that’s not really in a taco), red bell peppers, Oaxaca cheese, and romaine lettuce.
