It’s been exciting to see some new restaurants coming to Old Town Lewisville to reinvigorate the downtown dining scene. We recently visited Baja Rita’s, a Baja-Mexican inspired restaurant that perfectly combines the best foods land and sea
have to offer with a Mexican flair.
When you walk into Baja Rita’s, you’ll feel a lot like you’ve been transported to a seaside restaurant in Mexico with its decor and ambience. There are beautiful murals on the walls, chandeliers made from bottle caps, bikes, and surfboards.
At the center of Baja Rita’s is the bar fully stocked with cervezas, tequilas, and wine. And they have a couple of signature drinks you can’t miss out on. Of course, Baja Rita’s, is known for its expansive margarita menu with options like Spicy Blood Orange, Kickin Berry, and their signature Margarita Swirl. But Baja Rita’s also has a couple of other cocktails they’re famous for like the Old Town Smash which is made with local whiskey from Lewisville’s Bendt Distillery.
When it comes to their food, Baja Rita’s has mastered how to serve authentic Baja cuisine with their own Texas twist.
One of their most popular dishes is their Ceviche en Vidrio made with a mix of red snapper, shrimp, diced mango, and citrus juices topped with cucumbers and served in a large Rita glass. One of their customers saw them bring this out to us and said emphatically, “That is the best ceviche I’ve ever had. And I don’t just say that about anything!”
Baja Rita’s has also become popular for their Street Tacos Plate, which comes with an assortment of four street tacos: pork, brisket, chicken, and carne asada stuffed inside their housemade tortillas.
And then to perfectly illustrate how Baja Rita’s has been able to master combining land and sea, they’ve got their Surf & Turf Tacos filled with sautéed shrimp, steak, avocado, queso fresco, and drizzled with
a chipotle cream sauce.
If you’re into more traditional Tex-Mex cuisine, they have enchiladas, a chimichanga, and flautas — plus other classics like loaded queso, nachos, quesadillas, and roasted corn.
And to top off all the amazing food and drinks is most definitely the lively atmosphere Baja Rita’s offers. There’s live music, outdoor games, and an amazing patio that makes it a great place to meet up with friends or bring the whole family to and have a great time.
We can’t wait for you to try Baja Rita’s and experience being transported to Baja, Mexico yourself!
