Laid back and cozy. Not fancy at all. Good staff and owner is very nice. The food is as good as a lot of US West Coast Mexican Restaurants and better than most on the East Coast of the US.

I live in Texas and eat probably eat Mexican food 3 nights a week. If Picante was in my town, I'd add it to the list of places to frequent. It was fantastic.

The dining room is open air, but there are fans and we were comfortable eating.

The queso isn't exactly what you'd expect if you're from the states. It's much thicker but still great.

My wife got the corn on the cob appetizer at the recommendation of an acquaintance. She raved about it and everyone we talked to who tried it loved it. Its rolled in Parmesan cheese and something else. I didn't try it but she loved it.

I got the regular tacos and my wife got the Picante tacos. Both were great. The Picante tacos are a hard taco w/a flour tortilla wrapped around the outside w/ guac and sour cream and beans.

The margaritas were good too. The jalapeno (or Serrano) margarita was especially tasty.

If you like Mexican food, you won't feel like you wasted a meal eating at Picante.

Picante's remains a great choice for dining. Don't miss the corn on the cob and the deserts. Great taco place!

These guys really love what they do and do it all so well. Amazing staff. Wonderful food and drinks, and just a cool, laid back spot to enjoy Mexican food after a day in the sun.
We visit Picante several times a year and love our dining experience every time !
