Join us in May as we celebrate Mexican inspired dishes throughout the month!

Enjoy the tossed and prepared salads such as the Baja Bean & Cilantro, Pepper Verde Potato Salad, and Chipotle, Lime & Cilantro Quinoa. Zesty Turkey Taco Salad and Build-Your-Own Tostada (dinner only) will be offered at participating locations.

Our Posole Soup is made with pork and hominy which is a dried corn soaked in a mineral lime bath. Also on the menu are other soups, including  the Albondigas Locas Soup and the Chicken Jalapeno Tortilla Soup. Try the Tomatillo Focaccia made with our made-from-scratch tomatillo sauce.

Our pastas include Mike’s Nacho with orecchiette pasta and Creamy Cilantro Lime Pesto. To add a big crunch to your meal, enjoy the Tostadas and Chips & Salsa de Lupe.

Look forward to the sweet desserts! The Horchata muffin is delicious with a hint of coconut flavor. Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Dulce de Leche Soft Serve May 5th to the 8th and the Flan Fiesta Cake will be served during dinner only from May 26-31.

Wow! just found the blog for the first time! and was looking at the April 28 preview of the May menu. Fantastic! please continue the allergen information!! I have been so waiting for this. For the past 7 years I have had to ask to check the recipe book to determine if I could eat any soups. Most of the time the answer is disappointingly no, because of the soy protein so commonly used, but occasionally I have been able to enjoy your wonderful soup. Oil is ok but not the protein. I know that many times I just don’t ask because it is such a production, to get out the book etc,. But, if you can do this on the blog each month I will love it!!!! thank you so much. Whomever had the idea, big hugs to you!! Our family loves to go to Sweet Tomatoes, all 12 of us!
