Blue Goose Cantina in Grand Prairie, along with the company’s six other locations, are featuring some savory new summertime specials on the menu. My husband and I tried a few of them recently, and liked them all. Tacos al Pastor was our hands down favorite, though. Street corn tortillas loaded with jack cheese, adobo-marinated pork, grilled pineapple, onion, cilantro, and a spicy cremosa drizzle ($14) melded for a sublime flavor combination—I hope this creation will stay on the menu so I can order them year-round.

Also on the Blue Goose Cantina Summer Menu: Shrimp Tacos–corn tortillas packed with adobo-seasoned shrimp, slaw, corn, avocado slices, and a chipotle mayo drizzle ($14). Since I’m a shrimp lover, these were also a favorite of mine but my husband wasn’t that impressed—primarily because they’re a lot messier to eat than the Tacos al Pastor.

We also tried the Huaraches, a traditional Mexican masa tortilla topped with beans, either chorizo or pork al pastor, lettuce, pico, sour cream, and queso fresco ($14). We tried Huaraches with the pork al pastor, and it was very filling, resembling a burrito smothered in sauce.

Mexican Benedict Served at Weekend Brunch

Since we were there on a weekday, I wasn’t able to try the other new entry, a Mexican Benedict. This dish is served only at weekend brunch Sat. –Sun. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Obviously I’ve got to get back to Blue Goose Cantina soon to try the Mexican Benedict: Two sopes topped with refried beans, chorizo, poached eggs, salsa verde, sour cream, queso fresco, and cilantro served with brunch potatoes.

The summer cocktail menu features a refreshing Kiwi Cucumber Margarita. A fusion of Corzaon Blanco tequila, agave, kiwi, lime juice, and fresh cucumber ($12). It was named Best Margarita at the Dallas Margarita Festival in May.

As always, the service at Blue Goose Cantina in Grand Prairie is top notch. We enjoyed helpful, friendly service under the direction of new GM Kevin Carrasco. A veteran in the hospitality industry, Carrasco says he’s excited to take over the thriving Grand Prairie location with its great team and loyal customers.

The Blue Goose Cantina summer specials will remain on the menu until July 31 at all seven locations including Fort Worth, Frisco, Grand Prairie, Grapevine, Highland Village, McKinney, and Plano.
