My sister in law organizes couples dinners for her neighbors from the lovely gated community of Sandoval in Cape Coral. While a few of us do not live in the community, they’ve opened up the invite to us. It’s always a roaring good time. A few hours away from the kids, an adult play date if you will, is anxiously awaited by all. Two weekends ago we rolled in deep (20 couples) to Salado Pedros, a Mexican Cantina, at Gulf Coast Town Center in Fort Myers, FL. The food was good, the waitresses were friendly and the drinks were awesome. I had the Taco de Carnitas, Ceviche and the Guacamole, all were great. My husband had the Molcajete surf and turf and loves it. You are given chips and dip when seated and you can order the guacamole to go with it.
I’ve read some reviews where people are saying it’s not a true Mexican dining experience. It’s not a hole in a wall, it’s one of those experience restaurants that entices you with its décor and tequila on taps. They truly have great drinks, any margarita is good, and you can try hundreds of different Tequila options. You may not feel like you are having homemade Mexican food, but it is delicious and the atmosphere is great. Our first experience at Salado Pedro’s was on March 15th, 6 weeks before the group dinner we recently had. The waitress that evening ignored us, was rude and seemed annoyed whenever we asked her for something. That will bring a place down fast. But we spoke to the manager, Ryan, who apologized for this and because of him, we decided to give this place another chance. Our waitress(es), this time were fantastic, and that will usually break or make the entire dining experience. The manager, Ryan, took care of our requests, like changing the tv channels and making sure we had enough waiters/waitresses for our group.
We would totally recommend this restaurant and surely you will enjoy your time there. The house tequila, Maestro Doble, is smooth and was a hit with everyone.
SaladoPedros is right on the corner across from Dunkins Diamonds on the same street as PF Changs. Having a group of friends here, is always going to be fun, because you can’t beat a good time, tequila and chips. If you are looking for a great place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, this is your place. Just make sure you have a designated driver, they can try the tequila the next time you visit
