The Whole Enchilada Fresh Mexican Grill

There's a glut of "Fresh Mex" options in and around Fort Lauderdale, but the Whole Enchilada is a welcome addition to the fold. This fast eatery has a quirky, personalized feel, from the vintage books that decorate the high-up shelves to the kooky movies the staff plays during lunch and dinner hours. The food shares the same homey sensibility, occupying a space somewhere between Tex-Mex and Baja Mex. The tacos are knockouts - seared Mahi Mahi is seasoned perfectly and put to bed in a swatch of cilantro crema-spiked cabbage along with shredded jack cheese, tomato, and hearty slices of avocado; black tiger shrimp get the same treatment and are just as good. Fans of big-ass burritos can rest easy knowing TWE shares their gluttonous muse; in this case a rice-, bean-, cheese-, salsa-, and avocado-filled beast named The Bob that comes with a choice of juicy grilled chicken, steak, ground beef, or deliciously seared tofu. The option to replace your bovine sour cream with vegan-friendly tofu sour cream costs just $.50 extra. Just about everything you can order comes with newly fried tortilla chips for dipping in complimentary salsas, a unique selection of cantina style, spicy mango, roasted tomato, and a smooth-but-not-too-spicy rojo.
