This was my second visit to Table Mesa and for a Friday night the place was around 60% capacity. Everyone talks about how important it is to see downtown Bentonville thrive yet only a handful of people actually frequent these businesses (Java on the square is the most recent casualty).
They have a great thing going here with excellent food at affordable prices. On this visit we were joined by another couple and the food arrived within minutes after placing the order. My last visit I enjoyed the best Chili Relleno I have ever had and on this visit I had the slow roasted pork Carnitas (swine flu or not, just doing my part to support the pork industry). My wife ordered a Ceviche appetizer for her entree with lime marinated tuna, salmon, tomatoes, and watermelon over lettuce and avocado. This dish was phenomenal as were the "Cheap Dates" we had for an appetizer. Dates stuffed with Gorgonzola and wrapped in double smoked bacon then roasted OMG this was good. My slow roasted carnitas were well seasoned and fall apart tender served with black beans and rice. Our friends enjoyed the beef and crab meat enchiladas served with a pablano cheese sauce.
On a recent lunch trip I tried the Curry Chicken Burrito which is my new favorite at Table Mesa.
Give it a shot and let me know your thoughts.
