The twice-annual Restaurant Week event to benefit Three Square is back for spring, running March 7-14. While many local diners take advantage of the specialty menus and affordable prices to experience fine dining restaurants, we’re all about Mexican food this week, and several local Mexican restaurants are participating in Restaurant Week.

In Henderson, Amigo’s Mexican Cantina (558-7000) at the Fiesta casino is offering dinner for $30.14 including bacon-wrapped shrimp or ceviche to start and an entrée choice of mixed grill fajitas or carne asada picado. At other Station Casinos properties, Cabo—at Boulder, Santa Fe, Sunset and Palace Stations—offers the same dinner deal, as does Garduño’s at Fiesta Rancho.

Canonita (414-3773) at the Venetian’s Grand Canal Shoppes is serving a simple lunch of chips with salsa and guacamole, chile corn soup or chopped salad, and a chicken burrito or Santa Rosa pork barbacoa for $20.14. For dinner, spend $10 more for three courses with extra entrée options such as Chiapaneco roasted salmon and Toluca Portobello mushrooms, plus flan or a cinnamon chocolate brownie for dessert.

The Fashion Show’s El Segundo Sol (258-1211) is dishing up chicken taquitos with guacamole, fajita platters and coconut flan for Restaurant Week, priced at $30.14 for lunch and dinner.

Does a Hawaiian burger with mushrooms, cheese, ham, carnitas and pineapple qualify as Mexican food? Maybe not, but it sounds delicious, and it’s the main course for Restaurant Week lunch or dinner at Hussong’s Cantina (632-6450) in the Mandalay Shops. Also on the menu is shrimp tostaditos and choco flan cake with strawberry-chile de arbol sauce for $30.14.

Pink Taco (693-5525) at the Hard Rock Hotel is offering lunch for $20.14 including soup, duck tacos or chicken torta, and a Mexican chocolate cream pie for dessert.
