Libre Mexican Cantina

Created by the same company (Clique) that brought Hearthstone and Salute to Red Rock casino, Libre is a decent, if uninspired, Mexican restaurant. I actually prefer its predecessor, Mercadito, to this place. At least Mercadito had a unique variety of tacos. The menu at Libre is more run-of-the-mill Mexican designed to appease the suburban palate. I imagine concepting meetings were filled with decision makers saying, “make it as generic as possible!” If that was the case, they’ve succeeded. There isn’t much that makes Libre special or memorable.

Their appetizers are the only place with a glimmer of originality. The Mexican street corn fritters ($12), in particular, stood out. The deep fried balls had a thick, crunchy exterior covering a mixture of corn and topped with a cotija creme. The crispy taquitos ($11) were executed well, but not much different than what you’d find at any other Mexican restaurant.

Of course, you can’t have a Mexican restaurant without fajitas, right? The quality of the steak ($24) they use is rather good and the plating is cool with its mini jars of salsa, sour cream, and cheese. But, the price may lead some to wonder why they didn’t go to a neighborhood restaurant instead of one in a casino.

The execution of the food is solid, but the lack of original menu items may lead some to never try them. On the plus side, their menu contains vegan items, gluten free dishes, and a kid’s menu is available as well.
