If Portsmouth area residents are starting to think they have more than enough Mexican restaurants, think again. Soon the former Outback Steakhouse in Newington will be home to El Rodeo.
Portsmouth real estate broker CB Richard Ellis has leased the building to a Harrisburg, Pa., based Mexican restaurant chain that will now gain a foothold in the Seacoast.
According to El Rodeo's website, the family-owned chain opened its first restaurant in Harrisburg, Pa., in 1992 and now has eight restaurants. "El Rodeo's menu features specialties, including sizzling fajitas, hand-made tamales, enchiladas and tacos as well as combination platters. Salads and soups are also available. El Rodeo offers a wide selection of margaritas, in addition to a complete list of beers and cocktails," the El Rodeo's website reads.
When El Rodeo opens later this spring, it will join other Portsmouth area Mexican restaurants such as Margarita's, Poco's Bow Street Cantina, Dos Amigos Burritos, Agave, and the soon to be opened Cemita Shack and Vida Cantina restaurants.
