Food in the Fox was in Green Bay on Friday and lunch was at Fajitia Republic, which is on the East side of Green Bay. I have heard many good things about this place and for some reason I thought it was a chain, like Burrachos or Chipolte. It was a full service restaurant and like any good Mexican restaurant, had complementary chips and salsa. There were also a couple of people having margaritas, which looked very good in comparison to my water.
Festive & Colorful
The decor of the restaurant is very bright and festive. I wish I would have taken a picture. There was also Latin (Mexican?) music playing in the background to add to the overall Mexican like atmosphere. They had a full service bar with seating in the bar area and main dining room. Soon after sitting down, our server brought out chips and salsa. Let’s talk more about the salsa. It was amazing. Not too spicy, a bit on the runny side and it had a hint of a sweet flavor. Weird, maybe, but it was pretty spectacular.
Chicken- What else?
After looking through the large menu, I noticed they had lunch specials from 11-2. The specials were pretty decent, with most of them being between 6-9 bucks. After eating my share of chips and salsa, I decided on going with the Chicken Taco Salad lunch special (I thought I would save on calories after inhaling a pound of tortilla chips). It came with black beans, corn, tomatoes grilled peppers and onions and queso cheese sprinkled on the top. The dressing was an avocado ranch and it was thick and creamy.
Overall, I was very impressed with the food. It was reasonably priced and flavorful. The small salad was filling and they brought out another bowl of chips and salsa after the first on disappeared. The service was okay. We were acknowledged, but the server forgot apply the coupon we told him about when we sat down. Either way, I will be back to the Republic of Fajitas.
