Skinny Rita’s differentiates itself thanks to organic, pesticide- and GMO-free ingredients along with health-focused components like high-fiber cactus tortillas and agave-based margaritas that cap off at 150 calories. The cheery patio at the West Gray location (the flagship restaurant is located on North Main) makes for pleasant margarita drinking, and attentive servers make for an agreeable dining experience. Flavorful tofu tacos shone at this haven for lighter Latin flavors, and the crab- and shrimp-studded guacamole was highly satisfying. The fruity margarita offerings left something to be desired, as did the slightly bland pollo milanesa. For those with a sweet tooth, the unusual presentation of the dulce de leche layered tres leches cake is worth checking out. Prices are about on par with those at other Tex-Mex players in town, but expect to pay a slightly higher margin for higher-quality meat dishes.
