Dish of the day: Loco's Southwestern seafood pasta

by Kari Walker

Everyday is a fiesta at this Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel eatery

It's almost May and time to make plans for celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a little Mexican spice. Make plans to travel down to Charenton and grab a bite at Loco Mexican Grill and Cantina at Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel.

Loco offers Southwestern flavor not too far from the action of poker, blackjack and the jingle-jangle from a multitude of slot machines-press your luck and double down with any dish off the menu.

The Southwestern seafood pasta is a heaping bowl of fettuccini topped with grilled Gulf shrimp, crabmeat and fried Louisiana crawfish tails. It's all tossed with a creamy, spicy Southwestern cheese sauce and served with a slice of garlic and chipotle pepper jack cheese toast.

Don't forget to add an order of guacamole made table side by the Loco staff. And of course, a margarita or two as it's always a fiesta at Loco at Cypress Bayou Casino Hotel.
