A Taste of the Season

When you open the front doors of the lobby of RedTail Mountain Resort, you are immediately transported into a winter wonderland of holiday twinkling lights, a magnificent Christmas tree and fresh garland that grace the large fireplace mantels. The magic of the holidays can be found at RedTail and they are ready for the Christmas festivities, including a visit from Santa Claus himself.

RedTail is extending an invitation to everyone who calls Johnson County home, young and old, to come join them for their first Christmas Open House on Friday, December 13, 2013 from 5:30 pm until 8:00 pm. There is no charge to come and take in the sights and sounds of Christmas, indulge in hot apple cider and some scrumptious cookies. There is already a special seat for Santa next to the Christmas tree, ready for little ones to whisper in his ear.

The Vistas at RedTail Mountain Resort offers an extensive Sunday brunch menu, including a buffet. Appetizers, sandwiches and salads are available for lunch, while the dinner menu includes soups, starters, salads, along with an assortment of chicken, fish, pork and beef entrees.

Christmas time is the perfect time of year to give family and friends gift certificates to some of their favorite restaurants. Poblano’s Mexican Grill has become a favorite for many Johnson Countians. For a change of pace from traditional holiday fare, Poblano’s offers a wide array of foods that will satisfy everyone’s palate.

Nachos, chicken wings and an assortment of cheese, bean and guacamole dips are the perfect appetizers for any meal. They even have a dish known as The Mountaineer, a cheese sauce with spinach. Poblano’s offers lunch specials, combination dinners, soups and salad, Mexican specialties, tacos and burritos, along with vegetarian dishes. The combination dinners are perfect for those who want a little bit of everything. You can find a meal of enchiladas, tacos, tamal, chile rellano and burritos. The meals are prepared with mild and authentic Mexican flavor. For those that enjoy a spicier zing to their foods, hot sauces are also available.

The food is delivered promptly, fresh and steaming hot. The meal is not complete without one of their scrumptious desserts, including sopapillas, flan, fried ice cream and chimi cheesecake. There is also a menu for children under 12. The family friendly atmosphere is a sure bet to offer something for everyone.
