DALLAS (KDAF) — The Lunch Pail Series is a new, online series where CW33 Digital introduces you to different places for lunch around the DFW area. We find our next stop at a place that definitely knows how to relax and have fun!

Plomo Quesadilla Bar is fairly new to the Knox-Hendersen area, yet has already started making a name for itself. Located on McMillan Avenue, Plomo is known for its casual fun atmosphere and variety of specialty quesadillas, owner Omar Kasim wanted to create a fun and inviting atmosphere for all.

“We take really simple items that you would see in your everyday pantry and elevate them,” Kassim continued. ” Everything that we do here at Plomo is made from scratch. We incorporate very simple items like Chorizo mac and cheese, Doritos, Ruffles and incorporate them in to our scratch kitchen environment. So that allows us to be able to provide really robust flavors that are unique and eclectic, in a very simple, beautiful quesadilla.

The Food

When it comes to the food, the menu itself has 14 quesadilla combinations. A customer favorite is The Esco Bar featured in the segment, it features sirloin steak, elote, pickled onion and avocado slices.

Quesadillas aren’t complete without sauces! Plomo offers six different sauces: Chipotle, Spicy Mango, Buffalo-Ranch, Plomo Picante and/ or Sour Cream. Dietary options are also allowed as well, including gluten free tortillas and vegan cheese.

Pro Tip: We recommend to always, “make it dirty”! The term is used to order fried cheese on the outside of your quesadilla! Plomo also has the option for you to make your queso dirty as well, with added chipotle and chorizo.

At 28-years-old Kasim is the owner of three locations nationwide. Two of the locations are in his old stomping ground in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
