What's not to love about this cheerful restaurant with solid Tex-Mex fare, killer margaritas—some with mezcal twists—and a soft-serve ice cream machine in the window? The inviting courtyard, complete with a huge fireplace, is the cherry on top.
Grab a seat—outside if you can—and dig into a crowd-pleasing starter like the chili con queso, or the light-but-satisfying crab tostada. Then move on to a mouthwatering taco trio, starring chili-braised short rib, grilled mahi mahi, and zesty chicken tinga; or the steak fajitas, joined by good renditions of clearly not-an-afterthought sides, like beans and rice. While the holy trinity of Tex-Mex cuisine—burritos, fajitas, and tacos—are solid hits, the kitchen can also whip up delicious pork ribs.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
