“This restaurant is proof that you don’t have to be fancy shmancy to be a great eatery. Mexican food fans like all its locations for their quality cuisine and spirited sports-viewing vibe. They have a decent selection of vegetarian options, but for you traditional meat-loving fans of south-of-the-border grub, look for items like burritos, arroz con pollo and fajitas as well as fresh takes on chicken, pork, steak and seafood-centered entrees. You can also create your own combo featuring building-block items like tacos, enchiladas, tamales and more. When I eat there, I’m partial to their chimichanga — two flour tortillas (I prefer mine deep-fried) filled with chicken or beef (or one of each) and drenched in cheese sauce. Yum!”
