MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Solid Tex-Mex fare, killer margaritas, and a soft-serve ice cream machine in the window—what’s not to love about this cheerful restaurant, with its brick walls, dramatic murals and inviting outdoor courtyard complete with a huge, toasty fireplace? Grab a seat-outside if you can swing it-and dig into a crowd-pleasing starter like the chili con queso "Bob Armstrong," basically a chili-laced cheese sauce bumped up with ground beef, guacamole and sour cream. Then move on to a mouthwatering taco trio, starring chili-braised short rib, grilled mahi mahi or chicken tinga; or the perfectly prepared steak fajitas, joined by sautéed peppers and charred jalapeño. Paired with fresh flour tortillas, cilantro rice and homemade refried beans, this is Tex-Mex nirvana.
