Price Scale

This "Mexican bistro and margarita bar," as described on its website, specializes in the kind of clever, modern Mexican food rarely found on fast-casual taqueria-style menus. We love the Mexidog, a take on the bacon-wrapped Sonoran hot dog, served with fries drenched in creamy white queso, though more traditional dishes such as beef cheek tostadas and mole enchiladas are also winners. During the daily happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m., try one of the fresh-fruit margaritas; hibiscus, tamarind, and prickly pear are among the best (and most authentically Mexican) flavors.
