The breakfast menu showcases eggs in nearly every form, whether over-easy up alongside salsa, corn-tortilla strips, cheese, and grilled ham in the huevos ahogados ($7.25), or fried with steak, tomatoes, onions, and poblanos in the huevos a la bistek ranchero ($8.25). The El Gringo omelet fills plates with a half-pound of bacon, steak, and chorizo ($8.99), and grilled breakfast burritos such as the sonora with eggs, steak, salsa, and cheese jolt palates awake ($6.49).
La Botana Grill
Although botana means "snack” in Spanish, La Botana Grill specializes in full-grown Mexican meals. Starters of house-made tortilla chips come with freshly made salsas and chipotle bean dip. After this prelude come entrees of fresh shrimp and tilapia, grilled to perfection in the house-specialty dishes. Then there’s the cantina tacos, which pull together flavors from various regions throughout Mexico, and fusion plates such as the sonoran dog—a beast of a hot dog that comes wrapped in bacon and smothered with beans, chorizo, and heaping piles of condiments.
La Botana's hearty breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes can be enjoyed al fresco on a patio lit by fiesta lights and a flat-screen TV that often broadcasts the latest Mexican soccer games. Live music sometimes rings out over the open space, a much better meal soundtrack than recordings of synchronized chewing.
I love La Botana! This is where I like to bring out-of-town guests, and where I often go when a craving for tacos strikes.Lia S., Yelp, 4/2/13
