Though coveting thy neighbor’s wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire.

  • For $10, you get $20 worth of Mexican dinner fare.
  • For $20, you get $40 worth of Mexican dinner fare. <p>

The culinary craftspeople at La Chimenea stoke south-of-the-border cravings with an extensive menu of authentic and homemade Mexican dishes. Patrons unlock mouth gates for a quintet of traditional starters, such as the Tres Amigos platter, which goads crispy tortilla chips to skinny-dip through dunk tanks of guacamole, chili con queso, and authentic bean dip ($6.99). Main courses fill tabletops in the form of salads, soups, and traditional entrees, including the Acapulco’s beef enchilada duo ($8.29) or the Cuernavaca’s three chicken and cheese burritos ($10.49), which arrive wrapped in tortilla shells that, like an edible piñata, beg to be opened with a fork or wiffle ball bat. A separate kids’ menu sates tiny tummies with smaller dishes such a taco or chimichanga flying solo through a field of rice and beans ($4.99). Feasters can culminate meals or start building indoor snowmen with a scoop of helado frito, which satisfies sweet cravings with vanilla ice cream encased in a protective coating of fried graham cracker ($5.99).

Throughout gustatory excursions, munchers enjoy the warm glow emanating from the dining room’s stone fireplace, or soak in fresh air on the outdoor patio. Hand-painted artwork bedecks each restaurant’s walls and authentic tunes escape from a live mariachi band every Thursday at the Germantown location, where the staff encourages diners to challenge chimichangas to dance-offs.

La Chimenea

Punctuated by festive colors, a plentiful bar, and ample outdoor seating, La Chimenea's two locations put diners in the mood to celebrate. Germantown owner Hector Jimenez—who also has a website dedicated to healthy Mexican food—offers dishes that run the gamut of Mexican staples, much like his Saukville counterpart, owner Luis Calix. Menu items include homemade guacamole and sirloin-steak fajitas, along with more innovative creations, such as the specialty chilies en Nogada, which fills two poblano peppers with ground beef, peaches, apples, and nuts before slathering it all in a creamy cashew sauce. At the bar, a variety of tequilas anoint lime, strawberry, raspberry, or other flavored margaritas, and patio seating keeps the seasons at bay with a fire pit during the winter months and a restaurant-sized snow globe over the summer.
