Ocho Mexican Grill’s chefs twist traditional fare into gourmet cuisine with a menu built on house-made salsas, artisan meats, and locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. Patrons customize up to 800 entree possibilities, first choosing their meal’s form—burrito, bowl, salad, or tacos—then stuffing it with fixings such as grilled chicken, shredded beef, mahi-mahi, or tofu, and topping it with an array of veggies, salsas, or sauces. Brown or cilantro-lime white rice cushions the proteins as fajita veggies, diced jicama, and mangos add sweetness to savory bites. Meals bathe in fresh salsas ranging from mild tomatillos concoctions to smoky chipotle-pepper drizzles to fiery habanero sauces. The surf ‘n’ turf combination platter pairs shrimp and steak, and the Healthy Chickfu partners chicken—the straight-and-narrow hard worker—and tofu—the free-spirited slacker—who entertain taste buds with a series of antics emphasizing their differences.
Guests order at the counter, and then dine at the pub-style tables or take meals to go to enjoy at a busy intersection. Within the warm yet modern atmosphere, industrial-chic lighting sconces illuminate orange-and-green earth-toned walls and the dark-wood flooring.
