The culinarians at Daniel’s Mexican Restaurant draw inspiration from America’s southern neighbor to create a menu loaded with authentic Mexican fare such as burritos, enchiladas, and fajitas.

The Macho burrito—a hearty blend of rice, beans, cheese, and a choice of meat ($9.95)—is sure to put hair on your chest and beans in your beard, and the enchiladas Sunrise, topped with two eggs ($8.95), brings the importance of breakfast to dinner. The fajitas for two ($17.95 for chicken or steak; $21.95 for shrimp or fish) satisfy the appetites of two hungry humans or one snacking sasquatch and are easily washed down with a selection of Mexican beer or margaritas.
