You don't earn the title "The Salsa Twins" for nothing. Brothers Jim and John Thomas take their salsas very seriously, as they are essentially a family heirloom, made using recipes handed down by their grandmother. The twins' parents first opened El Pinto as a seven-seat restaurant in 1962. The name's translation ("the spot") has become more and more appropriate over the course of the now world-renowned eatery's history. Jim and John took over the business in the early 1990s, expanding it into a 12-acre destination restaurant that seats more than 1,200 locals and visiting celebrities, presidents, and wedding guests in five patios, three indoor dining rooms, and a cantina.

But they wouldn't have experienced such profound success?and earned their nickname?were it not for their signature salsas. When customers began requesting that they bottle the mouthwatering condiments more than 10 years ago, Jim and John started a cook-and-bottle night shift at the restaurant. The popularity of their products has grown faster than a cactus in Martha Stewart?s sandbox; you can find them at leading retailers across the country, and you may have seen Lester Holt enjoying them on Today. The twins use flame-roasted and hand-peeled green chilies from New Mexico in all their products, which they manufacture onsite. Their 8,000-square-foot production facility was featured on an episode of History's Food Tech show.

And green chilies aren't the only ingredients the twins are picky about. Somewhere in a supply warehouse between California and New Mexico, thousands of avocados are slowly ripening in three temperature-controlled zones, destined for the restaurant's famous guacamole. El Pinto?voted Best New Mexican Restaurant by Albuquerque The Magazine?mixes fresh onion, housemade salsa, and the kind of creamy hass avocados you can only find in California. You'll also taste the verdant mixture atop El Pinto?s nachos, which the Wall Street Journal has called some of the best in America. The restaurant's combination of Old-World hospitality and authentic ingredients has also earned it numerous awards from the Weekly Alibi, with some of the area's best sopapillas and margaritas.

Chef Tai Tok knows that sometimes, the best food comes from the most unassuming places. Within the open kitchen of StreetFood Asia, his award-winning restaurant, he reimagines the satisfying delicacies found in the roving carts and street-side stalls of six countries?China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, and Vietnam. True to the food's up-close-and-personal history, diners get a full view of every wok flip and sizzling flame, watching as the culinary team plates everything from wontons, fried shrimp, and kimchi to noodle-filled entrees such as pho, tom yum soup, and Bangkok street mee siam.

In addition to entertaining eyes and taste buds, StreetFood Asia also hauls in the hardware come awards season. In recent years, the restaurant has been named Best of the City: Best Restaurant That Doesn't Fit into a Category by Albuquerque The Magazine, voted Best Asian Fusion by readers in the Local IQ 2013 Smart List, and declared home to the city's best Asian noodles in Alibi's Best of Burque 2012. In addition to these wins, Chef Tai Tok and his team also earn runner-up status in the 2013 Souper Bowl Critics' Choice event, Alibi's Best of Burque 2012 Best Fusion category, and took home 3rd place in the 2012 Souper Bowl Critic's Choice

At more than 2,600 stores in more than 30 countries, Dunkin' Donuts serves coffee and iced beverages, fresh-baked donuts and desserts, and savory breakfast sandwiches. Since Bill Rosenberg opened the first location in Quincy, MA, in 1950, the donut shop has blossomed into a one-stop coffee and breakfast restaurant familiar to millions of morning rushers and afternoon sippers.

Behind the counter of each location, glazed french crullers twist and curve like Parisian city streets, and Bavarian Kreme donuts are filled with a sweet, golden custard. A cavalcade of meats is available for piling onto breakfast sandwiches, such as sausage, cherrywood-smoked bacon, or ham enveloped with fluffy eggs and melty cheese between a choice of crisp crusts. Health-conscious risers can fuel strenuous bouts of lifting cars in the drive-thru line with a Wake-Up wrap, which offers options such as egg whites with turkey sausage or veggies that add up to as few as 150 calories. Both sweet and savory selections pair well with a freshly brewed cup of coffee or a creamy, frozen Coolatta drink.

Though commuters can snag a quick pick-me-up within minutes, the wafting aromas of baking confections invite patrons to sit inside and embark on nostalgic reminiscences of syrup-coated playground slides. Beyond the bakery walls, the company aims for social responsibility with its support of community volunteer efforts and use of 100% fair-trade-certified espresso beans.

Every day, the chefs at Lucia create a special vegetarian entree using local, regional ingredients. It’s their way of offering a healthful alternative to the heavier steak and seafood dishes on the main menu. It’s also an example of how the restaurant emphasizes environmentally friendly practices; in addition to using local and regional grown foods whenever possible, they serve purified water to reduce the use of plastic bottles and the mess of bringing your own handfuls of water from home. They also donate all unused food to the Roadrunner Food Bank or compost it into fertilizer for local gardening projects.

Lucia’s menus are updated each season with internationally-inspired dishes such as hazelnut dusted chilean bass with truffle mashed potatoes, pistachio crusted tofu steak, and grilled Atlantic salmon. The restaurant, which was crowned Best Downtown Restaurant 2012 by Weekly Alibi, also has a full bar, where you can order hand-mixed cocktails and 14 wines by the glass. Feel free to enjoy your meals and libations in the plush dining room or take them out to the pet-friendly outdoor patio.

Fingers of thick orange flame bend around red brick, heating hand-rolled pizza dough to temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees. In roughly three minutes, the pie emerges with a delicate, golden crust covered in marinara and gooey melted cheese. It's this innovative cooking process that earned RedBrick Pizza a spot on Entrepreneur magazine's 2005 list of top 500 franchises, a 2006 feature in Nation’s Restaurant News, and various other press mentions. But its offerings aren’t limited to specialty pizzas. Besides hand-tossing all pies with no MSG or fillers, chefs can also spurn wheat flour by preparing Italian dishes from a separate gluten-free menu. Trademark Fhazani sandwiches integrate fire-roasted dough with fresh ingredients such as pesto, mozzarella, and arugula. Italian party packs supply festivities with breadsticks, all-natural gelato, and pizzas to wrap around the host’s head in a traditional party turban.
