At El Mezcal, nachos are so much more than chips covered in cheese. There are 10 types of nachos, from beef- and bean-smothered ones to ones sporting zesty grilled shrimp. The large selection is indicative of the menu as a whole, which compiles several kinds of enchiladas, quesadillas, burritos, and tacos. Thankfully, 20 different combination platters allow diners to sample across these categories. There are also signature dishes, such as the El Mezcal Special: grilled rib-eye steak and shrimp mixed with veggies, served with rice, beans, and tortillas. At the bar, servers mix margaritas and pour homemade sangria, in addition to opening bottles of imported beers.

As noted in the Memphis Flyer, Sascha Parker made her first batch of unorthodox deviled eggs––topped with bacon, lettuce, and tomato––as snacks for her officemates. Friends and coworkers snatched up additional batches by the dozen, and as her egg-based treats took the Memphis area by storm, she was practically forced into business. Today, as the owner of Eggcellence, she has expanded her repertoire, drawing from a life's worth of cooking experience and a degree from L'École Culinaire, to create even more experimental morsels. Her spiced deviled-egg combinations include the barbecue with smoky barbecued chicken and cabbage, the Hawaiian with pineapple and teriyaki-glazed Spam, and the California with crab and avocado. Each is handcrafted from fresh ingredients, though Sascha limits her treats to three toppings to keep flavors bright.

El Porton Mexican Restaurant has sated cravings for fresh, healthy ingredients for more than two decades, serving up authentic Mexican lunches and dinners that complement the bar’s array of 85 tequilas. Amid golden walls that evoke a warm afternoon in a tropical cantina, guests kick-start stomachs by watching chefs craft lime-infused guacamole tableside. From the kitchen, beef and shrimp fajitas sizzle, wafting aromas of onion and bell pepper that transform into cartoon hands to lure in noses. Warm days open El Porton's patio, where sunshine heightens the flavors of make-your-own combo platters spread with chile rellenos, tostadas, and burritos, as well as USDA steaks aged a minimum of 21 days. Tequila shots arrive in flights or individually, and customizable margaritas in flavors such as mango and classic lime pour forth from salt-rimmed glasses to accentuate entrees and fuel conversations about Mexico's hidden agave rivers.

Glass star-shaped lanterns hang from the restaurant's ceiling at varying lengths, giving guests the impression they're wading through a nebula. Once seated, the full picture comes into view with festive red walls and banquettes the color of fresh-picked cilantro. Soon after the order, kitchen skillets begin to sizzle with the sliced steak and marinated chicken that will fill burritos, enchiladas, and warm flour tortillas. Crazy Cactus also features jumbo margaritas and homemade sangria to cap off the meal.
