The story of La Fonda De Los Lobos begins in Taos, New Mexico. Owner Octaviano "Otis" Trujillo spent his childhood there before moving to Minnesota, and it's where he first tasted the food he would serve at his restaurant years later. Trujillo's mother, Mama Feloniz, taught him everything he knows about authentic Mexican cuisine. She must have impressed upon him the importance of geography, as the bulk of the eatery's ingredients are still shipped from New Mexico, where?perhaps not coincidentally?Mama Feloniz still resides.

Of course, Trujillo has still put his own stamp on his restaurant, which has been a neighborhood mainstay for nearly 40 years. His influence is apparent in the homey, cantina-style atmosphere as well as in the menu, which features reinvented staples such as chimichangas and loboritos (the latter best described as a taco within a burrito). The restaurant also houses a lively sports bar on the lower level as well as a new patio with its own fire pit. And there's no missing out on the margaritas, which come in a variety of flavors; try the Pink Cadillac, which comes with a splash of cranberry juice and its own parking space.

Traditional Mexican flavors typify the menu at El Parian, from the spicy chorizo that adds a kick to nachos, burritos, and chilaquiles to the mole sauce that covers enchiladas. Vegetarians can also get their fill with mushroom quesadillas, chile rellenos, and bean burritos, boosting spiciness from a selection of hot sauces that graces tables in the dining room and on the patio. To wash down meals, guests can sip tequila, imported Mexican beers, or monster margaritas that measure up to 60 ounces and growl if left unattended.

The former owner of local hotspot Taco Morelos, restaurateur Gaspar Perez now reigns over the kitchen at Las Teresitas Mexican Grill. Here, he's ramped up his well-known Mexican favorites with high-quality ingredients and bold flavors, and this time, he's keeping the entire operation in the family. According to City Pages—which awarded Las Teresitas the 2012 Best Taco award for its chorizo taco—Perez's wife waits tables as his cousin cooks up fajitas, mole chicken, and tacos stuffed with brisket, Mexican-style barbecue pork, or beef cheek. The family's even in the restaurant's name, which Perez chose in honor of his mother (Teresa) and his daughter (also Teresa), who gained popularity at Taco Morelos for greeting customers at the door with a smile and fresh tortilla chips.

The free chips are still a thing. In the center of the casual dining room stands a complementary chips-and-salsa bar, showcasing a spread of nine colorful homemade salsas in varying degrees of heat. Perez encourages guests to sample these salsas—which include tomato chipotle and chili de arbol varieties—and use them to customize their meals or secretly spice up a friend's horchata.

At El Burrito Cubano, a family of epicureans funnels three decades of restaurant experience into a menu of build-your-own burritos and classic sandwiches. The clan's Cuban heritage infuses sandwiches stuffed with roasted pork, ham, swiss cheese, and pickles, which diners may recognize from the lunch menu of one of their other restaurants, Conga Latin Bistro. Brimming with seafood ceviche, curried tilapia, or shrimp creole, the Burrito Marinero summons maritime flavors as vibrant as Poseidon's party yacht. Tropical beverages such as pineapple-mango smoothies and strawberry-melon punch add a dose of sweetness.

Tortilla chips with salsa bar and desserts complete each catered event, and customers can opt for burrito-boxed lunches and any add-ons.
