Chefs use grass-fed beef, cage-free chicken, and steroid-free pulled pork that hail from sustainable sources to craft a bounty of tortilla-wrapped treats that take their names from the likes of Caddyshack, Fletch, and Seinfeld. It's this dual mindset of serious food and irreverent attitude that tinges every one of the eatery's southwestern morsels, from the Art Vandalay burrito to the John Coctostan quesadilla. As the kitchen staff crafts their daily batch of guacamole to join the lineup of six zesty salsas, diners choose from a list of more than 20 ingredients to fill out the entree that will soon be conjured before their eyes. Because dishes are made to order, each finds easy customization for vegetarian, gluten free, and low-calorie diets, and the absence of microwaves, trans-fats, and MSG keep eats wholesome. Meanwhile, a complimentary accompaniment of chips and salsa turns portions into full meals faster than an industry-grade blow-up ray.

Following Baja Fresh’s ethos set in 1990 as a healthy take on fast food, never-frozen meats sizzle atop the grill before they're tucked into made-to-order tacos and burritos. Grilled corn and flour tortillas embrace fish, carnitas, chicken, and steak, and smoky queso fundido sidles onto nachos and into burritos. Between bites, chips scoop up salsa made from farm-fresh produce rather than poured out of a can or fabricated in a space-age replicator. A complimentary salsa bar ensures no mouthful goes unspiced, and guests can scoop up their favorites as they await their dine-in, takeout, or catering orders.

"Know your strengths" is sound advice that Mexican Caf? has taken to heart?they mix more than 12 types of margaritas. These variants go beyond their signature margarita (prepped on the rocks, with or without salt) by imbuing sips with citrusy flavor. The orange crush, for example, is made-to-order with freshly squeezed oranges, whereas the agaverita replaces Triple Sec with agave nectar. These join imported beers, sangria, and specialty cocktails on a sprawling drink menu, which guests can peruse inside the vibrant dining room or on the outdoor deck.

When it comes to food, the caf? continues to embrace variety. Tacos come stuffed with chicken, steak, pork, and even chopped shrimp, sprinkled with traditional garnishes of cilantro and onion or Americanized toppings of lettuce, and tomatoes. Burritos satisfy vegetarians and meat-eaters alike with spinach and steak versions, including the "Sunken" burrito, served beneath Texas-style chili.
