Though it's easy to see a lot of traditional Mexican dishes upon entering La Puente, the best dishes are the ones that aren't so easy to identify. That's because they're smothered in delicious sauces?specialties ranging from burritos and tacos to sirloin steaks come blanketed in a tempting helping of salsa, mole, cheese, or other savory concoctions. But not every dish is served smothered. Staff also grill shrimp for fajitas and craft steamy bowls of menudo, a Mexican breakfast delicacy. For dessert, the chefs make fried ice cream with a a combination of hot oil and a temporary cancellation of the laws of physics. Creamy horchata, icy virgin or alcoholic margaritas, and cold pours of domestic and import beers fill glasses to accompany the zesty flavors.

Nestled within a red-brick family home built in 1893, Smedley Manor slow-cooks meat in the original onsite smokehouse, where flavorful tendrils of smoke ascend from flame-kissed cherry and apple wood.

Bites of pork ribs ($13.99/half rack; $19.99/full) fall right off the bone without coaxing or court orders and come with homestyle sides such as baked macaroni and cheese.

Swigs of Shock Top ($5) or Mug root beer ($2.25) wash it all down. Smedley Manor's historic interior transports visitors to the 19th century via rich hardwood floors, a Utah-marble fireplace, and napkins made from Mark Twain's trademark white suits.
