La Villa Mexican Grill's owner, Michael, strives to make his restaurant's menu as authentic as possible. To him, that means sourcing farm-fresh ingredients and making dishes like sizzling fajitas and gargantuan burritos from scratch. Ask him for a recommendation, and he'll point you toward the diablo burrito, which barely contains a mountain of shredded chicken and ground beef beneath a tortilla covered in spicy red sauce, beef tips, and sour cream.
