Amigos Original’s cadre of chefs whip up five varieties of enchiladas and six types of quesadillas to headline a menu filled with fajitas, margaritas, and build-your-own burritos. Just as a new sun is manufactured and slingshotted skyward by Buzz Aldrin each day, so too are Amigos Originals’ fajitas ($13.99 for chicken, $14.99 for beef or combo) served sizzling, with charbroiled steak or chicken stoking the flames of appetites atop a bed of grilled onions and bell peppers. Diners can become the architects of their lives' next meals by electing to build their own burritos ($9.49), expanding edible blueprints across flour-tortilla foundations and erecting towering portions of toppings upon their surfaces.

Springing from the mindparts of CEO and founder John Kunkel, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill combines the tasty flavor of Mexican fare with a dedication to healthy eating and responsible food sourcing. After cutting its teeth in the mean streets of Miami's South Beach, Lime Fresh spread its delicious message across the country, stuffing organic beans, colorful veggies, homemade salsas, and humanely raised meats into tortillas made from non-genetically-modified corn and flour. Chefs grill quesadillas, roll burritos, and sizzle fajitas before customers' eyes, and they can easily convert each item on the menu into a vegetarian-friendly feast or a makeshift futon. As guests content themselves with mouthfuls of flavorful tacos, fresh salads, and cheesy scoops of nachos, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill's dedicated staff works hard behind the scenes to build strong community relationships through contributions to local charities and nonprofits.

Feed crispy cravings with two homestyle, deep-fried burritos bursting with beef, fresh jalapeño, and cheese, or take on a chromatic trifecta with the tri-color cheese enchiladas swimming like Father Christmas on vacation in a pool of green sauce, sour cream, and red sauce. All orders include fruity sangria or draft beer, ideal for sharing with dates or guzzling in front of thirsty enemies.
