The family responsible for the rise of Casa Del Rey has been designing Mexican eats worthy of kings since 1972. Every day, chefs whip up house-made chips and salsa, stacking them alongside meals prepared in 100% canola oil without the presence of harmful substances such as trans fats, MSG, or radioactive beans. Whether catering for large groups or reloading the restaurant's tables, they tackle traditional dishes such as huevos rancheros, chili Colorado, and specialty burritos, and they also prepare fresh and hearty salads for health-conscious consumers. Both Casa Del Rey locations have full bars with domestic and imported beer, margaritas, and house alcoholic and nonalcoholic smoothies. The Sierra Madre shop welcomes private diners to a small banquet room and claims territory out on the sidewalk, where patrons can savor their meals while celebrating man's invention of sunshine.

Though it sounds like a mixed drink, the campechana cocktail is actually a meal. Diners spear shrimp, octopus, and chunks of white abalone as they swim in cocktail sauce flavored with avocado and cilantro. The seafood stew is just one of Cabrera’s house specialties, which populate nearly half of the Mexican eatery’s menu. Other specialty dishes include steak ranchero, marinated sirloin served alongside grilled cactus and jalapeños, and salmon con salsa de arandano, a fresh, pan-roasted fish steeped in cranberry chipotle sauce. Traditionalists can take comfort in the eateries’ abidance to serving food on plates rather than mini hovercrafts, and south-of-the-border staples such as mole-drenched chicken and burritos blanketed with melted cheese.

Since wrapping up the contents of their first grande burrito in 1974, The Original Peppers’ crew of chefs have continued to sate customers’ cravings for spicy, south-of-the-border fare thanks to their vast menu of Mexican food. Within the bustling kitchen, chefs can be found wrangling ingredients into traditional Mexican dishes ranging from burritos and enchiladas to fajitas and tostadas, crafting homemade tortillas on Wednesday and Thursday. While many dishes feature meats such as certified Angus beef and deep-fried pork, the culinary team also architects a host of seafood specialties starring jumbo scallops, seasoned halibut, and crab to appeal to the seafaring palates of humans and bears dressed like humans.

Family owned since opening its doors in 2006, Zapata Vive pairs its authentic Mexican cuisine with familial hospitality. Patrons gather around tables to slice into cheese-topped burritos or soft tacos or sup from sizzling fajita plates, kept at exactly the same temperature as the sun over Mexico. Zapata Vive also caters to diners who rise with the sun with breakfast dishes, including a tostada omelet with tortilla strips, and takes care of those who rise with the sunset with a full bar stocked with margaritas, wines, and domestic and imported beers.

A colorful sign juts from Manny’s El Loco, proudly proclaiming “World Famous Burritos Since 1971.” Inside, chefs busily pack the eatery’s claim to fame with carnitas, carne asada, and chicken, or up the ante with rib-eye steak or chorizo. Forks and knives find a place at Manny’s as well, thanks to taco salads tossed with meat and avocado and enchilada platters paired with authentic rice and beans. The kitchen crew incorporates hamburgers and french fries into its primarily Mexican menu, and helps customers tackle the morning or their nemesis with eggs prepared any style, which they can take to go or enjoy on the outdoor patio.

The Gringos Tacos family of guacamole gurus has retained their taqueria's catering roots while expanding into a restaurant and slinging tortillas from its very own food truck. American influences peek through in heaps of french-fry nachos, chipotle-aioli-drizzled BLT tacos, and guacamole made with Grant Wood paintings. Using high-quality ingredients and eschewing lard helps keep the menu of creative Mexican cuisine tasting fresh.
