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.

Housemade marinades infuse Tortuga's Mexican Restaurant’s meaty dishes with pops of flavor. Chefs drench fajitas’ skirt steak in a marinade and saturate creamy chipotle-chicken pieces in a smoky jalapeño cream sauce. Lime juice with cilantro and a spicy red chili also flavor meats, which are then stuffed inside a burrito, served on a bed of rice, or displayed on a fluffy pillow. Meat-free dishes include cheesy enchiladas and a trio of tacos filled with beans, cheese, and guacamole.

Tuck into Mexican favorites such as the burrito, which nestles chicken, beef, or pork with a blend of beans, cheese, and veggies in a flour tortilla for a meal more portable than a microscopic duffle bag ($5.50).

Tacos and tequila are pretty standard fare at any Mexican restaurant. But Casa Rico Tacos & Tequila ups the ante with gourmet fillings such as tilapia drizzled in chipotle cream sauce, and pork carnitas with roasted pineapple and red onions. As for the house tequilas, they're infused with spicy flavors including cinnamon and tres chilies. The latter goes into one of the restaurant's many specialty margaritas, a fiery concoction made with mango, fresh mint, and passion fruit involved in a torrid love triangle.

Since 1987, Casa Rico has been serving recipes crafted by owner and executive chef Renu. She prepares many regional specialties, including molcajete—a stew with cactus, potatoes, and cheese—as well as a Monterey-style grill combo with skirt steak and chipotle shrimp. In keeping with the food, the dining rooms have a south-of-the-border look; Mexican art hangs on pink and yellow walls, Spanish tile covers the ceiling, and striped blankets add a colorful touch to banquet tables.
