Small sombreros dot the menu at Las Piramides, differentiating the kitchen’s special creations from more traditional Mexican plates. For a slightly updated chimichanga, chefs pack succulent lobster into a tortilla before frying the bundle and smothering it with a housemade cream sauce. They also stuff un-fried burritos with interesting ingredients that go beyond chicken and beans, such as juicy philly cheesesteak fillings. Tacos, enchiladas, sizzling fajitas, and vegetarian combos cater to more classical tastes.
Las Piramides’ environment is just as colorful as its menu, with richly pigmented murals painted over dandelion-yellow walls. Cushy red booths cradle diners as they eat, as well as keep it a secret whenever there’s an accidental salsa spill.
Taqueria Mixteca’s spice-wielding culinarians shepherd taste buds on a tour of Mexico's distinctive flavorscape with a menu brimming with tortilla-centric spreads, meaty entrees, and vegetarian-friendly eats. A starter of nachos maya paves the way for heartier main courses ($4.95), such as the quesadillas ($2.50–$4.99), chimichangas ($7.50), or fajitas flaunting marinated beef ($9.95), chicken ($9.95), or shrimp ($10.95). Satiate shell cravings without licking peanut casings or ninja turtles with a hefty burrito ($4-6) or taco, which can come stuffed with your choice of meat, including chicken ($1.95) and fried pork ($1.95). Herbivores hungry enough to graze on the tassels of nearby mariachi players can sharpen their incisors on the meatless taco salad ($4.75) or cheese enchilada platter ($5.75). Conclude nosh fests with a toothsome slice of flan ($3) or tres leches cake ($2.75).

More than 10 seafood dinners get senses swimming with choices such as the salmon a la Mexicana ($12.99), and the steak and shrimp plate ($11.25) gets the land and sea on speaking terms in a massive wave of flavor. Guests can cool off their summer-seasoned palates with a margarita or cerveza from El Picante Authentic Mexican Cuisine's full bar before picking from 25 combo dinners, such as the beef burrito, enchilada, and tamale plate ($7.99), or the ever popular plate-bowl hybrid.
Cazadores takes its name from the Mexican ranchers who used to roam the rangelands where they guarded herds of cattle and cooked their meals over an open fire. The restaurant’s menu features dishes based on this style of “on the ranch” cooking with items such as fajitas and 10-ounce rib eyes prepared using rustic spices and mesquite grilling, and branded with a macho nickname. The menu also offers more than a dozen vegetarian entrees, as well as create-your-own combo plates, which allow diners to customize their meal with one, two, or three items. A full bar pours frozen or on-the-rocks margaritas in eight fruit-infused flavors, Mexican beers, and premium tequila shots.
Within Taqueria Maya's family-friendly confines, amiable servers help end tragic in-mouth flavor droughts with platters of authentic Mexican fare. Fork-wielding folks can rip into a combo dinner that unites one taco, two enchiladas, rice, and beans in hunger-busting harmony, and red-meat aficionados can tuck into protein-packed mouthfuls of the carne asada tacos laced with cilantro and onion. Lunch specials such as a large quesadilla or a pair of tamales sooth stomach rumbles and, like politicians eager to show their commitment to a healthy lifestyle, they publicly lie atop a bed of rice and beans. Taqueria Maya stocks Jarritos, a Mexican soft drink, in multiple flavors, providing diners with a thirst-quenching alternative to standing outside with their mouths open until a thunderstorm strikes.
