Martin Hernandez grew up with 14 siblings in the city of San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico. That's where their community taught them the importance of family and hard work, but no one more so than their mother. She created flavorful, fresh meals for the family, never cutting any corners. As the owner of Primas Mexican Grill, Martin has the chance to recreate not only the homemade meals, but also the festive family atmosphere at his restaurant.
Along with a talented staff, Martin pays homage to his mother with traditional Mexican house specialties: pico de gallo, smothered carnitas, fish tacos, and fajitas, to name a few. But the menu doesn't adhere strictly to south-of-the-border fare. There are also American favorites such as burgers and steak served with fries.
The chefs at Los Vaqueros offer up a selection of traditional Mexican cuisine. With dishes made from scratch daily, patrons can dip chips into bowls of hand-blended guacamole or extra-spicy molten queso. Enchiladas nestle beneath a bed of cheese and red sauces alongside seasoned rice and beans. Fajitas swaddle chicken, steak, or veggies in tortillas met with sautéed onions, peppers, and fresh jalapeños. Other authentic dishes include tortas made on homemade bread, sopes, and gorditas.
Within the olive-green walls of La Hacienda Authentic Mexican Restaurant, diners devour sizzling shrimp enchiladas, chicken quesadillas, and grilled steak tacos. At a full bar, servers mix and other libations.
Chips and salsa, the ultimate party snack, is served with every lunch and dinner enjoyed inside La Fiesta Restaurante Mexicano. The complimentary treat accompanies platefuls of tacos, burritos, and quesadillas stuffed with beef tips, beans, and pork. Chefs build each dish from scratch, including the Peruvian ceviche, a feast of cubed tilapia slow-cooked in a garlic, lime, and salt marinade, which requires a special order via phone or singing telegram two hours in advance. The rest of the menu takes much less time to prepare, from the sizzling fajitas to strawberry-flavored margaritas.
