El Salto remolds entrenched notions of Mexican fare by twisting traditional recipes into modern from-scratch displays of fresh ingredients. Peepers rove over a large menu that features house specialties such as the burrito California, swollen like a windsock in Tornado Alley, with chicken ($9.25) or grilled steak ($10.50) and garden-reaped fixings. A freshly minted culinary brainchild, the tocino camaron platter clatters to tables with a house sauce and generous serving of seared shrimp bound in bacon manacles ($10.25).

Miguel Mexican Fusion Grill's chefs combine international dishes and Mexican zest into a fusion menu. Diners can whet appetites with mexican egg rolls, filled with refried beans, chorizo, and cheese ($6), then forge ahead to sautéed shrimp skinny dipping in garlic-butter-lime sauce ($15), their shrimp suspenders and top hats abandoned in the kitchen. Steak-fajita fanatics can pack the carne asada's tortillas with a mélange of meat, sautéed onion, and red and green poblano pepper, topped with a shot of tequila for flavor ($13). Like a dozen identical children, a dozen homemade tamales ($15) are hard to take care of alone, but brave patrons can try. Little ones can order from a menu for visitors 10 years old and younger, and diners can nibble at their leisure from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays-Wednesdays and from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. or later Thursdays-Saturdays.

Framed between two neon cacti, La Quesadilla Mexican Grill's imposing sign leads the way into a nexus of Mexican staples crafted from family recipes. Tortilla shells bundle meats, veggies, and seafood into tacos and burritos that share plate space with grilled 16-ounce T-bone steaks and chicken fillets. Glasses of house-made horchata and sangria dot the casual eatery’s booths and tabletops, and 12 different desserts, such as deep-fried sopapillas dusted with cinnamon, cap off meals better than an edible mortar board.

Mario Dovalina and Edwin Ptak established the original Pepe's Mexican Restaurant in 1967 in order to satisfy diners craving authentic Mexican dishes. With more than 40 locations in the Chicagoland area and northwestern Indiana and traditional eats that are sold across the United States and even in Mexico, Pepe's appeases a wide audience with its hearty options. Appetizers such as chips and fresh guacamole made daily or chili con queso ready bellies for veggie burritos bursting with seasonal vegetables. Flat-screen TVs broadcasting sports games or ballerina-wrestling matches dot the spacious walls at many of the chain’s casual eateries, keeping diners in their seats long after their shrimp, pork, or vegetable fajitas are finished.

At Tequila Restaurante, green peppers and onions sizzle and snap in steaming skillets, as much a soundtrack to any traditional Mexican restaurant as mariachi and corrido music. Many of the other sensory details of an eatery in Mexico fill the Crown Point restaurant, including the citric bite of ceviche and the aromas of carne asada. Tequila Restaurante serves up traditional margaritas as well as those made with fresh banana, banana liquor, brown sugar, cinnamon, and other unorthodox ingredients. The dining room is alive with the vibrant colors associated with the country; crisp white table linens complement the red, orange, and green walls, and a string of white vine lights curlicues across the restaurant’s ceiling.
