  • Salsarita's
    Salsarita's swiftly serves a spicy sea of Mexican dishes, with a myriad of fresh ingredients available to customize any meal. Peruse the menu in search of an ideal south-of-the-border entree, such as a bodacious burrito ($4.59–$5.59 for a small or $5.99–$6.99 for a large) or a tantalizing taco ($1.99–$2.49). Fusion-minded food-lovers can try one of Salsarita's pizzas ($5.49) of the taco, vegetarian, white, or BBQ variety. Sides such as chips and guacamole ($2.59) sidle up to non-tortilla options such as nachos ($5.99–$6.99) or taco salads ($4.99–$6.99), a dish born when a claustrophobic bunch of lettuce refused to climb into the overcrowded taco shell.

  • Pinches Tacos
    In today's chatter-heavy world, delicious secrets rarely last a day, let alone more than a century. Yet according to LA Teen Festival magazine, the Anaya family behind Pinches Tacos has managed to guard its coveted mole recipe for more than 120 years. The sauce's undisclosed ingredients have transferred from bough to bough of the Anaya family tree, passing through the generations alongside methods for hand making tortillas, marinating carne asada, and blindfolding tour groups that walk through the kitchen. The authentic eats have also made the trip from Mexico to California and Alabama. The Homewood location is owned by Ty Taylor, whom befriended the Anayas while living in Hollywood and moonlighting as an actor. Running his own Pinches location brought him back home to his native Alabama after years out West in the restaurant and entertainment industry. “I love reconnecting with friends I haven’t seen in twenty years,” he told the Homewood Star last year. “Friends stop by weekly to say ‘hello’ and share a drink. It’s great to be back in a neighborhood surrounded by new and old friends.” The Star also reports that the restaurant's name comes from the Spanish slang for cook, "pinche," which Pancho Villa would reputedly shout whenever he craved a taco meal. Today, the tacos on the Anayas’ menu would have made Pancho beg. They come cradling everything from slow-broiled and citrus-scented pork to shrimp and cactus, exploring the full possibilities of fresh ingredients and authentic Mexican combinations. Burritos, tortas, and sopes round out the list of street-food staples, carrying with them everything from Angus beef to oaxacan cheese.
