The chefs at Mexico Lindo dish up recipes hailing from the western Mexican state of Jalisco, while bartenders pour Mexican beers, wines, and tequilas. The menu includes sautéed squash blossoms, grilled meats, an array of seafood entrees, and classic burritos smothered in sauces or kisses. Many diners opt to end their eating experience on a sweet note, ordering up desserts of flan, tres leches cake, and sopapillas, or fried pastries.
Planet Sub sidesteps the flavorless land mines of days-old bread, opting for filling-packed subs and sandwiched meaty delights. The menu may differ slightly between the two locations, but omnipresent signature subs cross state lines to sate hungering masses, such as the bacon-bolstered mega roast beef ($4.69/$7.29 ) and the Planet BBQ, a saucy concoction stacked with ham, turkey, and roast beef ($3.99/$6.99 ). Vegetarian options abound, so meat abstainers can try the spicy cheese sub ($4.49/$6.99 ) or the pesto bello ($4.99/$7.19), which is loaded with portobello mushrooms, red peppers, and a tomato-garlic pesto as smooth and suave as an Italian R&B crooner.

If it's not in season, Cafe Chilingo won't serve it. The chefs are so devoted to fresh, perfectly ripe produce, that they create a new menu every week. In winter, that might include an arugula salad with pear and goat cheese, whereas spring might bring about pineapple-adorned caribbean chicken kebabs on a bed of greens. The regularly changing selection may mean diners need to stay on their toes, but it also ensures they'll get the most flavorful meal possible. Even the beverages observe the seasons—hot cocoa is available during colder weather, while sunny days and volcano eruptions bring fresh-squeezed lemonade. The café does feature a few enduring dishes, including classic and creative sandwiches such as the corned-beef reuben and the fried-alligator poboy, and always offers gluten-free and vegetarian options for those with dietary restrictions.
