Fiesta Mexican Grill's chefs dish up generous portions of authentic Mexican classics. Dinner combinations serve to assault taste buds with a cornucopia of different textures and flavors, as duos such as enchiladas and tacos arrive in time to battle their alter egos, chile poblano and enchiladas, and stop them from destroying the moon. Lunch ushers in similarly crafted pursuits, as chile poblanos, tacos, and burritos vie for placement next to beans and rice, with sightings of guacamole salad. Mouths anxiously awaiting the arrival of satisfying entrees can step away from the edge with appetizers such as guacamole, cheese, or bean dips, while nachos available in different toppings send tiny tortilla planes to taxi on tarmac tongues.

Although Onyx Bar and Grill's live entertainment rotates among comedy, music, and karaoke, one source of amusement remains constant: sports. Flat-screen TVs throughout the spacious bar showcase the day's biggest games, which patrons can enjoy over wine, spirits, or 12 draft beers. Besides sports, those libations complement feasts that put a creative spin on bar-food classics. Alongside crowning burgers with Mexican-inspired fixings like jalapeños and chipotle aioli, cooks toss wings in 12 different sauces, including honey bourbon and mango habanero. The culinary team takes a more traditional, upscale approach to main entrees with dishes like hand-carved tuna seared medium rare and paired with lemon-dill sauce.

At Hawkeyes Lounge, attached to Hawk's View Restaurant, friends get together and belly up to the bar to watch the game on flat-screen TVs, sip sudsy brews, and nosh on wings.
