Family owned and operated, Perico's serves up Mexican favorites alongside classic American edibles in a family-friendly atmosphere. Tongue-peruse the menu's offerings, which include tacos, burritos, sandwiches, burgers, and wings . Start a dinner dissertation with a melty thesis statement of shrimp poppers, which mingle shrimp with mild white cheese and green chilies ($9.99), or saunter over to saucier pastures with the enchilada dinner, which blankets two beef, chicken, bean, or cheese enchiladas with melted cheese and tucks them into a downy bed of refried beans and rice ($8.99). With a full bar and live music, Perico's sates all senses and keeps warring factions of tongue and ear buds from spilling onto jalapeño-poppered streets.
Inside La Terraza 47’s dining room, walls with faux windows, shutters, and flowerboxes recreate the feeling of sitting in a Spanish courtyard. Underneath strings of twinkling lights, servers deliver homemade chicken croquettes and sesame-crusted ahi tuna in tapas-sized dishes. Heartier appetites can attack beef enchiladas or a new york strip flavored with garlic or spanish herb butter. At night, La Terraza 47 evokes Madrid nightlife with DJs spinning tunes or musicians strumming classical guitars.
Cilantro Tamales blends authentic Mexican recipes with creative, modern touches to make its menu of entrees, appetizers, salads, and sides. Circle taste wagons around three varietals of tamales, all made fresh in-house, or clamp jaw joints around Cilantro's selection of enchiladas, tacos, quesadillas, chimichangas, and fajitas. An offering from the dessert menu makes a sweet, crispy mealcap, and is preferable to ending the meal with a excessive bout of screeching.
The culinary artisans at Bajio Mexican Grill assemble fresh ingredients to craft flavorful, authentic fare inspired by the Bajío region of Mexico. Fresh, handmade tortillas wrap slow-cooked meat in the sweet pork burrito ($8.49), a warm packet of flavor more comforting than a pillow-top mattress softly cooing lullabies. Pineapple and shrimp cha-cha in a pan of honey butter before joining greens and cheese to compose the pineapple-shrimp salad ($8.99), and the grilled mesquite-lime-chicken enchilada platter lazes in freshly made sauce ($5.29 for one; $7.49 for two) as crispy chips sun themselves nearby. For simpler feasts from south of the border, mouths can dive, sink, or somersault into quesadilla platters ($7.99) or savory shrimp taco platters ($6.29 for one; $8.99 for two).
For three generations, Burritos Mexican Grill's culinary team has made its authentic Mexican food the same way: with fresh ingredients free of preservatives or anything from a can. The results include the restaurant's namesake burritos, which can be filled with ingredients such as lean ground beef, philly-cheesesteak fixings, or a medley of cauliflower, broccoli, and carrot. Mexican staples such as tamales, spicy shrimp tacos, and nachos smothered in beans, melted cheese, and cilantro round out the menu, which includes copious options for vegetarian and gluten-free diners.
Succulent steaks and seafood serve as the foundation of Acapulco Mexican Restaurant’s menu—an eye-watering read that also includes descriptions of housemade salsas, cheese-smothered burritos, and combination plates and lunch specials. Such combos unite multiple popular dishes on the same plate, highlighting anything from quail to charbroiled chicken to top-sirloin steak. The restaurant also gives diners the chance to spice things up with fried ice cream, a bold dessert that proves once and for all that there’s more than one way to skin a snowman.
