Small sombreros dot the menu at Las Piramides, differentiating the kitchen’s special creations from more traditional Mexican plates. For a slightly updated chimichanga, chefs pack succulent lobster into a tortilla before frying the bundle and smothering it with a housemade cream sauce. They also stuff un-fried burritos with interesting ingredients that go beyond chicken and beans, such as juicy philly cheesesteak fillings. Tacos, enchiladas, sizzling fajitas, and vegetarian combos cater to more classical tastes.
Las Piramides’ environment is just as colorful as its menu, with richly pigmented murals painted over dandelion-yellow walls. Cushy red booths cradle diners as they eat, as well as keep it a secret whenever there’s an accidental salsa spill.
Taqueria Mixteca’s spice-wielding culinarians shepherd taste buds on a tour of Mexico's distinctive flavorscape with a menu brimming with tortilla-centric spreads, meaty entrees, and vegetarian-friendly eats. A starter of nachos maya paves the way for heartier main courses ($4.95), such as the quesadillas ($2.50–$4.99), chimichangas ($7.50), or fajitas flaunting marinated beef ($9.95), chicken ($9.95), or shrimp ($10.95). Satiate shell cravings without licking peanut casings or ninja turtles with a hefty burrito ($4-6) or taco, which can come stuffed with your choice of meat, including chicken ($1.95) and fried pork ($1.95). Herbivores hungry enough to graze on the tassels of nearby mariachi players can sharpen their incisors on the meatless taco salad ($4.75) or cheese enchilada platter ($5.75). Conclude nosh fests with a toothsome slice of flan ($3) or tres leches cake ($2.75).
Mango's Mexican Grill and Bar's multitudinous menu of Mexican staples mixed with American favorites sates bellies with fresh tortillas and the delicious fillings that accompany them.

Starch-swathed staples include the burrito mexicano ($8.97) and the chori pollo platillo, a platter of grilled chorizo sausage and chicken topped with melted cheese ($9.89). Picky palates might enjoy a simple cheeseburger ($6.89), and culinary connoisseurs may prefer to abandon their PBJ-BLT hybrids in favor of the pollo ala pasta, breaded chicken breast stuffed with onion, cilantro, avocado, and cheese laid to rest on a bed of pasta teeming with veggies and chipotle-ranch sauce ($9.29).
Louie's Grill Fusion jazzes up everyday meals with south-of-the-border flavors from Mexico and Cuba that rouse snoozing, spice-craving taste buds.
