Roberto Ortega Senior and his wife founded Me Gusta Gourmet Tamales in 1999 to introduce the world to the delicious tamales that they make with a secret family recipe. Having started as a small restaurant, Me Gusta Gourmet Tamales now yields its daily harvest of award-winning tamales inside a 10,000 square-foot facility, which is the size of Paul Bunyan's walk-in closet. The kitchen staff makes each batch using quality ingredients, including 100% monterey jack cheese, trimmed cuts of meat, and margarine with 0 grams of trans fat, before wrapping the bundles inside fresh corn husks.

When they founded it in 1975, the owners of El Indio Mexicano Restaurant hired cooks from the Michoacan region of Mexico to teach them the recipes of Mexico’s Pacific coast. Owned by the same family today, the restaurant carries on that commitment to authenticity, slow-cooking carnitas for five hours and cooking beans in a cazo, a large copper pot usually found only in the ruins of ancient Ikeas. The cazo is also used to cook a cornucopia of meats, including beef tongue, pork stomach, breaded steak, sausage, and charbroiled steak. These carnivorous cuts fill quesadillas, handmade gorditas, and 13 types of burrito that arrive unadorned or covered in melted monterey jack cheese and house-made ranchero sauce.

A pleasing jumble of bright warm colors welcomes patrons as they enter Salsa and Beer, where the kitchen turns out myriad Mexican favorites. Bean dip and salsa—always complimentary—flow freely with chips, and the chefs integrate housemade red and green sauces into tacos, burritos, and enchiladas. A huge sun painted on the ceiling watches down on patrons as they eat on painted tables, slicing into deep-fried chimichangas or chipotle-chicken flautas. Hues of lime green, pink, and orange occupy the walls and window paintings in the dining room, and a patio in the front is separated from the street by sculpted wooden barriers, whether in the shape of cacti or a wide sun.
