Fish tacos and buffalo nachos seamlessly combine the two culinary traditions. Some kid-friendly dishes, alongside fresh salads and desserts, round out the menu, turning it into a satisfying read for those who want to whet their appetite or add another entry to their summer reading list.

Inside a cheerful restaurant decorated with yellow walls and streamers, culinary wunderkinds dish up traditional Mexican–style enchiladas, burritos, and fajitas. Green sauce, sour cream, and salsa drizzles over three types of enchiladas, and eight different burritos encase protein-packed mouthfuls of chicken, grilled steak, pork tips, and beans. Traditional desserts such as churros and fried ice cream celebrate the marriage of crispiness and sweetness, much like a deep-fried love letter. Barkeeps also pour imported beers, blend monster margaritas, and expound on the virtues, vices, and variances of more than a dozen tequilas stashed in their well-equipped watering hole.
