The cantina's colorful emblem displays its namesake, "three hombres," who all sport different facial hair but seem to share a single, spacious sombrero. This same blending of whimsy and tradition inspires Cantina Los Tres Hombres's signature margaritas and expansive menu of authentic Mexican dishes.

Natural light plunges through large picture windows, as tables populate with sizzling fajitas, massive burritos, and hearty combination platters overflowing with mesquite-grilled steak or chicken, fresh seafood, and crispy pork carnitas. Chefs add zip to their culinary creations with a variety of specialty sauces ranging from the smoky chipotle chili adobo to the rich and herbaceous butter, white-wine, and fresh-cilantro sauce. Salt-rimmed margaritas complement south-of-the-border morsels, and live acoustic tunes on Tuesday through Friday complement south-of-the-ankle foot twitches.

The scene is a classic American diner: uniformed waitresses walk past rows of booths, pausing to refill coffee mugs and set down towering stacks of pancakes. Large, sunlit booths provide parents and kids with a venue to converse or sign a treaty that finally ends bitter remote-control battles. Behind the service window, cooks bustle about the kitchen, whipping up generous portions of biscuits and gravy, three-egg omelets, and Mexican-inspired specialties—including chilaquiles, eggs with chorizo, and giant breakfast burritos. Come lunchtime, kitchen staffers turn their attention toward hearty burgers, hot specialty sandwiches, and chicken-fried steaks.

The bicultural chefs at Angelica's celebrate two culinary traditions, sautéing and grilling a menu of both Italian and Mexican savories made from scratch. Culinary artisans craft gnocci alla gorgonzola ($11.99) using the same techniques used to construct the Roman Coliseum, rolling potato dumplings by hand, topping them with a chicken breast, and dousing everything in gorgonzola-cream sauce. The linguini alli scampi presents prawns on a bed of noodles accented by an aromatic blend of basil, garlic, chilies, and olive oil ($13.99). Meanwhile, the conteletta di manzo ($16.99) quells carnivorous cravings with a juicy one-pound rib-eye steak adorned with lemon-parsley sauce and accompanied by a baby arugula salad softly cooing in its bassinet. Mexican favorites also dot the menu, with offerings such as carne asada topped with mexican salsa, and a regular burrito ($7.99) stuffed with generous portions of either chicken or pork as well as rice, beans, tomatoes, and cheese ($11.99).

The cuisine forgers at Black Rock proffer a menu of imaginative gourmet pizza, delectable sandwiches, and pasta. Enliven weary taste buds with an appetizer, such as the rattlesteaks—a mélange of buttermilk-marinated sirloin steak, chipotle sauce, and ranch dressing ($5.99). Entree options include 30 signature pizza varieties that range from the cowboy poetry, a fusion of smoked tri-tip, crumbled bacon, and mushrooms under an asiago cheese roof ($18.49 for a large), to the brush fire pizza, a hand-tossed wonder engineered with house-made turkey sausage, peppers, smoked onions, and habanero cheese ($18.49). Leaving no stomach unfilled, Black Rock also offers kid-friendly fare including personal pizzas ($4.49 each) and orders of crispy chicken nuggets ($4.49).

Jolt-N-Java's baristas brew locally roasted coffee beverages and slice up lunch and breakfast sandwiches within the vibrant orange walls of a cozy cafe. Customers can sip on signature caffeinated mochas, flavored lattes, and teas to prep themselves for a day of work or an all-night knitting marathon. Pair a bagel and cream cheese with a large coffee ($4.50), or wed a breakfast sandwich with bacon, ham, or sausage with a medium chai-tea latte ($7.06). A medium latte can unite with a breakfast burrito—a large flour tortilla coddling scrambled eggs and bacon beneath a shower of salsa or the sinus-clearing El Patio hot sauce ($7.57). Guests can order through the drive-through window for speedier satiation or spend an afternoon perched on couch cushions and stools, rifling through or circling every dangling modifier in the shop's selection of books and magazines or shopping online via complimentary WiFi.

Funtime Theater’s Dinner Murder Mysteries transforms audience members into amateur detectives, tasking them with solving an interactive theatrical mystery while chowing down on café eats. Actors mingle among theatergoers throughout the show, chatting them up during an abbreviated cocktail hour (6:30 p.m.–7 p.m.) and comfort-fare-filled dinner from Hog Wild Café. The first two fatalities occur once meals are served, leaving patrons, a lone detective, and a wisecracking Great Dane puppy to unravel the thicket of green-chili-stained clues. A prize is awarded to the participant who deduces the solution of the mystery. Like department-store windows and freestyle-rapping telegrams, Funtime Theater’s performances may take on a holiday theme: the October 8 rendition will transport guests to a portentous Halloween party, the November 12 showing may feature Turkey Day-themed intrigue, and the December 10 edition plans to incorporate motifs and characters plucked from Charles Dickens’ Christmas tales. Though sinister wheelings and dealings abound throughout the show, the tone of Funtime Theater’s criminal cavalcades is lighthearted and intended for audiences of all ages.
