Every Friday at The Spot on Sunset, diners flock to this neighborhood eatery for the weekly fish fry. Crispy batter covers tender fish filets and french fries fill the air with salty aromas. If you're keen on the fish fry but want a healthier option, the waiters at The Spot are eager to please. Customers praise their willingness to swap out the fries with fresh fruit including watermelon, pineapple, and cantaloupe. Once you've gotten hooked on the fish, come back any day of the week for a selection of cheeseburgers, salad, and local beers.
West-Mex is a cooking style and an approach to service at Taco John’s. The menu is stacked with bold-flavored twists on Tex-Mex standards and Taco John's staff is committed to service and community. Greenhorn customers are howdied in by fresh corn chips bathed in nacho cheese ($1.69) while the crispy taco ($1.19) sets a familiar tone with its simple layers of cheese, lettuce, seasoned beef, and déjà vu proclivity. Insulated in cheese and a soft tortilla, the stuffed grilled-beef taco ($2.59) transfers its heat to bellies while the golden beauty of potato olés nestles highly classified seasonings throughout elegant nugget rounds (small $1.69, large $2.29). Taco John’s meals are made fresh to order, like instant strawberry patches and mom’s apple pie.
Homemade guacamole and fresh cornbread spread with guava sauce balance Antigua Real's Latin culinary dishes, whose rich spice blends have won over palates by showcasing global flavors. Cuts of meat pick up campfire flavors and learn cowboy songs on the grill, and absorb chipotle, tomatillo, and tamarind from marinades and gravies. Entrees smothered in two thick moles (chocolate and almond) ensure those dining in get a taste of Mexican tradition, whereas seafood dishes accompanied by plantain recall the country's oft-overlooked proximity to the Caribbean. If you are not admiring collections of Central American art decorating the walls and fireplace of the entry, you can relax in Antigua Real's inviting lounge, where a diverse collection of tequilas, signature margaritas, mojitos, and beer inspire sun-soaked relaxation.
Though the vibrant crimson walls and the flat screens in the bar area fight for it, it's the rich red and green enchilada sauces at Salsa Cafe and Cantina's that steal diners' attention. The sense parade continues into the more subdued dining room, where freshly made guacamole with a secret blend of seasonings builds excitement for the meal ahead. The menu features traditional favorites, such as the slow-cooked and seasoned Mexican-style carnitas, but it also weaves creative Latin flavors into dishes such as the Venezuelan hot dog with cabbage and crushed potato chips, and embellishes American tastes with a trio of burgers. Meal encores take the form of red velvet cake, cinnamon crispies, and Chocolate Rage cake, the only known cure for Hulk rampages. Such innovative fare has not gone unnoticed in the community—Carol Deptola from the Journal Sentinel raves about the dishes in her three-star review.
Beneath the glow of warm lights, Casa Tequila delights taste buds with the vivacious flavors of authentic Mexican dishes. Chefs draw on fresh ingredients and produce exclusively, ensuring that every dish is free of packaged sauces and Lincoln Logs. Sauciers prepare guacamole before tables, and the restaurant's many flat screen TVs fill the space between bites with UW Badger and Green Bay Packer games. A full bar, replete with imported beer, margaritas, and daily specials, keeps spirits merry and coasters employed.
