Led by the Hernandez family—whose roots in Des Moines span more than 43 years—the culinary savants at Raul’s transform fresh ingredients into a full menu of classic Mexican eats. Five fillings round out the tacos, which, depending on one’s appetite or multiple stomachs, can be served in batches of two ($8.95) or three ($11.95). The aptly named El Combination Popular bands together favorites, including a flour taco, a corn enchilada, and a corn-nacho pizza ($10.25). For the huevos ranchero, chefs drape two eggs fried over-easy in a hot ranchero sauce and send them out to tables alongside warm tortillas, beef, beans, and rice ($8.95). Meanwhile, eight different beers sit on tap, and patrons can toast to their forefathers without pouring beer on a family tree by sipping Raul's Original Grandpa margarita, which brings together Cuervo Gold, triple sec, and Raul's own lime juice served on the rocks ($6.75). Savory aromas float toward vaulted ceilings inside Raul's casual dining room, which serves as a backdrop for dinner conversations with dark wood booths, striped serapes, an array of fedoras, and a stone fireplace.
