Though Mexican cuisine is known for its fiery flavors, a different connotation arises during meals at Cielo Mexican Restaurant?soothing water. That's because the eatery is perched right beside Hidden Lake, so named for the thousands of years it spent hiding inside a glacier. Gorgeous lakefront views give way to an equally charming interior of dazzling pendant lamps and the occasional flat-screen TV, which can entertain patrons until their food arrives. The menu mostly sticks to Mexican favorites, from breakfast burritos chock full of eggs, beans, and potatoes to house-made tamales with your choice of shredded beef or green chile and cheese. Cielo's chefs also showcase their culinary creative with less orthodox dishes, such as platters of jumbo shrimp stuffed with melted cheese and wrapped in bacon.

The year was 1967, and Stella Cordova was working in a restaurant called Chubby's Burger Drive In. One day, the owner made approached her with a curious offer?would she like to buy the place? Stella said yes, and today she keeps locals well-fed by managing the eatery she once worked in. Since then, The Original Chubby's has changed locations, altered its name, and sprouted a second spot in the arts district?now in the hands of Stella's grandson Julian. This time, though, the menu's fare features a Mexican twist. Stella's own favorite is the green chile-topped Mexican burger served with a side of cheese fries, but dozens of burgers, tacos, and burritos fly across the counter at Chubby's until midnight.
