According to lore in restaurateur Alfonso Salazar's ancestral hometown of San Pedro, Mexico, women with particularly uncouth language—majaderas—were always the finest cooks with the most flavorful recipes. Today, in honor of the sassy women's unmatched culinary skills, the Salazar family crafts a colorful menu that unites traditional Mexican recipes with distinctive tastes of Texas. Spicy ceviche joins trios of tacos stuffed with chili-adobo-marinated chicken breast, tilapia, rib-eye steak, or brisket, and bowls of soup invite strips of tortilla to belly-flop in rich, flavorful broth. Beyond the main dining room, where a lacquered wooden-beam ceiling and colorful pendant lamps illuminate a honeycombed wall panel, a lounge thrums with live music and dancing on weekend nights and karaoke renditions of popular sea shanties on Thursdays.
