Meal maestros at El Minuto Cafe layer tortillas, seasoned meats, green chilies, and cheeses to forge authentic mexican burritos, enchiladas, and combination plates for lunch, dinner, or catered affairs. Spice-infused morsels of carne asada, chorizo, and chile con carne bust the seams of burritos and chimichangas, and vegetarian alternatives showcase hearty mounds of beans, cheese, or guacamole. Tacos and enchiladas accompany sides of rice and beans, and lone-wolf tostadas arrive à la carte. In business since 1939, the downtown eatery’s dining room sports neutral tones accented by colorful paintings and twinkling chandeliers, and an outdoor patio flecked by bright lanterns creates a joyful atmosphere paralleled only by field trips to the laughing-gas factory.
