Brushfire Tacos y Tapas
Though you can walk or drive up to the window for food at Brushfire Tacos y Tapas, this is no classic drive-thru restaurant. That's because Executive Chef John Simmons and Chef Gregg Piazzi have worked to create a menu that is both quick yet cultured, like a Formula One race through a museum. They specialize in Latin and Spanish cuisine, with half the menu dedicated to their house-marinated tacos and burritos and half dedicated to Spanish tapas.
The expert chefs roll together carne asada, al pastor pork with pineapple, and shrimp adobado style in flour tortillas to make both tacos or burritos. They can even swap out tortillas for a bed of greens to create taco bowl salads. But guests don't always have to choose between tacos and tapas. The kitchen also offers combos that pair a chosen Mexican dish with a soda, chips and salsa, and one tapa of choice. These come in varieties such as battered shrimp with a sweet and spicy sauce, or ham and cheese croquetas. Five styles of salsa add spice to dishes, from the mild version made with only a hint of jalapeno to the inferno salsa made with super-hot habaneros and a brimstone reduction.
