El Gordo Restaurante's chefs plate a menu of traditional burritos, enchiladas, and shrimp washed down by a chilly wave of more than a dozen fruity margaritas. Patrons fire dance with the flaming cheese nibbler ($5.95) and then turn up the heat with hearty chorizo burritos ($6.50). Shrimp arrive tableside in a variety of styles—from ranchero to breaded—to team up with garlic or dried jalapeño sauce ($12.95). The smell of chicken or beef enchiladas smothered in mole ($10.25) and skirt steak resting atop rice and beans ($14.25) fills the air as diners knock back frosty mango or guava margaritas ($5.50). For extra spirited splendor, El Gordo Restaurante’s bar doles out more than a dozen distinct tequilas, plus Tecate beer and advice on how to teach a new dog old tricks, such as how to confuse a T. rex.
