For 22 years, the cuisine conductors at El Saguarito have orchestrated a flavorful symphony of heart-healthy Mexican dishes. The chefs use no animal lard in any of the menu items, wielding canola oil as an affable alternative in starters such as the El Saguarito Style cheese crisp, a grilled tortilla topped with cheese, green chilies, onion, and tomato. Seafood-savvy palates can compare true or imaginary fishing triumphs over entrées such as the three fish tacos filled with savory Alaskan pollock, cabbage, tomato, and a bright splash of lime. A plate of barbacoa with tortillas—shredded beef simmered in pickling spices and green olives—tunes forks to sing at a piquant frequency. Meanwhile, lips transform into goofy grins over a pitcher of house margaritas made with Sauza tequila, ideal for toasting the memory of favorite piñatas.
