La Casa Velez
Drawing inspiration from time-honored classics, La Casa Velez features a menu of hearty Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine accompanied by thirst-quenching beers and spirited margaritas. Familiar staples—including tamales topped with chile con carne and tacos filled with everything from brisket and pico de gallo to pork, pineapple, onions, and cilantro—appear alongside more innovative options, such as butterfly shrimp that the chefs stuff with cheese and jalapeños, wrap in bacon, and then fry until crispy. With its adobe-hued walls, stone fireplace, and bar lined with neon beer signs, La Casa Velez exudes a cozy and inviting vibe. On Wednesday evenings, the restaurant invites a guitarist to stop by and serenade the crowd with a combination of acoustic melodies and mixolydian scales.
