Las Calaveras Mexican Restaurant's menu entices taste buds with authentic south-of-the-border eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Early-morning maws limber up with rancheros eggs ($6.99), which the kitchen crew can stuff in a burrito, place on a plate, or wedge into a locket for a keepsake. Specialties, such as chili relleno ($10.99) and steak in cactus sauce ($10.99), chaperone sidekicks of rice, beans, salsa, and handmade tortillas to the table, and seafood dishes, such as shrimp or scallops ($11.95), can be tempura-fried, grilled à la plancha, or dressed in tiny top hats. Guests can sample of bit of everything at the eatery's lunch buffet ($10.99) from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday–Friday, or they can take tongues on an appetite-boosting adventure by inhaling menudo, a traditional Mexican soup made with tripe, every Saturday and Sunday morning.
