Los Patios emerged victorious from the San Clemente Salsa Challenge not just once, but three times, in 2006, 2007, and 2012. Take a quick glance at the eatery's menu, however, and it's clear that its cooks have mastered far more than just salsa. From chicken tostadas and pastor tacos to veggie fajitas severed on sizzling plates, all the classics of Mexican cuisine are accounted for, all made without additives such as lard, MSG, or magic beans. The culinary team's creative seafood dishes, meanwhile, are anything but standard, with options such as lobster-stuffed enchiladas and shrimp sautéed in a tequila-spiked garlic butter sauce. Aguas frescas, sangria, and Mexican beer complement the south-of-the-border feasts, which can unfold in a colorful dining room adorned with sarapes (traditional Mexican shawls) or outside on the dog-friendly patio.
