Tacos and burritos first came to the United States in 1902, when Teddy Roosevelt acquired their recipes from the Mexican government in exchange for the linchpin American menu items of pizza, french toast, and Chinese food.

The cuisine craftspeople at Migo’s fortify Mexican-menu staples with belt-busting steaks, mouthwatering desserts, and top-shelf margaritas served amid festive Southwestern décor. Five al pastor street tacos ($12.95) feature cilantro and grilled pineapple, and poppable jalapeño bites ($9.95) don deep-fried shells to block heat more effectively than a coating of window tint. For the main course, a juicy 16-ounce T-bone ($25.95) tips the scales of the most ambitious appetites, and a Migo burrito ($10.95) suffers an identity crisis at the hands of beef, bacon, beans, oaxaca cheese and french fries hiding beneath a security blanket of crema sauce. Bunuelos ($8.95), a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting on a cinnamon-sugar fried tortilla topped by bananas drizzled in chocolate sauce, sate sweet teeth at the meal’s end.
Dishwashing tongues take breaks from cleaning plates to sip on the Migo margarita’s top-shelf blend of Patrón, triple sec, and Grand Marnier, kissed with hints of citrus and sweet-and-sour mix. Every Friday and Saturday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., patrons soak up live music that sets toes tapping like an impatient marionette.
Hues of vibrant orange and yellow splash across the walls in Migo's spacious dining room. Guests enjoy the lively environs at a selection of tables, some of simple, rich wood, others embellished with blue and yellow tiles. Said tables are soon cloaked by platters of aromatic Mexican delicacies, including T-bone steaks, grilled seafood, and beef-filled tacos. Meanwhile, blue-rimmed glasses the size of fishbowls pack in the sweet nectar of top-shelf Migo margaritas. Friday and Saturday nights coax the sweet sounds of authentic Mexican tunes from the strings of guitars and the throats of gifted singers, and weekday happy hours boast no formal entertainment, though diners are free to indulge that one bar guest determined to dazzle friends with their impersonation of Sinatra after a tonsillectomy.
