The three sisters and two brothers that run Tios Mexican Cafe and Cantina populates their menu with delectable, fresh Tex-Mex fare. Appetizers arrive swiftly to prevent napkins from being gnawed on; they include such options as a basket of breaded jalapeño poppers with ranch dipping sauce or a bowl of mouthwatering queso with warm tortilla chips. Cooks pull pork carnitas by hand, and stuff them along with cheddar and monterey jack cheeses and onion into enchiladas. Vegetarians feast on the spot’s popular 12-inch wet burrito, smothered in mild enchilada sauce and stuffed with fresh, lard-free refried beans, cheese, and fresh-chopped tomatoes and onions. One 35-ounce jumbo margarita—mixed with a choice of flavors such as peach, blackberry, and mango—quenches the thirst of two humans or one Cerberus, and a game room with pool tables keeps guests entertained before or after mealtime.
