It's always happy hour when you consult your Spirit Guide. Your best friend for bar-hopping lets you in on the drink and food specials, tells you where the music is (and isn't) and helps you find the perfect spot. A great night out starts with Spirit Guide.
Although “Salsa” is part of its name, the menu at Rio Grande Tacos y Salsas doesn’t once mention that word. Yet the salsa flows, starting with your welcome basket of chips and continuing throughout your meal with as many refills you ask for. The small restaurant, situated in a grocery mercado parking lot where Goff and Arenal meet Isleta, serves Mexican delicacies like trays of clean, bacony tripitas de leche and fajita-like platters of alambre. To drink, there are fresh-squeezed juices of every stripe, housemade horchata and hot champurrado. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
