This charming café is probably going to be busy every morning we try to eat there but it’s totally worth the wait. Serving up a menu of homey breakfast favorites like waffles, eggs benedict, breakfast burritos, huevos and their gold hash plus more delicious options for lunch and dinner. We reccomend the portabello mushroom sandwich! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This rooftop bar offers a breezy patio, a menu of small plates and specialty cocktails for those looking to relax after a long day at work (the kind where you wear suits!). The food is hit or miss, but the house-created cocktails—like the spicy-yet-refreshing cucumber-jalapeño margarita—make it well worth a visit. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

Elvis is in the house—Chef Elvis Bencomo, that is. With co-owners Monica (Elvis’ wife) and Orlando (his brother), Pasión Latin Fusion serves up dishes found throughout Latin America with Elvis’ own creative flair. Monica runs the front of the house and her gracious, lively style makes you feel right at home. To eat, there are fish tacos crusted in banana, garnished with pickled onions, avocado and sauce. The succulent carnitas tacos and George’s pescado à la Veracruzana are spectacular. The “croque señorita” is Elvis’ version of a croque-madame—a seared pork chop, fried egg and Swiss cheese served over tacu tacu (Peruvian rice and beans, similar to Cuba's moros y cristianos) with a huacatay (Peruvian mint) cream sauce.

Brothers Lorenzo and Carlos Alvarez, along with father Rafael, whip up frozen Mexican style paletas and ice cream with natural ingredients like real fruit and organic cane sugar. You won’t find high fructose corn syrup here, but you will discover Grandma Alvarez’ horchata and limeade recipes, as well as exotic ice cream and paleta creations like guanabana, mimosa and, our favorite, avocado.

This brightly colored taco shop is always busy. Despite the constant stream of hard hats, auto mechanics and high-heeled office workers, Taquería Mexico somehow stays spotlessly clean. And the food is great! Their tortas come on big, hot rolls, stuffed with your choice of meats (try the asada or desebrada), lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise and avocado. The big, juicy burgers are fantastic, as are the burritos, the caldo de res and the soft corn tortilla tacos (of course). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

While the food is hit or miss here, you can always count on some space for quiet contemplation, whether you’re inside or at the drive-thru. The Mexican food is slightly more consistent. (Alibi Staff, October 10, 2012)

You can’t miss the pink, green and purple neon cross that adorns Helen’s Bakery, just north of Lomas. There you’ll find rows of Mexican pastries, cookies and rolls tucked away inside glass cases or cooling on a big metal rack up front. If you don’t speak Spanish, here’s how it all works: Walk up to the register, grab a pair of tongs and a cafeteria tray and load up on sweet treats. A little café serves savory Mexican snacks like tacos and chicharrones by the pound.

Mariscos and northern Mexican cuisine with a unique flair. Various ceviche-like dishes feature raw shrimp of unusually firm deliciousness. The epic Charola De Mariscos platter (fried, steamed and raw) must be seen to be believed. Don’t fill up on the chips.

I eat lunch here several times weekly - amazing food, huge menu, wide seafood selection. Winner of "Best Nachos" award. I've never had a bad meal here!

It’s in a location that has seen quite a few restaurants come and go over the years, but The Shop is making a real go of it. With an emphasis on high quality, locally sourced foods, the menu here covers breakfast (try the pancakes and the chilaquiles) and lunch (I suggest a cubano or chicken and waffles) with equal finesse and attention to detail.

Zacatecas is an upscale taco-and-tequila concept and the baby of Mark Kiffin, whose Santa Fe restaurant The Compound is renowned for its ingredients and artistry. His Pacific rock cod taco is perfectly browned on the outside, juicy on the inside and oozing with glorious fish grease. With the addition of coleslaw and habanero salsa, this is not the taco of anyone’s abuelita. Toast her health with a three-mescal sampler, which comes in terra cotta dishes. Often features live music. (Alibi Staff, May 3, 2012)
