The main room of this sprawling rough-and-ready roadhouse—with wooden tables and bright Mexican tiles (and a blazing fireplace in winter)—is bustling. Drinkers and diners chat over expertly made margaritas and tasty starters like queso fundido, a dense, rich mass of molten cheese with crispy chips or warm tortillas. A charred salmon and tortilla stack is topped with a sweet-corn-and-mango salsa and spicy grilled shrimp. Baja tacos are stuffed with crisp fried fish and crunchy cabbage, and served with grilled corn slathered in chili mayo. Temper the spice with a cooling sliver of tart key lime pie. In summer, the big front yard—and an ice-cold cerveza—will call your name.
