Just about everything at Moe’s will set off your Cal-Mex detector. Hunker down happily with the well-marinated carne asada in a crisp-crusted torta. Burritos come with generous extras, in a tortilla so tender that it casts the tiniest shadow of a doubt on the kitchen’s lard-free claim. Friendly service and an easy crowd make it tempting to stay for a cup of cinnamony hot chocolate and a dessert empanada—the perfectly fried dough dusted with cinnamon sugar and packed with sweet rice pudding is worth a trip all on its own.
