Restaurants, Mexican Lake View

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

How does a seemingly typical Mexican restaurant survive Lakeview’s changing landscape for more than 25 years? By being consistent with the simple stuff and throwing in a few specials every now and then. The regular appetizer menu is Anglo-ized and boring, so ditch that and go for the flaky beef empanadas from the specials list. Stick to that list for the delicious pomegranate margarita (made with real lime, not a mix) and the chicken enchiladas in smoky red mole. If there’s room, finish with the perfectly rich flan.
