Kids adore this flamboyant piñata of a place and you'll love that no one cares if your niños get noisy. Big-portioned classics like enchiladas and fajitas score high, as do the chile rellenos (two poblano peppers packed with juicy ground beef or cheese, served with lettuce, guacamole, rice and refried beans); it's easy to share and heavy on the queso. There is a children's menu offering hamburgers and chicken fingers, but the super-fresh guacamole prepared tableside ($13) will have even the pickiest eaters diving in for more.
