Specializing in grilled meats, this Mexican restaurant is bright, clean and occasionally loud. While all the meats can be ordered family-style by the pound, the place specializes in the parrillada, or mixed grill. The "grande" (for two) comes with chicken breast, beef fajitas, a sausage link, two pork ribs and four shrimp, along with a heap of caramelized onions and two huge portions of smoky charro beans and rice. Quite a bargain at $21.95. The salsas -- both the garlicky red and the piquant tomatillo -- are outstanding. And the outdoor patio surrounding the building is perfect for alfresco dining, especially late at night.
