The Southwest grill wood and stone décor gives this place a rustic, lodge-like feel, while the bar with TVs constantly blaring makes it feel like a sports bar. The second-floor location, especially the outdoor seating area, features a great view of the Galleria area, perfect for enjoying the cafe's famous margaritas. On the menu: innovative Mexican, Native American and Tex-Mex food, including spinach and portabella quesadilla and banana burrito. They also serve poblano chicken chowder soup, burgers, sandwiches, blackened chicken and avocado salad and pasta.
