The original Cyclone Anaya's was an incredibly popular Tex-Mex joint owned by a former professional wrestler. The new locations are upscale eateries run by his heirs. Potent margaritas and homemade Tex-Mex are the best bets, but the queso with seasoned taco meat should not be missed. Saturdays and Sundays diners can select brunch menu options until 3:00 p.m. that include chilaquiles or huevos rancheros, or the breakfast-style quesadillas with scrambled eggs and Applewood bacon, as well as a house-style mimosa with one cent refills.
