People may dance and sing around the tables in this Southwest-side Mexican party zone, but nobody's goofing off in the kitchen. Try Fajita Flats' better-than-average beef and chicken fajitas and moist, tangy, mesquite-grilled orange roughy, all served sizzling atop sweet grilled onions. Other delights are thick, vibrantly seasoned pork chops, peppery camarones diablos (shrimp girded with bacon) and steamed broccoli drenched with, of all things, chili con queso. Beware the birthday sombrero.
