Generations have loaded up on chips and salsa at this family-owned chain. Its classic Mexican-American focus still makes a plate of tacos and refried beans the perfect weeknight meal — especially because the food arrives so quickly, it almost seems as if they plucked the order out of your brain to get it started while you were parking your car. A round of margaritas for the grown-ups and some fried ice cream for the kids gives you an excuse to linger a few minutes longer before heading home.
