This quaint, family-owned Mexican spot in Avondale is about as authentic as it gets. "Most of our customers are referrals," says Joel Iniquez, whose parents, Elisa and Roman, have been the owners and chefs since 1991. "We are always busy." The menu's traditional, but not boring. Carnivores can't say no to the Parilla al Patron, a two-person portion of short ribs, steak, chicken, and chorizo served on a tabletop grill that continues to sizzle while you eat. Service can be a bit slow, but no worries: Sip a made-to-order cazuela while you wait. This freshly squeezed citrus-and-tequila cocktail even comes in its own clay bowl.
