This casual Mexican steakhouse and sports cantina features tried-and-true favorites like carne asada along with new twists on traditional fare, such as an updated version of a house-made queso dip. In the dining room, look for nachos con carne with skirt steak, enchilada plates and seafood specials, along with wines, Mexican and domestic beer and signature Mexican cocktails. For a more low-key evening, grab a drink and dessert in the cantina -- a house favorite is a breaded banana with spicy Kahlua sauce served with a side of vanilla ice cream. The centerpiece of this vibrantly colored spot is an enormous bar (the space was formerly Coyote Ugly, if that paints a better picture) and owners say they'll host tequila tastings in the private space on the second floor.
