Taco Fuego

This mostly counter-service Lakeview spot offers Mexican favorites with a focus on the fiery. Ultra-hot habaneros make their way into everything from a quesadilla to one of the eight homemade salsas (other salsa selections include peanut, mango and, for the less adventurous, mild). Need some relief? There's plenty of soda on hand, including Mexican Coke. The restaurant also offers some American standards, all served with a Taco Fuego twist--burgers, for example, come topped with guacamole. The restaurant caters to the late-night crowd on the weekends, and if you stop by after midnight for your burrito fix, you won't wake up hungry: The Monster burrito is more than a foot long.
