One of the best "authentic" Mexican restaurants in the city. Nothing fancy, but the food is incredible. I recommend the quesadillas with spicy pork, but anything on the menu will amaze. $10-15

This is a brewery, but some of the best food in the city is here. The duck nachos are really good, the burger has no equal, and the beer is the best in the city. Fantastic service, cool atmosphere. Try a sour! $15-25
