Downtown Decatur's Casa Balam (from the co-owner of El Valle and Oaxaca) is a roomy, casually sophisticated hangout, perfect for families and groups. The move here is to huddle in the huge booths with your crew and order the family-style platters of tender chicken, duck, or birria, which come with fixings, sauces, and housemade tortillas. But start with the creamy guacamole with onions and jalapeños. The juicy 10-ounce wagyu is shareable but so good you probably won’t want to. And if sharing isn't your thing, you’ll find plenty of tacos and empanadas, including the tasty tacos de pescado asado with flounder and roasted pineapple. There are also a lot of margaritas options, though we like the Bee Word made with coconut milk and slightly sweet bee pollen.
