The drink menu at ATX Cocina has an almost uncountable number of tequilas and mezcals, yet somehow the food is still the main draw. The crudos are great, like one with hamachi and papaya, but they’re small so get a few and then round them out with some of the bigger plates like carne asada or chili-roasted chicken with white mole. Those should help make sure no one regrets signing up to foster iguanas after trying one too many tequilas.
