Javier’s is big, loud, and there will be approximately seven birthday or anniversary dinners happening around you whenever you go. Start with chips and their salsa - that you’ll want to pour on top of everything you order - then go for one of the seafood dishes, like the red snapper mojo de ajo. And while you’ll probably stick to margaritas while you eat, make sure you end your meal with a Cafe Pierre, an after-dinner coffee cocktail that’s mixed and set on fire table-side, before you hit the cigar bar.

Rafa’s Cafe Mexicano

Rafa’s has been serving Tex-Mex food for 40 years, and is just as good for a starting point for a night as a boozy brunch the next morning.

Taqueria El Si Hay

Taqueria El Si Hay is a small stand out in Bishop Arts that’s worth the trek for the tacos they’ve been serving for decades.
