People sit at booths inside Teotihuacan Mexican Cafe. A large mural fills a wall, neon led lighting shines over the bar and sports plays on a tv.

Teotihuacan is an institution. Greater Heights residents have been packing out the parking lot of this bright pink Tex-Mex restaurant for decades. Nearly every wall is covered with murals, beer posters, and neon signs. The chile con queso is a necessary accomplice to any order. It’s always the perfect, drippy consistency, perfect for dredging beef fajitas or flautas or tacos al carbon. Teo can host big parties, but you can also just squeeze into a booth with a friend for a quick Happy Hour or pancake breakfast. Service is quick, and so is the effect of their boozy house margaritas.
