Gish Bac is open seven days a week, but the focus should very much be on the weekends. Why? Because that’s when their barbacoa (lamb and goat BBQ) fires up, and it’s life-changing.

The bright spot in Mid City is also very easy to find, with plentiful parking, and there’s a salsa bar you’re definitely getting involved with.
