On weekends, La Cruzada fills up with Homestead families eating reasonably priced tacos and enjoying big red bowls of pozole. But you’ll usually find a place to sit inside the restaurant’s dining room, which has more decorations hanging from the ceiling than a baby’s mobile. If that’s full, there’s a colorful back porch. The big menu has burritos, seafood, hot soups, and tortas. But we like the tacos here. Order the taquiza—it comes with five tacos, all topped with big slices of avocado and served with a side of sauteed onion and a chile toreado. And if the temperature drops below 70—or if you just don't mind eating a hot soup on a hot day—order the very good pozole.
