This downtown restaurant serves up coastal Mexican cuisine with a side of live Norteño music. The stars of the show are the aguachiles, ceviches, and hearty seafood molcajetes, but if you’re craving something meatier, the menudo soup and taqueria classics hold their own. Grab a few friends for dinner, order up some double super chavelas, and get the party started inside the dining room or out on the oversized tented patio.
