Head a few miles north of town for impossibly fresh guacamole that's made at your table.. The Scene For the best atmosphere, opt for a table outside. Open in the warm months, the patio resembles a mini-plaza, with a fountain, festive lanterns and an outdoor bar. Inside, the cavernous dining room and bar area are accented by high beamed-ceilings, colorful artwork and tile floors, which can get loud. Inside or out, service is prompt and professional.
The Food Average standards are overshadowed by a few stars including made-at-your-table guacamole that's worth the trip alone. Start with the guac and enjoy the show as avocado, garlic, green chilis, tomatoes, onion, cilantro and salt are skillfully mixed together on a roll-away cart. Served in a volcanic rock mortar, the huge portion is simply perfect. While entrees like too-dry pork tamales are on the bland side, others are wonderfully rich, including tender snow crab corn enchiladas topped by tomatillo sauce, sour cream and avocado slices.
