Rare is the Friday afternoon we don't battle the traffic south to settle in around the outdoor tables at this Mexican eatery. Polvo's whips up a mean margarita and maintains a self-service salsa bar with several homemade selections, among them a smoky chile concoction we just can't get enough of. Then there's the cilantro laden taco al pastor that surpasses all others in town, the heaping bowl of ceviche, and the restaurant's extensive list of regional Mexican specialties served without pretension. We can hardly wait till Friday!
