While supplying a wide range of the reasonably priced, hearty Mexican-restaurant fare that we expect in Texas, distinct Cal-Mex influences vary the menu.
This may be a bar providing Alamo Drafthouse moviegoers with a new foraging alternative, but Chef John Bullington's snacky menu includes interpretations of classic Mexican street food, such as N.Y. Strip alambras and a giant Sonoran hot dog. Brunch is exciting as well, what with tangy avocado tomatilla sauces, and poblanos in the chichimigas.
