Hundreds of artifacts from Guadalajara, Mexico, lend festive charm to this casual restaurant, which has an expansive garden patio. Tamales and shellfish dishes are among the specialties—expect more traditional Mexican fare, rather than California-influenced creations. The tequila menu lists dozens of aged and reserve selections, served by the shot or folded into a margarita. There's live entertainment on weekends. Another location, Las Casuelas Terraza, does business
in downtown Palm Springs.
