A bright, vibrantly colored restaurant with closely spaced tables, piñatas, and ceiling fans wafting overhead, Bumble Bee's (the nickname of the ebullient owner, Bob) delights locals with its super-fresh Cal Mex–style food. If you like fish tacos, the mahimahi ones with creamy, nondairy slaw are outstanding; try them with a side of salad instead of beans and rice. Mammoth burritos with a wide range of fillings (including asparagus—yum!), roasted chicken with cilantro-lime
rice, char-grilled trout platters, and plenty of vegetarian options keep folks pouring through the doors. You order at the counter, grab some chips and a variety of freshly made salsas from the bar, and wait for your number to come up. Beer, wine, and Mexican soft drinks are served. Try a homemade Mexican chocolate brownie for dessert. There's another location on Cerrillos Road.
