Fodor's Review

Be prepared for Tex-Mex craziness at this beloved local eatery, in business since 1990. The bright Wild West kitsch that festoons the walls serves as a prelude for some of the wild plates that emerge from chef-owner Joe Esparza's kitchen. Look for such creations as smoked pork loins, lamb tacos, and wild boar enchiladas. Esparza's is renowned for its house-smoked meats.
