Fodor's Expert Review Perico's

$$$ El Centro Mexican
The Mexican menu here (tacos, seafood, fajitas, etc.) is passable, but the real reason to come is the nonstop party. Bar stools are topped with saddles, and waiters dressed as revolutionaries serve flaming drinks and desserts while mariachi and marimba bands play (loudly). Every so often everyone jumps up to join the conga line; your reward for galloping through the restaurant and nearby streets is a free shot of tequila. With 300 seats, this place can sometimes feel a bit empty. For a photo op, stop in the lobby, where you can try on traditional Mexican clothing and pose with props like sombreros and ponchos. It is a tourist trap, but fun, albeit dated.
