Fodor's Expert Review Curra's Grill
If you're looking for authentic Mexican food at an affordable price (read: cheaper than Fonda San Miguel), then head to Curra's. Both locations, south and northwest, are casual, with no frills interiors. The cochinita pibil (marinated slow-roasted pork) is as moist, tender, and flavorful as it ought to be; the shrimp and fajitas are a cut above most local establishments. Outstanding brunch entrées are served all day and the enchiladas menu doesn’t disappoint. Try the enchiladas con chile Colorado, filled with melted Monterey Jack cheese and braised pork tip, marinated in guajillo and chipotle sauces. Portions are hearty and the house avocado margarita has a significant fan base.
