Best Mexican Restaurant

Fiesta Mexicana

They specialize in Mexican street food here, so there's nothing fancy: flautas, tortas, enchiladas, and, best of all, pambazos, a fried roll coated in guajillo sauce, then stuffed with sausage, potato, cheese, and more. Just about everything is fresh--definitely get the handmade guacamole--and absolutely everything is scrumptious.
