We jumped like happy monkeys when Alvarado’s opened in the former Galvan’s spot, for we had sorely missed our quiet hideaway. Putting its own spin on Mexican fare, Alvarado’s serves up burritos stuffed with your choice of carne guisada, ground beef, barbacoa, chicken, or pork; we ordered ours “smothered” (with your pick of queso, red, or green sauce). Don’t miss the Frito Bandito: carne picado, beans, and queso on a bed of corn chips. The staff is super welcoming and the tortillas are made in house. (10/13)
