Available dine-in or curbside, there’s a witty balance of American standards and pure border corazón here. While classics abound, there are some detours that tip the sombrero to Laredo’s binational cultural heritage. So don’t be surprised by tenderloin medallions bracketed with huitlacoche or a Wagyu patty melt stacked high with Hatch peppers, sweet onions, Swiss cheese, mushrooms, and a toothsome chipotle pepper aioli . . . on Texas Toast, naturally. Order this to go: Try the double bone-in pork chop, topped with a velvety guajillo honey glaze and surrounded with pillow-like gnocchi. And spoil yourself with a side of charred brussels sprouts. Yes, really. You will never dis them again. Pro tip: When in doubt, the pizza with luxurious house-smoked salmon is our go-to panacea. Too much guilt? Order with a cauliflower crust.
