Mariano’s Hacienda

Owned by Mariano Martinez, the man who invented the frozen margarita machine in 1971, this warhorse packs in a loyal crowd for “vintage Tex Mex” and more. Order this to go: The “Spanish Style Tacos” channel enchiladas suizas, but they’re far more satisfying: flanked by Mexican rice and grilled vegetables, the open-faced tortillas hold big chunks of tender chicken breast bathed in a tangy sour cream sauce with green chile notes; strips of roasted jalapeño lend zing. Cheese enchiladas topped with “my Dad’s State Fair Texas Chili” do Tex Mex proud. Mesquite-grilled steak fajitas for one could serve two. Pro tip: Three sibling restaurants—named La Hacienda Ranch—offer mostly the same menu, with the addition of grilled steaks.
