Mad Mex

What is ‘Funky Fresh Cal-Mex’?

Pull up a stool. We just mixed up margaritas with good tequila and fresh squeezed lime juice. Steaks and chicken are on the grill, and we grabbed some tomatoes and jalapeños for big bowls of salsa and guacamole. The tortillas are warm and the beer is cold. Get a big plate of everything and chill out. It’s a summertime, wear your shorts, drink a beer, sweat a little, chill with friends, have a margarita, forget the clock, eat a burrito party. Just a good time. Thanks for coming in.
Funky   We spin an American food mashup of Mexican, Southeast Asian, and Spanish. We aren’t scared to put fun things together if they taste good.
Fresh   Sure, there are easier ways to do it. But why would we put frozen food out for our favorite friends? We make just about everything from scratch daily. We believe that the closer we are to the Earth, to picking the vegetables from the field, the better the food.
Cal   Drawing on West Coast food: healthy, fun, local, experimental. No lard, simple marinades of citrus and spices. And microbrews. The trend that awakened on the West Coast and ignited our passions for good beer made here.
Mex   Because we love Mexican food. Big flavors, big plates, fire and sunshine, beer and tequila to wash it down. Great flavors. Warm tortillas and big piles of rice and beans. Guacamole!!!!!! Avocados rule Mexico and they rule us. And Mexico is home to tequila, our favorite hooch. Viva la Margarita!

New Fall cocktails

We've got two new and one revival on the most recent cocktail list:

  • Spicy Jalapeño Margarita: Can a chilled cocktail make you sweat? Worth a try to find out. Avion Blanco, thinly sliced fresh jalapeño peppers, Combier and fresh citrus juices.
  • Madhattan: Just when you thought we couldn't make a drink without tequila in it! Knob Creek straight bourbon whiskey, cinammon-infused apple cider, sweet vermouth and bitters.
  • La Chihuahua: The peppy pink puppy is back! Fresh squeezed Ruby Red grapefruit juice with El Mayor Blanco tequila, lime and Combier.
