Señor Pique 14424 Manchester Road, Manchester; 636-394-3455. The strip-mall sprawl of suburban Manchester might not be where you'd expect to find some of the best Mexican food in St. Louis, but Señor Pique makes a convincing claim to the crown. The menu features numerous traditional dishes — simple tacos as flavorful as any from a Cherokee Street taqueria, enchiladas in bittersweet, peppery mole sauce, cochinita pibil (pork tenderloin served wrapped in banana leaves) -- each marked with an M to denote its "authentic Mexican" nature. Those seeking gringo-friendly fare can choose among nachos, fajitas and burritos. And everyone is likely to enjoy a round (or three) of margaritas.

Hours: 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Sat., 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Sun.
