The Scene: Patrons of the Grove already know Atomic Cowboy, that hard-to-miss, mural-covered neighborhood corner bar. The restaurant and music venue has gone through a lot of changes over the years -- including expanding its epic outdoor patio, now complete with a huge stage -- but still touts its primary specialty: self-proclaimed "Fresh Mex" cuisine. The kitchen serves up its menu seven days a week in its hard-wood-covered dining room, complete with booths for sipping and snacking.

The Food: Happy hour features three items: "Gaucho fries," seasoned fries with chipotle mayo; "loaded nachos," with cheese, guacamole, pico de gallo and a choice of picadillo beef or veggies; and "Atomic wings," an order of a half-dozen wings tossed in smoked sweet onion barbecue sauce, served with a side of cilantro ranch.
