    Pueblo Nuevo
    A small gem of a restaurant in a Hazelwood strip mall, Pueblo Nuevo offers authentic Mexican cuisine: uncommon dishes such as the goat stew birria as well as enchiladas and other reliable favorites. Chilaquiles, a casserole of tortilla chips, cheese and chicken, is very good; order it with the salsa verde for a devilishly hot meal. The restaurant's two salsas are popular enough to be bottled and sold. It's understandable -- the darker, thicker version is tart, fiery and addictive.
    Pueblo Solis
    Freshly mixed margaritas, adventuresome entrées and a friendly setting: What more do you want from a Mexican meal? Owner Al Solis' mother's mole recipe makes ample use of ground squash seeds, and its mellow earthiness is a perfect foil for steak, chicken or shrimp. Salmon is grilled and served with a corn salsa; swordfish comes topped with a salsa of capers, green olives, tomatoes, cilantro and olive oil. For traditionalists, there's the fajita/tamale/taco gamut and great guacamole to boot. If there's room for dessert, mango cheesecake is a must.
