Chimichanga's Mexican Restaurant

Drive way south on Grand and you'll find a Mexican restaurant where a great vibe foreshadows a great meal. Nestled in the sleepy Carondelet neighborhood, Chimichanga's sticks out like the best kind of sore thumb. You can take a seat on the always-packed patio, festooned with bright umbrellas and white Christmas lights, or settle into a booth in the primary-color dining room. The no-frills food is delicious, particularly when it involves smoky house-made salsa or fork-tender grilled pork. Tasty margaritas come in three sizes, with small meaning "not quite enough," medium meaning "perfect" and large meaning "this thing oughta come with a diving board."
