Alamo Steakhouse & Saloon has western decor and focuses on providing top-notch American dishes. There are a lot of steak options, including The Distiller, a top sirloin marinated overnight. If you're not in the mood for a steak try the signature Alamo Burger that comes with Muenster cheese or the tasty Garlic Grilled Shrimp. Save room for dessert with options like Snicker's Pie, Rockslide Brownie, and Big Apple Pie.
For authentic Mexican food, look no further then Don Sol Mexican Grill. Their fresh guacamole with chips and margaritas are always a great start to a meal, and you'll need an appetizer since it may take you quite a while to pick from their impressive list of entrees. The menu is impressive with options like chicken chimichangas, carne asada, chili Colorado, seafood tacos, Burrito Don Sol, and so much more. Don't forget dessert with choices like Tres Leches Chocolate Cake and Mexican Flan.
Yes, this restaurant is called Burger King, but it's not the fast food chain you're probably thinking of. This locally owned restaurant claims to be the "original" Burger King and was involved in the famous 1968 United States trademark case. This family-friendly restaurant is known for thin burger patties with a crispy finish. For a treat, try the vanilla/chocolate twist ice cream cone with candy "eyeballs."
