Feeling blue? Head for Molina’s where the friendly, carefree atmosphere is a potent antidote for anything negative in your life. If you’re already feeling good, this upscale cantina will take you to the next level. When the weather is nice, ask to dine on the patio, which combines comfy sofas with sturdy tables and bar chairs. We usually start with the “Original José’s Dip” (chili con queso with spicy ground beef) and then branch out from there to any one of a number of Tex-Mex classics. The food is good, but it’s the upbeat spirit of the place and its triumphant American dream legacy that keeps us coming back.

President George H. W. Bush was one of the first customers to the Southside Place Molina's when it opened in 2011. He has since visited it many times over.
