Powered by a wood-burning oven and grill, the restaurant serves first-rate beef and chicken fajitas, carnitas, and a juicy, crispy-skinned pollo asado. Both cheese and beef enchiladas are appropriately gooey-in-a-good-way, and the ability to add brisket from The Pit Room really perks up the queso.

Add in a selection of well-executed, classic cocktails, most of which are reasonably priced between $8 and $10, to get a restaurant that's already become a valuable addition to Montrose.
