Buen Tiempo Mexican Restaurant


This Mexican restaurant, a favorite among locals, features an admirable range of Southwestern dishes, including posole, carne asada, and deep-fried jalapeƱos, along with the usual burrito/taco/tostada offerings. But the margaritas are the real house specialty. Varieties such as "Margarita Perfecta" and "Margarita Ultima" are served frozen or on the rocks in glasses with thickly salted rims. The staff will happily mix up a nonalcoholic version on request. The entertainment here is cheap but amusing: give a waitress a dollar and watch her fold it, stick a thumbtack through it, tuck a quarter inside for heft, and heave it at the ceiling. The quarter falls back out, while the dollar sticks to the ceiling alongside a few hundred fluttering green companions. Once a year the money is harvested and donated to a local children's charity. The restaurant is open during the summer from 11:30 AM to 10 PM, and in the winter 5:30 PM to 10 PM.
