Garibaldi Mexican Bistro

Critics' Pick

Details

  • Vegetarian Friendly
  • Lunch, Dinner
The original Garibaldi Mexican Bistro shares a building with a Conoco service station; the little eatery is wedged between the gas station's convenience store and automated car wash. The second location, in the Golden Triangle, opened in July and includes a full bar. Of course, we wouldn't send you to a taqueria if it wasn't top-notch, and the food is the main attraction at both. Daily specials — lamb barbacoa, quesadillas with huitlacoche and squash blossoms — are worth investigating, or sample the unique queka, which comes in somewhere between an oversized taco and a corn-tortilla quesadilla. Other hard-to-find regional dishes include pambazos (smothered tortas), nopales rellenos (stuffed cactus leaves), Oaxacan-style tlayudas, and mixiote (slow-cooked pork or chicken). Fill ’er up!
