Mexican

The Spanish-colonial vibe of this Oak Cliff restaurant and its mishmash of Latin, Mexican, and Southern flavors all but mirrors the Mexican city for which it was named. Above and beyond other Tex Mex joints, Veracruz Cafe offers dishes straight from the city's traditions, like the chicken breast covered in tomato-based mushroom wine sauce, thought to bring good luck and a healthy stomach. The can't-miss portion, however, is the Vera-Tex section, which answers the question, "what would a cookout co-hosted by a Mayan and a Texan look like?"
