Cuisine:Mexican. Price: $$$. Location: .

Richly flavored, colorful Mexican fare from Top Chef Masters champion Rick Bayless is served at Frontera Grill, a popular midscale restaurant that’s been around since 1987, and to this day has a line trailing out the door. Menu classics include a killer guacamole, smoked chicken taquitos, quesedillas, and a chocolate pecan pie with Kahlua whipped cream, all of which should be enjoyed with a few rounds of Frontera’s famous margaritas.
