Top pick: The top pick is trompo, obviously, but less obviously, we prefer it in quesadilla format.
The downside: With all that outdoor seating, if you visit in July or August you should plan to order to-go. Also, the elotes make up in pulverized Takis for what they lack in freshly grilled flavor.
Fun fact: At its original location on Singleton Avenue, Trompo was named one of the best new restaurants in America by Bon Appetit.
