  • Mekenita Mexican Grille


    Cuisine: Mexican
    Features: Children's menu, Takeout

    Lutz: 17623 N Dale Mabry Highway, Lutz, 33548

    Rand Packer, the celebrated former chef at Roy's in Tampa, chucked the fancy world of Hawaiian-style misoyaki butterfish for something new and different, aiming to fill a gap in the culinary landscape near his home in Lutz. It's a funky and affordable outpost of regional Mexican cuisine, cooking from Oaxaca, the land of seven moles. Order at the counter from a short menu of tamales and thick tortilla cups called sopes, salads, tacos and burritos (stuffed with smoked pork, grilled skirt steak or wahoo), then amble over to the small salsa bar and stock up. Pair it all with deep purple and cinnamony sangria or one of a changing lineup of agua frescas.

    Lutz: 18421 N U.S. 41, Lutz, 33549

    The now 270+ strong chain of family pubs started in Brandon. Founder Jim Mellody was a transplanted Pennsylvanian who tried a steakhouse, but when that didn't work, he added his mother's maiden name to the word "Beef" on the sign and watched business take off. The formula is simple: good wings, burgers and other casual American fare in an environment that is family-friendly.
