    Food blogger Carolyn of The Healthy Voyager recommends El Vato. "The restaurant prides itself on using organic, free-range ingredients in all of its hearty fare, made for vegans and nonvegans alike."

    Check for Gilt deals. The sangria is delicious. Complimentary chips and salsa and the best tacos are the steak and the carnitas! :-)

    Not a tequila fan, no problem! Ask for Riazul Anejo neat. Don't shoot it, sip it. It's aged in cognac barrels for 2 years. Top right corner in pic

    With over 100 Tequilas in this place, my favorite is Riazul Tequila! This boutique spirit is mind blowing, the bottle is contemporary, and the taste unsurpassed!

    Margarita pitchers have about 8 drinks in them and cost $40 - great deal if you're splitting with a group

    El Vato tries to make traditional Tex Mex as healthy as possible without sacrificing taste. The kitchen uses zero-trans-fat oils packed with good-for-you omega-3s.

    Nothing extraordinary if you're into Mexican, but Miami isn't exactly known to excel in Tex Mex either. Not terrible and not terribly priced either, try the $10 "build your own burrito" option.

    Who adds gratuity to a party of 3? Someone who disappears into the Bermuda Triangle & finds the gratuity button. WTH?!
