If you have a sunny afternoon to kill, there aren’t many better places to spend it than on the El Alma patio. It’s a little pricier than some of the other Tex-Mex spots around, but the multi-level patio (with plenty of shade) and quality food more than make up for it. Then again, if you hit it during happy hour (highly recommended) you can take advantage of some excellent deals. Don’t miss the queso - it’s one of our favorites in town.
