Hugo’s is a Montrose institution where you go when you want to eat a lot of Mexican food in a more upscale space - think chandeliers and lots of ivy. They’re known for their table-side shaken margaritas and traditional dishes like ceviche and mole poblano, along with one of the best tree-covered patios in town, but more than any of that, it’s their Sunday brunch buffet that sets them apart. It’s $35, includes more than 20 dishes like chilaquiles, duck carnitas, and tamales, and is exactly where you should eat on a Sunday when your only plans afterward are sitting and/or sleeping.
