Casco Antiguo is great. It’s easy to get a reservation at this Mexican spot, and there’s always a great crowd inside drinking on-tap margaritas and generally making the place feel birthday-appropriate. Plus, the food is seriously delicious - starters like guacamole and homemade fire-roasted salsa are great, but the perfect beer-battered halibut tacos and red enchiladas made with braised pork are good-time guarantees. Unless you’re vegetarian. In which case, get the plantain/black bean empanada.
