Arturo's: Safe, but not colorful
Arturo's is a more upscale place than most border town joints. It has great parking with a security guard. It's not as colorful a place as I like to frequent, but for those who are not "conditioned" for eating in Mexico, this place is for you.
Favorite Dish: Arturo's has a full bar!

Garcia's Panoramic Restaurant: Lunch Overlooking the Main Street
We chose Garcia's Panoramic Restaurant because it seemed to us to be the best choice in town. It is a nice dining room, complete with linen table cloths, on the second floor above one of the nicer gift shops on the main strip. From our window table we could look out over the traffic and hustle in the marketplace below. The service was very good. Our only complaint would be that we had to pay extra for every drink refill. The glasses were relatively small and we were hot and thirsty.
Favorite Dish: The fixed price luncheon menu offered a choice of 10 entres for $7.45 each plus drink. These included a 6 ounce filet mignon, Mexican plate, roast turkey, stuffed shrimp and frog legs. I had the Mexican plate and Karen tried the frog legs. Both were good but not exceptional.
