(Of course.)

Pica’s Mexican Taqueria is a perfect spot to refuel and refresh from whatever takes a bite out of you during your day. Most people know this eatery for its tasty food — their burritos and tostadas are a force to be reckoned with for a fresh dinner that satisfies. And of course many people love their amazing lunch specials: tasty, affordable and fast.

As soon as I step in the building and experience the smell of fresh food on the grill, the sound of Bob Dylan’s voice beckons me to sit down, relax and sip something refreshing. I’m at ease and as the sun streams in the windows I couldn’t be happier taking a load off my feet while I peruse the Daily and devour some hot and perfectly salted chips with guacamole. It’s my go-to impromptu spot for any post-activity debriefing with friends.

Pica’s is friendly to everyone but one major plus for locals is that they do not close for the off-season. They’ll be offering impressive specials in a few weeks so stay tuned.

The Drink of the Week: Their margarita, of course. This thing is famous here in Jackson-Town! Fresh-squeezed limes and lemon juice and a touch of orange juice are what makes this standard become a favorite with everyone who tries it. A splash of simple syrup harmonizes the sourness of the lemon and lime, mix it all with a healthy amount of  tequila and triple sec and you have the perfectly balanced spring beverage.
