8. Jose's Mexican Bar & Grill

The margaritas and beer are icy, the chips crunchy and the enchiladas tasty at this Mexican restaurant near Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Diego Garcia prints, sombreros and whirling overhead fans give the feel of a Mexican resort (or is that just the after-effect of the margaritas?). Several combination plates available for less than $10. 638 Wave St., Monterey, (831) 655-4419
