Based on the film, Casablanca, this Mexican eatery makes for quite a unique combination of themes, but it works. Located right on the corner of Rose and Lincoln, this restaurant creates a fine selection of dishes ranging from the tangy chicken to a dish cleverly named "Play it again, Carlos," which is a steak that is marinated with Dos Equis beer. No matter what you order, the best part are the homemade tortillas, which are made on a stove right next to a life-size replica of Humphrey Bogart. Weekends bring live entertainment, but try not to say, "Play it again, Sam."

This place is always crowded and deservedly so. There's something undeniably hip about a place that doesn't try to be cool - it just is. The no-frills approach is evident on the wood-paneled walls and the scarcity of seats. No great loss, though - once the crowd forms, you have to stand to get service from the beleaguered but friendly bartenders. Plus, you can always count on great music playing and no cover at the door.
