A small chain with locations in Mexico and the Caribbean, Senor Frog's caters mostly to tourists, functioning as a festive family friendly restaurant by day and a lively nightclub by night. The menu is big, with enough choice to please everyone, even kids. The unique Mexican Shrimp Cocktail is fabulous, and south of the border salads are hearty and satisfying. In addition to specialties like Winter Sabana (a thin beef filet covered with refried beans, salsa verde and Monterey Jack, served with a side of tortillas), there are a few American favorites as well, such as steaks, burgers and ribs.
