Now, years later, this duo—like a set of burrito-wielding Wonder Twins—is pretty much living proof that culinary prowess just happens to run in the family. Need further proof? We recommend the fish tacos, cheesy nachos or respectably girthy burritos that they've been whipping up at their family-owned burrito joint for the past five years, much to the joy of many-a-Cumming fan.
Unlike the countless chain burrito shops that have reared their fast-food heads by the dozen in recent years, Mestizo keeps it fresh. Like, really fresh. No passing your precious burrito through a General Motors-worthy assembly line, no pitiful iceberg lettuce taunting you from atop those nachos and, most of all, nary-a-microwave on the premises. Instead, each dish is made fresh-to-order using ingredients handpicked from the farmers' market by Alicia and Mildred themselves. Just remember: when you're sinking your teeth into a taco stuffed with grilled tilapia, purple cabbage and that creamy homemade chipotle sauce, you have their grandma to thank.
