As we entered Santiagos, Glynnis was processing a basket full of mangos for the night's fresh mango margaritas. The special was either: 1) a fresh shrimp salad complete with sliced avocados, or 2) a nicely seasoned steak with a bean medely.
Both were so very well done that we must give Karina another 4 stars for the detail she put into these specials, which you are guaranteed every Friday night here at Santiagos.

This Labor Day come to Santiagos for the hearty Tampiquena. Tampiquena is the most popular combination plates in Mexico, traditionally Steak served with Enchilada with sides. “Tampiqueña” implies that the dish comes from the city of Tampico in Mexico; this is incorrect, but the dish is certainly served there. Jose Luis Loredo—from Tampico—opened his Tampico Club in Mexico City about 1939, and this was his signature dish.
Santiagos serves a traditional 8 oz. seasoned rib-eye served with an enchilado topped with red or green sauce on a sizzling skillet with rice, refried beans and a side of our house made guacamole. Yes, it is time to rest from your labors, come to Bisbee and celebrate Santiagos style.
