716 W 21st Ave, Covington
Arguably one of the best Tex-Mex restaurants in the area, Sombreros uses the freshest ingredients in their delicious fajitas and superb margaritas. After lunch or after work, head to the Sombreros cantina any weekday from 3 to 6 p.m. for their half-off house margaritas made with the world-famous Sanza tequila.
4. Mellow Mushroom
1645 U.S. Hwy 190, Covington
