Horseshoe Restaurant is the very definition of a hole-in- the-wall restaurant, in the best sense of the term. The small Mexican restaurant on Buckeye Road is inelegantly sandwiched between a mass of carburetor and machine shops, but don’t be too put off by the location. The restaurant happens to be a fine destination for Mexican comfort food. Breakfast plates shine here, including Sunday morning menudo, and cheesy chilaquiles plates swimming in your choice of green or red sauce. You’ll also find a small menu of home-style caldo stews, including a pretty good caldo de res (beef stew) and albondigas (meatball) soup.
