Their burger is another favorite that you should give a try. This Friday, July 4th, they welcome us and all their esteemed customers to partake in some amazing food and good times. With a hat tip to 1776, year of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Los Muertos offers specials including $17 peso pints! And $76 peso house favorites!
