One of the very first Spanish restaurants -- and longest-standing -- in the Magic City, Casa Juancho has a reputation that precedes itself. Large parties and families gather here for graduations, birthdays, and anything else worth celebrating. And why wouldn't they? Guitarists serenade guests with old-school Spanish tunes inside this cozy restaurant, which feels authentically Spanish thanks to its low, rustic wood ceilings and water well. Endless baskets of bread that make their way to your table are the perfect companion to Casa Juancho's soups, tapas, and entrées. Caldo gallego ($7) is a must on any visit. Switch up your selection of tapas -- from morcilla ($10) to something less risky but equally tasty, such as the croquetas de abuela filled with grouper ($10). Once you cross over into the entrées, prices get steep. If you want paella, there are four to choose from, all for $30 per person. You'll probably be too full for dessert, but then your server will present a demonstration tray, and suddenly you're ordering arroz con leche and torrijas. Ole!
