You may have faced this dinner situation before: Dad wants to catch up on the game but Mom wants a family dinner.

We have just the solution in this week's Best Bites.

The new La Hacienda Restaurant and Sports Cantina on San Mateo and Montgomery is a branch of the original La Hacienda in Old Town - but with a sports twist and a bigger menu.

Chef Pancho can cook up everything you can imagine. From tacos to chimichangas, burritos, wings, and even salad. The menu offers all the traditional New Mexican dishes with some bar food.

With 32 televisions inside the cantina, you'll never miss a moment of the big game.

"It's a family restaurant. If you want to come have a few beers, watch the fight or watch the games you can do that. If you want to come and just have a nice dinner you can do that too. We have a little bit of something for everybody," says manager Mark Garcia.
