Atomic Cowboy Restaurant Review: Atomic Cowboy rambles over half a block, with the indoor restaurant area making up a relatively small part of the complex. There’s a Quonset-style bar, a spacious patio and a music annex, all of which allow food. Points go to the chefs for concentrating on the details, like Serrano ketchup and guacamole ranch condiments --- and, of course, very good house salsa. Burritos with fire-roasted chicken or slow-simmered, pulled pork are our go-to dishes, but Paco’s tacos, available in classic, carne asada or fish variations, are worthy of their loyal local following. More combustible fuel comes in the form of specialty tequilas and signature cocktails, like the cowboy cosmo and cactus juice margarita. Mornings, on the other hand, are energized either by double espresso in the dirty chai or by wheatgrass smoothies and hearty oatmeal. Entertainment varies from classic country bands to house DJs, burlesque performances and backyard boxing bouts.
