The design might look like Oh! Howard Johnson's, but Oh! Mexico (300 SW First Ave., Hollywood, 954-527-5969) promises satisfying, hearty Mexican items. That means not fried clams but fried chimichangas, burritos, fajitas, and the like. Best of all, a tequila bar offers succor to the weary road warrior; the two-month-old restaurant is located just off the I-95 exit to Hollywood Boulevard. Thus you can avoid traipsing into downtown Hollywood, where parking can be more competitive and dining more expensive, and easily turn rush hour into happy hour.
