Dr Pepper Marinated Steak Tacos at Roadrunner

This hip little local chain serves unique Western dishes that every cowboy would love. But no dish here has a bigger following than these tacos, created by executive chef Matthew Silverman, who marinates certified Angus beef in Dr Pepper to tenderize it. This technique, used in Texas for many years, gives the steak extra flavor and a sweet, caramelized quality. $14, multiple locations, RoadRunnerLasVegas.com.
