Good informal food

Lovely Mexican food in a very relaxed atmosphere. Large portions of tasty food with great deals on huge margaritas. Full of locals. I would happily eat here again. Sports on TVs but no sound so it was there as a talking point but not distracting if you not interested.

Walking around and exploring Hollywood's famous Walk of Fame can leave you exhausted though... If you are craving for a Corona and mexican food - this is your place. My suggestion... a table right next to the wide open windows. Taco Tuesdays... all you can eat tacos. Check out the cocktail menu. The staff is funny and working real fast.

Do not miss the happy hour from 4-8 pm. Servers are friendly and their recommendations usually work. So feel free and order whatever they do suggest. I had the melon and pepper margaritas. To do die for! Trust me.

The huge drinks were fun but a little more than I could drink over the meal. The food was amazing value for money - each plate was MASSIVE and we definitely didn't need starters and mains. I hope you like it hot though cause SPICY was the word of the day!

Spent 3 days vacationing at a beachfront Venice hotel and came to this place to eat every night! It was awesome! The steak tacos and fries loaded with steak were THE BEST! We had the 2 for 1 Margaritas during happy hour and it really got us going! We sat upstairs on ALL YOU CAN EAT TACO NIGHT TUESDAY and... More

Leave the car at home & get a cab to this packed but fun bar on Sunset. The food is great - real mexican flavours at low prices, and fab drink specials like 2 for 1 HUGE margaritas. A must for anyone visiting WeHo

The service at this restaurant was horrible. The bartender and manager are extremely rude. The bartenders wife tried to steal our iPhone from the table. We took the phone out off her hand and she got so mad that started screaming at us to get out off her city!!! Horrible, unsafe place.

Ordered a Mojito and were told they had none! Table next to us ordered one 15 mins later only to be presented with one! Asked the server who said it might have been because they ran out of mint!!! Had to continuously request a beer and the food was extremely average avoid this place
