We went to celebrate a friends birthday, and had a fun night. The Margaritas were delicious. The Pina Colada over priced as it comes in a coconut. Should be optional. Everything from guacamole to fajitas to quesadilla were very good with great size portions

Tequila drinks, decent Mexican food, Dia de Los Muertos decor, awesome Spanish language covers of rock classics, and good "bad" movies (from Elvis movies to Valley Girl) projected above the bar -- what's not to love? Chips come with two tasty salsas as well as...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
