We had the wings, fajaita and tacos and they were all great. The margaritas were excellent. This was a fun, laid back place with great prices. We are a family with three teens but the crowd was mostly 20 to 30 yr olds enjoying a fun night out. Waitress was very nice.

This was the highlight of my trip to Hollywood. We went here for an afternoon beverage and snack and got there just in time for the 2 for 1 happy hour. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the place is a decent size and is pretty comfortable inside. We ordered the nachos, taquitos and some queso and it was all really good. With all of that food and about 8 drinks our bill was only $45. We spent double that on 5 drinks at The Standard, so I would say that's a good deal. I don't know what the place is like at night, but for a relaxed afternoon hangout and a snack it was perfect. Their brunch specials looked pretty good too, but unfortunately we couldn't wait until noon when they opened.

The place is full of locals, mostly wanna be actors who have not "Made It" yet, who are there for the budget price on drinks -- You can only buy drinks/ food from a server -- If you try to order from the bar they will know it is your first time there and ignore you! LOL! Great for Sunday afternoons!

We went earlier for happy hour and enjoyed dinner and drinks (which were very weak and expensive). We went back later at night for going out, and were denied entry due to the host didn't like the state we resided in (were not from Cali). It was a horrible experience being denied to go to a bar when your of age and they will not even try to call authorities. I would HiGHLY not recommend this place. There's much better Mexican restaurants in the area (aka Santa Monica Place one).

We went because it was our first night and this place was packed - seems like it was a good choice as it was 2-for-1 drinks and the food was just right. We had the nachos with queso dip (queso was burnt a bit but the salsa fresca was outstanding) and the chicken taquitos which were both very good. Our bartender was great and full of advice for a couple folks from out of town.
