I just love this cozy East Hollywood place near Virgil/Sunset split. The food comes super hot as in temperature - do not touch the plate! House Margaritas are strong and delicious. 2 is more than enough. Parking in the back is tricky, so drive very slow - one way in and out. I have been eating here since 1996 and still the same.

Yuck. Not my favorite at all. Tough Carne Asada, no sides. Cash only. Only good side is strong margaritas.

Love the dark light florescent dorm poster vibe inside. The atmosphere is a little dark and dreary but you gotta check it out.
