This restaurant is great ... Margaritas are delicious ... Only thing I did not like is pay for parking ... I wish they give you credit for parking

Great, authentic Mexican food very near the downtown LA Live area! Much more reasonable than anything in LA Live.... All those restaurants are way over priced. El Cholo is right there.... Next to the Marriot, Nokia Theater, Staples Center downtown. I ate there twice in four days when I went to a conference at the Convention Center! Good margaritas too! Go to El Cholo!

They've been around since the 1920s for good reason. Restaurants all over Southern California. Great margaritas. Try the enchiladas with the fried egg. Uniquely theirs and yummy.

It has history, it has food, it has The Best Margaritas by the pitcher no less. What can you say? If in LA, you have to go at least once.
