Foursquare Tips

  • Request table-side guacamole, and ask for extra lime/lemon and cilantro
  • Great Cadillac!
  • Tortilla soup isn't great, stick with the fajitas!
  • The Friday nite mariachis are KICK ASS here! They sang my fav Desperado song!!!!
  • Why does this El Cholo serve green chips? Unsure, but I enjoyed the festive atmosphere.
  • Didn't like the enchiladas that much
  • Skip the average soup and salad and march straight to the California or Mariscos enchiladas. And dont miss the homemade tortilla.
  • Omar is the greatest waiter. Ever. Seriously.
  • Blue corn chicken enchiladas are the best
  • Side table guacamole and listen to some Mariachi!service can be rather slow on busy nights! Valet Parking only~
  • Food is always good but service is slow and chips are always bad.
  • The green corn temale is really sweet.
  • Get the green corn tamales!
  • Entrees were good...the Chips and Salsa not so much.
  • Get the LA Lemonade
  • Drinks and chips and guacamole.
  • Guacamole freshly made at your table-Awesome Quest the best I have ever had. Not your usual queso blended cheese with mushrooms and so much more. Both a must order!!
  • Amazing a MUST try. Order the Guacamole(freshly made at your table) and the quest. You won't be sorry
  • Veggie Tostada! Looks like a salad...
  • Asada Sonora Nachos.
