Classic LA Mexican Restaurant

El Cholo has been in LA forever; it's an institution. Although this branch isn't as famous as the Western Ave. one, it still captures that fun, festive feeling. Although the food is good, the bar and margarita experience is what you come for. El Cholo is great for families with young children, parties or dates. The staff is great.
