    Cochinita Pibil Nachos and carnitas

  • Jeff Q.

    If you like spicy get the pibil

    The carnitas + steak tacos are absurdly good. As is the watermelon lemonade (pulpy cause it's fresh so don't complain). One warning: there are A LOT of onions in EVERYTHING- listed or not.

    The night I went they were very under staffed and the waiters didn't seem to know what they were doing but they were incredibly nice and the tacos made up for everything.

    Goat cheese and black bean nachos are good enough for 2! Great food

    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

    The dirty horchata is phenomenal.

    They finally have beer! Highlights of the draft list include: Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA, Oskar Blues Old Chub, and The Bruery Humulus Lager. Yay!

    The dirty horchata is on everyones list here.

    LA Home & Style · March 14, 2013

    Must: Elote Especial. Recommend: Dirty Horchata (w/ espresso), the Nueske bacon, black bean & mushroom quesadilla, the hot-as-Hades habanero salsa on the Pibil tacos.

    Kristen Lisanti · December 16, 2012
  • Elisa O.

    Voted Best nachos in LA by the LA Weekly!

    Cochinita Pibil is like my step-father's from Mexico City. I think I can eat the rice with crema for breakfast, lunch, and dinner

    SocialSoundSystem · October 17, 2012
  • Maxwell R.

    Get a two taco combo - balance the crazy hot cochinita pibil taco with a pork taco. And get a dirty horchata to drink. I should know... I'm the mayor.

    While you won’t find beer on the menu, it’s a bring-your-own brews place, so you’ll find some savings there and a great vibe in which to enjoy a meal with the guys. Read more

    Bring your own beer, wine or cava in. The chicken tinga nachos are insane. Come hungry.

    Try the Elote Especial

    Brett Rothenberg · March 25, 2012
  • Tobie C.

    Holy crap, the salpicon torta is ridiculous...good, really good ridiculousness (pork). Elote especial is the best side dish ever (corn).

    Tobie C · February 16, 2012
  • Andrew S.

    Pork tacos and short rib tacos are the best. The corn with lime cream is also amazing.

    Andrew S · December 24, 2011
  • Mike R.

    The cochinita pibil is so spicy it makes hallucinate. Just a bit.

    Mike Romo · December 9, 2011
  • Ryan P.

    Quesadillas are incredible, and don't miss the elote salad. Do yourself a favor and eat here.

    Ryan Pohanic · October 22, 2011

    pork torta and dirty horchata !!

    Mike Macadaan · May 15, 2011
  • Robert V.

    Casual nuevo-mexican food at it's finest. Tastiest tortas that have EVER met my lips. The pork loin torta and kobe beef torta are worthy to be tagged best sandwiches in LA.

    Robert Vallejos · May 4, 2011
  • Jason S.

    Dirty Horchata!! Horchata + espresso shot. $5.50

    Jason S. · April 3, 2011

    Their tortas are amazing. The pork one is the best of the three.

    Ernesto Moreno · March 4, 2011
  • Norman H.

    The corn side dish is very special. Combination of several tastes - tangy and a bit sweet too.

    Norman Hollyn · December 31, 2010
