Even in the midst of the entertainment industry, there aren’t many places where you can walk in at 1 a.m. and grab some dinner. This is one of the few, a ’50s-style dive, in an adobe-style building with red Naugahyde booths and year-round Christmas lights that’s been the local favorite since 1956. It’s still run by the founding family. The margaritas are strong and cheap, the chips are fresh and hot, the salsa is spicy, and all dinners come with the restaurant’s signature chopped taco salad. In addition to all the usual suspects, the extensive menu includes a few Mexican favorites and regional dishes (sopes, molcajete, Sonora tacos) that don’t often find their way onto U.S. menus. Tables on the patio are perfect for warm nights, and are quieter than the dim indoor dining room. On weekends, the wait for a table can be long.
