El Cholo

Mexican | Santa Monica

An "LA original", this Mid-City mainstay from 1923 and its offshoots "haven't changed much over the years" with "straightforward" "Cali-Mex" grub (with standout green-corn tamales) that's either "decent" or "delicious" "depending on how many margaritas you drink"; although some say it's "living on its long history", the "old-world" decor is "charming", costumed servers "pleasant" and, on the whole, "it just oozes fun."
