Tonight's Dinner

We're skipping lunch today anticipating tonight's dinner at what we believe is the most consistently enjoyable restaurant in Southern California, El Cholo. El Cholo was first established in Los Angeles nearly nine decades ago and is particularly famous for its green corn tamales and margaritas. Legend has it that nachos first became well-known at El Cholo.

We usually eat at El Cholo's La Habra location in Orange County, opened in 1962. A political side note: the La Habra branch displays an autographed photo of President Bush among the celebrity pictures in the lobby. :)

Those who know the restaurant well, or want to know it, might be interested in searching out El Cholo Cookbook: Recipes and Memories from California's Best-Loved Mexican Kitchen.
