BEST MARGARITA ON EARTH – I love this place! As a first generation Mexican-American, I can tell you I know what traditional, home made cooking is, and this is one of the VERY FEW places Ive gone to where everything is up to par, and doesn't LOOK AND TASTE like Taco Bell. So those of you that LEARNED Mexican cuisine or think Del Taco is it, and wrote a bad review, YOU KNOW NOTHING, silly silly fools.
I really Love the ambiance, and the VERY welcoming, upbeat multi-lingual, personable staff! They're so friendly and fun! And yeah, they're running around at times due to how packed it can get, but the moment you tag anyone down, (whether it be your waiter or not), they rush to tend to your need.... Which brings me to the BEST PART!...THE MARGARITAS !! On the rocks, with salt! This is a TRUE Margarita people, and it's packing heat! One will get you forgetting what had you in a tiff earlier, or that diet you were on! So yummy, so boozy, and so worth it! You'll keep em coming!
The decor is funky, and Mexi Kitsch yes ...i made up a word, but it works! kitsch and Mexican at the same time, and you can bring the LOUD friends here, no worries, no pretentious folks here....only space for us normal people who tend to laugh a bit louder than most every now and then!
...all in all...its a great spot...for fun, and relaxation, and to forget all the worries in your world!
Fun Night!! – There's nothing bad about this place. . . nothing, well except watch how many maragita's you have! They really give you your money's worth!
The gentlemen who run the establishment are so exciting that they will end up in our movie one day!
One of my favorite restaurants in all of LA – I can't say enough about this place! I've been going to El Conquistador for years. Ive had friends throw birthday parties there, Ive taken out-of-towners there, family, friends, you name it. The food is amazing and truly authentic. I dare you to find a better margarita in Los Angeles! The restaurant is adorable and the wait staff is great fun. I absolutely love this place.
What a toilet. – Betty Davis one said.."What a dump." Need I say more. Good cocktails but food was lousy and the place looks like the inside of a Pinata. Ticky Tacky border decor with third world food.
Great Margaritas! – If you love good margaritas, I highly recommend this place. The food is so-so. But there have been times, it was good. The margaritas were well blended. They always used Kosher salt on glasses instead of table salt. The service, especially the host, was always lively, personable and attentive. My friend and I enjoyed it so much, that we made it part of our weekly dining experience on Friday afternoons.
Amazing margaritas and better-than-average food – Yes, the atmosphere is tacky but that's part of the charm of this Silverlake hole in the wall. Went for the first time last week and had the best margarita (okay, best two margaritas) of my life. Wish they were less than $9, but they were delicious and potent. The enchilada sauces were unique and delicious. I will be back!
tacky tacky tacky – What a dump..bad food and the decor is tacky. looks like the inside of a china cabinet that was run over by a bunch of cows.Nasty stanky hole in the wall
Mexican oasis caters to Silver Lake locals in search of potent margaritas and bottomless baskets of chips. – In Short
The decor of this popular Sunset Junction spot is festive--from the textured pink walls to the dining room packed with huge butterfly kites, folk art and stained glass. Two separate bars are frequently filled to capacity as drinkers complement their margaritas with the Botana combo; a mix of nachos, taquitos, quesadillas and house-made guacamole. Entree favorites include chiles rellenos, onion- and pepper-simmered sirloin and an earthy mole slathered over chicken breasts or enchiladas.
Best escape in town – I was introduced to this place two years ago by a dear friend. Hands down my favorite place to end up after along week at work. Great atmosphere, THE BEST MARGARITAS and good food. But the best thing about this restaurant is by far the atmosphere; lots of colorful people, gay and straight, the decorations ,which vary according to the closest holiday or celebration, done by one of the bartenders, and the wait staff is by far one of the friendliest and attentive you will encounter anywhere at any venue,how they remember everyone is beyond me but they do. If you just want to get out and relax and have a good somewhat loud time this is the place. Try the Blue Curacao margarita!! Give this place a shot.
Amazing Margaritas!!! – If you are looking for a potent Margarita, this is the place. While they don't come cheap (about $9), you'll really only need one to get you toasty. As soon as you sit, you are given chips and two kinds of salsa. The menu has many choices of entrees, from your standard beef tacos to seafood offerings -- and there are also some selections for vegetarians. There is complimentary soup with each dish, and there are also a number of great combinations to choose from if you are indecisive, like myself. The food is considerably more expensive than a taqueria, but the generous portions and the big spoonfuls of guacamole on each plate keep it from being overpriced. There are changing daily specials that keep things interesting. The decor is amazing, and it is a great place to bring guests from out of town. The outdoor patio is a nice place to sit, as you are surrounded by lights and plants and can see everyone entering and leaving the restaurant. While it can be very busy on weekends, the wait for a table is never too long. All in all, it is a great place to enjoy a drink and dinner -- especially if you are catching a show at the vista down the street.
