How about La Taverna? A nice little Mexican style sports bar which is just up from Carboncitos on Tenth. Good food with lots of locals. I'm usually the only gringo.

...

Many Mexicans live on the east side of the highway...

For that matter, many Mexicans patronize bars on/near 5th Ave. So not sure what you're looking for — a cantina?

I've been to la taberna, but not kixten. I want to immerse myself into their world as far as their local hangouts. thanks for your input. a cantina is fine, if it's a top choice for locals after work, etc.
