The waiter was cheerful, the service was prompt, and the food was good. The green corn tamales were enjoyable, but a little too wet. The guacamole was excellent. Everyone in our party enjoyed their food.

Seated, eating out of there in 1 hour! With 3 adjoining tables at the height of Friday evening dinner hour! Amazing service, fantastic guacamole and good food. We were amazed at the ability to handle such a large crowd so efficiently. Good energy from staff and customers

I've been enjoying El Cholo since moving to LA in 1979. Hadn't been there for several years till yesterday, when I took my daughter and granddaughter because in Boston, where they live, really good Mexican food is not easily had. Well, El Cholo is as good as ever -- even without ordering their outstanding magaritas. I had my favorite, the cheese-sauce laden burrito, and the others had enchiladas and quesadillas. Absolutely delicious. Plus the service was friendly and efficient. Glad to see that such an excellent restaurant continues its first-rate tradition. Not to be missed.

Food really good! Service was good. We just waited for a couple of minutes to be seated. My kids enjoy their food as well. Price is reasonable.
