East LA is a Hoboken staple due to its selection of frozen margheritas. The food won't blow you away, but it is VERY good. I've never had something that I didn't like there.
They start you off with unlimited chips and salsa while you browse their extensive menu. Many options for beef, chicken, shrimp, and vegetarian. Very big portions. I always get the fajitas, usually with beef, but they're all delicious. I have had the enchilada and the burrito before and they were both great.
TIP: TUESDAY NIGHTS ARE "BUY ONE ENTREE, GET ONE FREE". Great deal considering you may be spending some money on the Margheritas.
There's a bar in the front of the restaurant, which is convenient if you're waiting for a table.
Things you should know about this place is that it can get very loud from music/loud people. If you're looking for a nice romantic Mexican dinner, you'll like Charrito's (BYOB) in Hoboken better.
But if you're looking to drink margheritas and have more of a Mexican bar/cantina atmosphere, you can't do better than EAST LA.
