Hi, I'll be needing to eat dinner with a group of 6 or so in Irvine this Sunday around 9PM; I'd like Mexican (only if it's GREAT, and not just a stand) but will take anything fantastic. IDEAS, please?

  1. Hi, one of my favorite SoCal Mexican restaurants is El Cholo. The original, in LA, was established circa 1910 on Western near Wilshire. A second one is in La Habra. OK, to the point... there is a new one in Irvine! It may not have the great old-time ambiance, but what in Irvine does? If the menu is even close to the others, it's worth a visit- especially with a group. Don't have the contact info, but they're in the phone book. Everything is wonderful, but especially the green corn tamales, available only May-Sept. Oh yeah, IMHO the best margaritas anywhere. Call them about service hours- most Irvine places start rolling up the sidewalks around 9.
