Are the following related? Are their names a coincidence? El Conquistador, El Compadre, El Cholo, El Carmen, El Cid, El Chavo, El Coyote. [moved from Los Angeles board]
What's the deal with the fact that all of these spots that claim to specialize in margaritas and mexican food all have a one word, "C" name? Does everyone know the answer except me?
have you noticed how many individuals have the same first name?
it's probably a result of the same "deal." J/K
with all due respect, I would be pretty shocked to find that any restaurant with a name like that WOULDN'T be serving Mexican food and margaritas.
el Conquistador -- The Conqueror
El Compadre -- The Friend/Buddy (possibly godfather...)
El Cholo -- The Mixed-race
El Carmen -- a cottage with a garden,
El Cid -- the national hero of Spain; a nobleman
El Chavo -- the boy, the kid
El Coyote (c'mon, do I need to translate it?)
The names have absolutely nothing to do with each other, other than one letter and being written in Spanish.
(disclaimer: I'm sure the translations aren't perfect...I DID look them up...but it's enough to indicate that there is no common thread there.)
