Success! Thanks for posting your review of El Cholo Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Green Corn?

I got three words for you: ""Green Corn Tamale."" The fact that these are served for only a limited time makes me want them more. Yum. In the off season, your place is still awesome. Love the drinks and the chill atmosphere!

If you like to chat after you eat...

If you like long chats after you eat, nursing your favorite beverage, then El Cholo is the spot! They don't pressure you, or make you adhere to the unspoken 45 minutes from seating to clearing the plates away thing. One of my companions said it reminded her of being in France, where a meal is an experience of conversation and cuisine. I had Annie's Early California Enchilada: a tasty veggie medley of spinach, ... view more
