A Mexican Diner and Bar

Like the first Mexican diners that opened in Southern California in the 1930s and 1940s, had their haydays in the 1950s and 1960s, and have all but faded away, El Famoso serves up Mexican and American comfort food the way it was then — from street tacos to enchiladas Suizas to big brisket burritos to Cheeezeburgers.

El Famoso’s menu is a fusion of southern California Mexican favorites and delicious Tex-Mex staples like queso and fajitas. And don’t forget the tequila and frozen drinks!

Get ready to be transported to a festive time and place when Mexican street and traditional food was becoming part of the American dining routine.
