Food is only mediocre and the last time I ate there, I found a hair in my food. Sent it back and my new food had a hair in it as well. Definitly not the best Mexican food in town.

I do not feel that there is anything authentic with El Cholo. The food tastes like an overpriced frozen dinner.\n\nThis restaurant would not even be in my personal top 200.

Fine established Mexican restaurant in La Habra/Whittier area. Good specials of the night, entertainment, a fun family affair.

What's great about El Cholo is that right next to the hipster waiting to get his green corn tamale, thee is a Latino family just waiting to get some good cooking at a decent price.

I didn't like this place. The food wasn't very good and the service was terrible! We had to get up and ask someone to bring us refills on our drinks and I didn't like the tortilla chips.

Why, oh why call it Mexian food. the food is a hybrid of Mexican/Californian/American food. Now, the food isn't bad at all...I mean, it's very yummy. Lunch will run ya $15-20, depending on what you order. The waitstaff is slow especially for lunch time. Margaritas are the reason to come here. They have so many kinds, all will surely put you in a pleasant mood. Very yummy by the pitcher, and a bit cheaper too! I can name half a dozen restaurants that serve authentic Mexican food, not this stuff.

Let's be clear. El Cholo does not have ""the best"" mexican food in town, but it does have the best drinks. I hear people all the time say that this is the best mexican food in Los Angeles. Come on! This place is best know for it's margaritas. Maybe too many people are too f'd to realize that the food is fair. Think it's a bit greasy, but they do have some strong plates. It is a great place to get together and drink it up. Let's be real and keep it real.

They have pretty good Mexican food. I am not crazy about Mexican food, but the chicken chimichanga was delicious. The server was very friendly and accomodating, so service was very good. Portions are quite large.

I have been to this restaurant only twice but in both occassions I had a great time. Food is excellent and ambience is great. What more can you ask for. Try their chicken burrito and their margaritas. You will want to come back.

That's all you really need to remember about El Cholo. Go there with a group for happy hour and enjoy the margaritas, then leave and go someplace else for dinner.

I do mean ok, just ok. The food wasn't all that I thought it was going to be. I want here for my Birthday, was not impressed. However the mix drinks were excellent. THe service was good. I do agree with voting them the best Margarita's in Los Angels. But that's about all.

Not sure where this place got the reputation as a LA landmark. My 3 month old niece screamed every time we tried to bring her inside and I think she has the right idea. The decor is nice, but the staff was surly and the food was bad. No need to go deep into a sketchy nieghborhood for this one.

El Cholo food can be quite good and the Marguritas are terrific. The problem is that things go down hill when this very large restaurant is crowded. I advise arriving early, or avoid the weekend. The green corn tamalies are always great.

The food at El Cholo is pretty good. I like to have the Chicken Chimis. They are great and are alot of food to eat with rice and beans. The other food I tried is pretty good but not the best I have ever had.

It's not INCREDIBLE!!!. Nor is the atmosphere AMAZING!!!!!. \n\nIt's nice, fun and the food is good. It's also a bit more expensive than a lunch should be. And the ""world famour margeritas"" are nothing more than expensive margeritas. They'll get you sloshed but so will a bottle of Boon's Farm.\n\nFor my daily mexican fix I'll stick with the simple and authentic. Someplace like Romero's is much more my style.

The green corn tamales and chili relleno here are real good! The green corn tamales are a little on the sweet side, but still delicious. They have a margarita here called the 24 Kt. Margarita that costs $24. One sip and you'll know why it's so damn expensive!

Yeah, this place is a mainstay in the LA restaurant scene, but the truth is, it's just not that good. Well, at least the food is not that good. The atmosphere is a lot of fun, with the labyrinth of rooms and the friendly waiters. But the food is fair to midland, no real spice to it, and certainly nothing original.
