El Chucho Cocina Superior
Order a la carte tacos and other Mexican staples for under $10 at this hipster hot spot.

This is what you call a hot spot. Expect up to a 45 minute wait for dinner at this liquor store-turned-Mexican restaurant. Staples like asada tacos and eclectic creations like the Sonoran Dog (hot dog with salsa, cheese, mayo, mustard, black beans and pork belly) are almost all under $10. El Chucho's 40-seat, mostly covered roof deck is an ideal hideaway for sipping your homemade pineapple soda or margarita with house-made damiana liqueur, but tequila lovers should work their way through the 50-plus tequila list with the guidance of a bartender downstairs.
