Westword's Description

El Olvido calls itself a Jaliscan eatery, and while that's a stretch -- the menu lacks posole, birria and torta ahogada, three famous Jaliscan dishes -- its carne en su jugo ("meat in its juices") is the real thing. The rest of the menu is devoted not to the green-chile-smothered burritos so common at this town's Mexican restaurants (and nonexistent in Mexico), but the enchiladas suizas popular in Acapulco, seafood dishes imported from the Mexican coast, and Mexico City tacos. The recipes come from owner Jorge Pingarron's family members, who lived all over Mexico -- though he split his time between Acapulco and Mexico City when he was growing up. As a result, sitting in the sun on the patio at this restaurant and listening to salsa or classic rock or other Latin American tunes while drinking a big marg makes you feel like you could almost be on a beach in San Diego -- or at the better part of a not-so-good resort town in Mexico.
