LA Weekly's Description

El Carmen's selection is that of most Mexican eateries: nachos, combination
plates, quesadillas and flan. What they are really known for at this
red-lit, tunnel-like restaurant is the bar, where a wide range of tequilas
star on a vast and popular drinks menu.

    Good date spot. Mexican food and good drinks. -Francine, The Real L Word

    3rd Street gem with the best ass-kicking tequila selection in town and an explosive Spicy Margarita. Brought to you by THE EXPENDABLES opening August 13!

    Love the Jalepeno Margs. Just watched a girl send one back and tell the waitress that it was "just too spicy" so warning-- don't try unless you are a bad asss...
