You know the place, with the brown striped awning on San Vicente at Hauser across from Baskin-Robbins. The Chulada Grill has everything required of a good Mexican restaurant with almost 100 tasty and reasonably priced items on the menu and good parking for fast in and out take-away.
For dining in, it’s a comfortable, inviting environment – casual but clean and attractive without all the kitschy Mexican decorations of so many local places. The serene environment with trim white tablecloths makes me want to hang out regularly or have a warm, intimate dining experience with a large group of friends. Plus it’s one of the few authentically Oaxacan (southern Mexico) places west of Western Avenue, with several excellent mole dishes. Hard and soft shell tacos, burritos, tortas, quesadillas, salads, enchiladas, soups, combination plates, wraps, even hamburgers. Beer, wine, margaritas. I took a friend who’s sick of heavy Mexican food and he was delighted with the light, healthy food choices, like fish tacos. Truly something for all tastes. Why look any further when everything you need is right there under your nose on San Vicente? Terrific food, wide choice and a comfortable tone. Good prices.
