Dommy! and Russkar are right. The chicken Hollenbeck burrito and the chicken taquitos at El Tepeyac Cafe (812 N Evergreen Ave, (323) 267-8668)are excellent. Tried them this evening, and both dishes are great. Taquitos are huge, fresh, filled with white meat chicken, not at all greasy, and served with a generous pile of guacamole. The combo plate (two taquitos, guacamole, rice, beans and salad) was about eight bucks. The chicken Hollenbeck is also gigantic, filled with stewed white meat chicken and peppers, rice, beans, and a bit of guacamole. Moist and delicious, at six dollars and change. Plus, the vibe here is somehow very homey. Sat at the counter (which we love) and had a friendly and satisfying meal.

So, is it possible to eat lunch here during the week at anything close to lunch time, or is it too jammed? (Russkar tells me they resort to eating taquitos at 9 or 10 in the morning in order to beat the lines!)
