I'm looking for recommendations for a Mexican restaurant in East LA (preferably Boyle Heights) or downtown that will be open around 5:00pm on a Sunday night. Has to be sit-down, but doesn't have to be fancy. I'd love to hear about places that specialize in specific regions or types of food, but we'll be with a vegetarian. So somewhere that only serves awesome birria wouldn't be such a great choice this time.
I'm also intersted in somewhere new to me so that excludes La Serenata di Garabaldi, La Parilla, Ciro's and El Tepeyac. I think that Babita or Teresita's are too far away given our time constraints and I've been to both anyway. I'm not interested in somewhere like Malo or Ciudad or anything along those lines.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
