This little gem is located in the gritty El Raval neighborhood and is a favorite among the local in-crowd who gather at the bar for micheladas and nachos on a Friday night. More of a bar than a restaurant, there is very limited seating space and you need to be willing to share your table when you do get one. But the atmosphere at El Pachuco is matched by the quality and authenticity of the food. Less of a Mexican restaurant, more of a really hip eaterie that serves excellent Mexican food and drink, there’s not a sombrero in sight at El Pachuco (thankfully). Don’t be put off by the crowd if you arrive on a busy night, hold your ground and order a drink, it will be well worth the wait.
