East LA


Reader Bskills4 sent this observation in yesterday. Did anyone else notice the same thing?

Hey, in case any of your readers are interested.. East La got rid of their happy hour and the place is dark!!


So word on the street is confidently indicating that East LA is being sold. Apparently the business wasn’t doing so well, and it was time to jump ship. Some readers are speculating that the shorter-than-usual bar hours might have had something to do with it.

New owners are reported to be The Farside.

No word at this time whether the venue, name or menu will change. No firm date as to when the business will change hands.

I just realized 411 never reviewed this place! Should I be happy?

the food was never very good here.
People go for the Very Strong Drinks..
Me included.
3 marnagrita’s (yes ,that’s how you will pronounce it after you have had a few…) and you are in loopy land.
If your draw is the booze, why close early?

I wish the Margaritas were $5 again. $8 is kind of steep.

411: you put yourself in enough danger reviewing the Taco Truck – do yourself (and your stomach) a solid and skip a visit to East LA. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

The reason they make their “marnagrita’s” (mcspacebar’s spelling) so strong is to distract from the awful food. I ordered a shredded beef taco entree there once and couldn’t identify what came to me on the plate. The extra alcohol is added to kill off the taste.

However, they get a great, fun rowdy crowd there, and that’s a good thing when going out.
