Santa Monica

1025 Wilshire Blvd,
Santa Monica, CA 90401

(310) 899-1106

It was 1997 and while we weren’t necessarily looking to open another restaurant, the market, location and building felt right. The space was designed by our good friend Roz Smith who called it her “finest accomplishment”. This location boasts a great bar for watching sports games and often times has extended happy hour to support that. Join us in SaMo!

Downtown Los Angeles

1037 S. Flower St,
Los Angeles, CA 90015

(213) 746-7750

For many years we had sought out a downtown Los Angeles location, but all that existed was in high-rise office buildings. Definitely not El Cholo. So when we were asked to take over a single story Mediterranean building, just a short block from Staples Center and LA Live, we jumped on it. It is adobe, with an old brick wall in a beautiful dining room with a patio to boot! Join us pre or post game or whenever you’re needing a feeling of home while in DTLA!

Anaheim Hills

8200 E. Santa Ana Canyon Rd.,,
Anaheim, CA 92808

(714) 769-6269

When opening new locations, the buildings seek us out rather than the other way around. The wonderful Mexican-style building in Anaheim Hills came to us in 2012-2013 it truly felt like a great El Cholo. This location has three of our musts: a fireplace, an aquarium and a patio.

Corona Del Mar

3520 E. Coast Highway,
Corona Del Mar, CA 92625

(949) 777-6137

Corona Del Mar is a small community and we always knew the opportunity to open a new restaurant here was rare. In 2015, we found out the Landmark Nightclub was wanting to sell so we jumped on it! After much needed renovations, the space became very warm and exciting and the Corona del Mar neighborhood welcomed us with open arms. Join us in CDM for El Cholo’s famous recipes, a large bar and outdoor patio and a large collection of our famous framed photos!

La Habra

840 E. Whittier Blvd,
La Habra, CA 90631

In 1962 this space started as an El Cholo take-out location. After a year the men’s store next door moved out and we expanded to include a dining room with seven redwood picnic tables. Originally a self-serve location, we began hiring servers and expanding. We’ve been in business ever since (almost 60 years!)
