Fodor's Review

It's the place to see mariachi musicians and dance to Latin tunes—all at a price that locals can afford (and it's geared to them, not so much to foreign tourists). The schedule changes frequently, but on a typical night you'll hear mariachis at 11 pm followed by a comedian (in Spanish, of course). A ranchera group then takes over, and couples dance until the wee hours. There is no live entertainment Sunday or Monday. The cover is under $5 most nights; sometimes there's a minimum consumption of around $7.
