Fodor's Review

Wildly popular and wildly good, El Tiempo on Washington (there are other locations on Richmond and Montrose) is the go-to Mexican restaurant for socialites, families, singles (check out the swinging bar scene), and serious eaters. The place gets raves for its margaritas, fajitas, guacamole, green sauce, and the whopping, table-filling mixed grill, with beef and chicken fajitas, jumbo shrimp, quail, baby-back ribs, carnitas (spicy roasted pork), and jalapeño sausage. You're likely to leave happy, bloated, and smelling like Mexican food. It's open for breakfast on weekends.
