El Cholo Santa Monica
Family recipes and traditions have made this local chain an institution since 1923. Years printed beside each item show how the menu has evolved through the decades—from Joe's traditional albondigas in 1923 to the crabmeat enchilada in 1971 and the blue corn chicken enchiladas in 1986. For a true taste of history, go for the much-loved green corn tamale.
