First opened in Juarez, Mexico, in 1990, El 33 allows diners to enjoy a fiesta of flavor with the aid of authentic Mexican cuisine and sates hungry ears with live mariachi music on weekends. A straightforward yet scrumptious menu of Mexican favorites invites guests to customize meals to their liking with a selection of seven meats, including carne asada, chicken fajita, and pork adobada. Celebrate the versatility of corn or flour tortillas with an order of tacos before sending one out in the mail as a postcard ($7.50), or enjoy a serving of Gringas—quesadillas grilled by a professional food interrogator ($7.95). Soak in the scenes on the expansive outdoor patio with a glass of horchata ($2.75) or cap off a meal with flan ($3.25).
