Demand for Tex-Mex in LA continues to increase, with queso stalwarts like Homestate opening new locations across town and Josef Centeno opening Amacita in Culver City. Last weekend, the Valley-based restaurant El Tejano made the jump on So-Cal’s fast-moving Tex-Mex train and opened a new location in Downtown’s shuttered Wangs Tavern, with yet another location headed to West Hollywood in the former Inkwell space.
El Tejano Downtown opened over the weekend, and La Cienega’s opening is imminent with new signage and a fresh paint job. El Tejano first opened in North Hollywood in 2016 with a sweet Austin-style patio, with a second Woodland Hills location slightly over a year ago.
The entire feel is all-day Tex-Mex, plus El Tejano DTLA has an abundance of TVs just in time for fall sports. Downtown’s outdoor patio keeps brightly-colored seating, more TVs, and sits just a block away from the busy Whole Foods. El Tejano is running a limited menu right now with appetizers, burritos, tacos, and taco salads until next week.
El Tejano DTLA’s hours are Monday through Saturday from 3 p.m. until 2 a.m. They’ll catch every football game as well, opening at 9 a.m. on Sundays.
