Opened in 2003 by Steven Camarillo and Lori Erlitz, co-owner of nearby Pour House, this inexpensive restaurant by the BQE has a hip yet all-embracing feel. Its prefab decor of fake brick and stone-face walls—remnants of its former incarnations as a coffee shop, five-and-dime and, according to local legend, funeral parlor—is embellished with tin ornaments, Lotería cards and a glowing tank of exotic fish. Hearty entrées on the Mexican/Southwestern menu include fish tacos, which hold a flavorful, battered filet of sole with ripe fixings, beans and yellow rice plus tartar sauce by request; and Yoli's enchiladas, topped with a mild green tomatillo sauce, and best enjoyed with tender chicken rather than too-tough steak. Brunch draws an amiable crowd for crunchy French toast and delicious "Cele"citos—crispy corncakes with eggs, jack cheese and skin-on home fries. Service is reliably lackadaisical, but always friendly.Extra
