A spiffy suburban outpost of this combo-plate chain that started in L.A. in 1923. Many dishes are listed with their year of origin. One of the best dates from the birth of the restaurant: the Sonora-style enchilada topped with olives and a fried egg. Green corn tamales (available seasonally) have achieved cult status. Full bar.
