Mariachi anyone?  Located in the heart of Olvera Street.   They don’t have a website but do have FB page.

As you enjoy too many baskets of chips and salsa while you wait for your menu of some of the best Mexican food Olvera Street has to offer you may just get your feet tapping to the roving Mariachi music that fills this restaurant. All while you sit back and sip one of their many fine cocktails in one of L.A.’s oldest brick building circa 1855.

I have come to this area for many years, and La Golondrina is the place my cousins and I meet for lunch and sit for hours enjoying the music, ambiance, fantastic food, and people watching all backed by the glorious colors only Olvera Street can provide.  After you each go and walk Olvera Street and take yourself on a little vacation and pretend you are on a side street in Mexico Cities tourist district.

The place for a touch of Mexico right here in Los Angeles.  Olvera Street is the go-to-market street for culture, good food and entertainment.   Created in the 1930s to help preserve Los Angeles Mexican community and history, Olvera Street gets visitors from all over the world.   If you want to have a great meal and pick up some gifts for someone, or yourself, you can’t go wrong with this traditional Los Angeles iconic place, and it is Subway and Train accessible.  Union Station is located directly across the street

Be sure to check their calendar for events.  When the events are happening Olvera Street is a site you don’t want to miss.
