El Bucanero

San Antonio
Mexican Restaurant
$$$$

El Bucanero serves up Sinaloa-style Mexican food and a lively atmosphere. The menu is seafood focused and most dishes are interpretations by LA native Cesar Cervantes, the wunderkind chef-owner who runs El Buc with his family. Everything is auténtico; no tourists ever find this place, so there’s no need to water anything down, which is greatly appreciated by the locals who come in droves to have a good time.
