Right in Santa Ana’s Arts District, this cozy, Mexico City-inspired gastropub is perfect for a first date (or second, or third... ). It’s got an intimate vibe, an outdoor patio, and a menu of highly shareable Mexican bites—like Pork Confit Carnitas and Sous-Vide Octopus—and stiff cocktails to boot. Also not to miss: the Bacon-Wrapped Dates stuffed with Danish blue cheese. Enjoy specials like a Modelo and a shot of tequila for $10 on Taco Tuesdays. Perfect for a relaxed night out, this place has been around since 2008 so it’s clearly doing something right.
How to book: Walk-ins welcome.
