    This is a family owned restaurant, it’s lovely when the family stops by the table and says hello. The food is seasoned perfectly!

    This was our second visit to El Chingon Bisto and our second great meal. Their pozole is delicious and carries a serious kick (the way I like it). This is a great neighborhood gem.
