Elmyr Restaurant & Cantina
The abandoned building aesthetic is something that could really only thrive in Little Five, which is why this Mexican-food-serving dive bar remains a near-three-decades-old neighborhood fixture. The walls are plastered with graffiti and vinyl decals. Usual Tex-Mex fare like tacos, quesadillas, and burritos are all decent enough, but what we normally do at Elmyr is drink. Get a jalapeño margarita or a Grizz (a Coronita topped with a tequila shot) and utilize the food when sobering up becomes necessary. The laid-back vibes even when the place is packed make it one of our favorite watering holes.
