El Chile is one of the restaurants that we always use as a fallback for when we can’t think of anywhere else to go, and then just end up giving in and eating here instead. They have a big patio, serve great cocktails, and all of the food - from tacos to the chicken mole - are consistently good. Eating here isn’t going to blow your mind, but you’ll definitely be back the next time your friends ask where you want to grab dinner after work, and you don’t feel like putting much effort into the decision.
