When you see a table of ten burly construction workers at a restaurant all ordering the same thing for lunch, you can probably guess the house specialty. At Carnes Asada Pancho Lopez, an always-busy Jalisco-style restaurant in Lincoln Heights, it's carne en su sugo. This smoky and savory tomatillo stew is loaded with tender beans, bacon, and chopped carne asada, and might be the best thing ever to eat on a rainy day. From the clay mugs for agua frescas to the beer bottles filled with salsa, Pancho Lopez goes all in on the Guadalajara ambiance. You already know the must-order here, but we also love their juicy torta ahogada, barbacoa tacos, and roasted bone marrow plate.
