The food at El Centro won’t blow your mind - it’s simple Mexican food, and that’s fine. This spot is more about having a good time than eating food you’ll tell your grandkids about. For birthdays, group dinners, or Friday nights, the guacamole, enchiladas, margaritas, and rooftop to enjoy them all on will get the job done.
