But there is one thing that El Cholo® is especially known for and that is our famous El Cholo® MargaritasEl Cholo® pioneered the now renown Cuervo 1800 into their secret El Cholo® Margarita Recipe and it has become a "must taste” for visitors to Southern California.El Cholo Pineapple El Cholo is offering a very special tequila tasting for Pasadena Restaurant Week.
