It's always happy hour when you consult your Spirit Guide. Your best friend for bar-hopping lets you in on the drink and food specials, tells you where the music is (and isn't) and helps you find the perfect spot. A great night out starts with Spirit Guide.
Good luck finding this place for the first time. El Modelo is tucked away on an industrial stretch of Second Street that seems an unlikely location for such a well-patronized joint. Not a sit-down restaurant, this is a production facility that does a brisk takeout business. The patio tables in the grass bordering the parking lot don’t offer a good view, but most folks don’t seem to want to wait any longer than they have to before tearing into their lunches. We suggest you swing by, pick up a six pack of El Modelo beer and take your El Modelo tamales back to the casa for a lunch that’s muy sabroso. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)
