El Tejano

El Tejano opened in the former Wangs Tavern space on Grand Avenue last week. The space has ample televisions and seating for the football crowd, as well as a a bar and outdoor patio.

The tex-mex restaurant El Tejano has made the jump from the Valley to Downtown Los Angeles, just in time for the start of the NFL season.

Replacing the now-shuttered Wangs Tavern on Grand Avenue, El Tejano held a soft opening on Thursday, Sept. 5; the same day as the start of the NFL season. The space expanded hours the next week for the first Monday Night Football game of the year.
