The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - RESTAURANT REVIEW -

A leg­endary spot on Canyon Road that dates back to the early 1960s, El Farol has a dis­tinc­tive front pa­tio, a fa­mous bar, and a ram­bling, close-quar­ters in­te­rior that opens onto a roomy pa­tio out back. It’s a ram­shackle sort of place, but don’t be fooled: You can spend a lot here on lunch and din­ner. Un­for­tu­nately, the qual­ity of what you get doesn’t al­ways match the prices. Rec­om­mended: agua­cate and chur­ros con cho­co­late.

Rat­ings range from 1 to 5 chiles, in­clud­ing half chiles. This re­flects the re­viewer’s ex­pe­ri­ence with re­gard to food and drink, at­mos­phere, ser­vice, and value. 5 = flaw­less 4-1/2 = ex­tra­or­di­nary 4 = ex­cel­lent 3-1/2 = very good 3 = good 2-1/2 = av­er­age 2 = fair

1-1/2 = ques­tion­able 1 = poor
