Eclectic, Fun, but Authentic, El Chingon is a “Bad Ass” Mexican Restaurant & Bar Revolution in San Diego’s Historic Gaslamp Quarter. We feature Mexican classics, like tacos and burritos, additional “bad ass” options, such as corn wheels covered in flaming hot cheetos and Bad Ass Fries. We also focus on quality tequila cocktails.
Inspired by Pancho Villa and the pistoleros of the Mexican Revolution, El Chingon is a new concept in the San Diego Gaslamp. With an exciting menu featuring some Mexican classics, we will serve only the best of the best when it comes to ingredients and spirits.
Nothing makes great Mexican food better than a little something to quench your thirst! Aside from our curated selection of tequilas, mezcales & sotoles, we’ve carefully crafted a drink menu that will pair perfectly with any menu item or stand boldly alone.
