Reviewing This Hermosa Beach Bar’s Food & Drink Specials And Singles Scene
Taco Tuesday is part of the culture in Southern California beach communities and it’s particularly popular in the South Bay Beach Cities.
Several bar/restaurants have specials on tacos and drinks this day of the week, and one of the best bargains is American Junkie at the Hermosa Beach Pier.
Here’s the deal and here’s a review.
The Taco & Drink Specials
Each Tuesday, American Junkie has all-you-can-eat tacos all night for $5. There’s no gimmick here; it lines up trays of chicken, carne and beef, along with rice and beans, plus lettuce, cheese and chips and salsa.
You can go back as often as you like and your stomach will allow during the evening. To pay, get a wristband from a bartender or waitress and have at it.
As far as drink specials, there are $5 margaritas. And if you get there before 7, you can take advantage of the Happy Hour, which has $3 beers (all its beers, it must be pointed out) and well drinks.
The Tacos & Margaritas Taste Review
Aside from the fact you can’t really go wrong with $5 all-you-can-eat tacos, they taste quite good.
The meats are seasoned, juicy and the tortillas are regular sized (not those tiny “street tacos”) so you’ll be satisfied after about four of them.
You’re not going to walk away saying “well, they were okay.” You’ll say “those are pretty good; I’m going back again.”
But pass on the margaritas. They taste as if they are made with that pre-manufactured mix, although a waitress told PubClub.com that is not the case. Well it tastes like the mix, which means the house $5 margarita is not very good.
So stick with the beer or get a fresh-made margarita.
The Singles Scene
It’s tough to find a seat, but most people are in there to eat tacos and not necessarily to socialize. This doesn’t mean it cannot or does not happen, it’s just that people are in thee primarily to eat and go home, not make an event out of it.
If you do want that singles scene, then go next door to Sharkeez or up to OB’s in Manhattan Beach, which IS a social scene.
