Highland Park’s El Huarache Azteca seeking beer and wine license

Huarache Azteca Highland Park

Storefront ReportHIGHLAND PARK — Long-time York Boulevard restaurant El Huarache Azteca has won praise for its barbacoa, sopes and, of course, huaraches. But how about some beer and wine to wash down your favorite antojito?  That could be an option if the owner of El Huarache win permission to serve beer and wine, according to the Planning Department.

A public hearing has been scheduled for May 24 to consider granting a conditional use permit that would allow El Huarache to serve alcohol for consumption at the restaurant, which seats 67 inside and in two patios. The proposed hours of operation under the permit would be from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily for the restaurant and 11:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. Friday through Sunday for the takeout window.

El Huarache applied for the beer and wine license a few months after it remodeled the interior with a modern, new look.

  1. Count Boozebag

    Takeout booze until 4:00am on the weekends? My dark prayers have been answered.

  2. Too bad they have painfully slow service, I love the food and will gladly support them, but after their remodel they took out the amazing salsa bar. No more salsa de molcajete or condiments at your liking. The young man at the register seems kind, but provides inconsistent service. They need additional kitchen staff because as it is, service is very slow 🙁

  3. Now I can wait forever for my beer while I’m waiting forever for my food.

  4. Too small restaurant, too slow to serve you. The food is great though. This is a Mexican Luncheria. They should have a bigger local rather than sell beer. There are enough bars on York. I rather a better service than a beer.

    Wouldn’t selling beer and wine will inject a bunch more money into this business which would allow them to increase quality of products and services?
