El Chile Picante

1904 S. Main St. Santa Ana, CA 92707 | Santa Ana | 714-557-2514

Location Description:

El Chile Picante serves a great machaca, and the chilaquiles remain crispy even under a sea of green or red salsa. But you have to dig a bit through the menu and disregard its many misspellings (don't worry: The picadillo is not "miced meat" despite its English translation, but rather ground beef enlivened with mint) to find El Chile Picante's best entrées, regional Mexican cuisine with weird names such as chavilecas and enchiladas that act more like tacos.
