Happy Hour Scene: La Tapatia

We've always been fascinated, or alcoholically drawn, to the Lunch Happy Hour. The thought of downing a few cheap drinks before the work day is over holds great appeal to us.

La Tapatia, near Richmond and Dunlavy, is bigger inside than we expected. There are a couple large dining areas that flank the bar, and the mural -- a trompe d'oeil, we believe -- of a Mexican bull fighting ring is a nice touch.

The happy hour at La Tapatia, which runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., is a small menu but able. We had the frozen house margarita. It wasn't as strong as we'd like, but it was big, and at that price, who can really complain?

The bar also has a lengthy lunch menu until 3 p.m. We went with the standard cheese enchiladas that cost us $5.95.

The enchiladas were fairly average, but on this rainy Thursday afternoon, accompanied by a frozen margarita, they tasted perfect.

Drink Here? Not our favorite spot in town, but a solid spot to grab an afternoon drink.
