This East End spot is a dried beef factory first and foremost, with a tiny wisp of a restaurant attached. Despite what you'd think, though, both the food and the service are outstanding. Los Corrales is most popular at breakfast, when people crowd in to get machacado con huevo - made with its signature product or breakfast tacos made with its own fresh tortillas. At lunch, you can find old Tex-Mex classics like entomatadas and aporreado.
