20rmb beers, shots, and tacos, is a deal that Yongkang Lu wouldn't have been caught dead with a year ago. But now that it is dead, El Luchito is offering exactly that.

The Deal: On Tuesdays from 3-10.30pm, get Coronas, tequila shots, and tacos for 20rmb.


El Luchito is a lot smaller than its older brother El Luchador, down the street, which closed shortly after the YKL shutdown. Located in Sliders' former spot, it's got around 20 seats, and although YKL is not what it once was, they get filled up quickly on a Tuesday night.

Most people have a Corona in their hand and some have ordered tacos. There's three to choose from -- chorizo, arrachera, and chicken. If you're a vegetarian, you can get get a veggie taco instead that is alright. All of them are just alright, with the chorizo being the best of the bunch. Nothing to write home about. Basically what you'd expect for 20rmb.

The best part of the deal is the alcohol. 20rmb Coronas and Jose Cuervo tequila shots. A thrifty alcoholic's bastion of good value. It's just too bad that it's a Tuesday. And it's too bad that there are little options nearby for your next destination. Still, it's a decent option for a couple drinks or a quick bite with friends on a Tuesday.
