El Marinero Opens Off McCullough with Ceviches, Seafood Towers and More


  • Jessica Elizarraras

After more than a year of will-they-won't-they open tension, El Marinero is finally open at 1819 McCullough Ave. 

Owned by the same folks behind Taqueria Chapala Jalisco, El Marinero is taking the spot formerly occupied by its sister restaurant inside a shuttered Pizza Hut. The interiors are, of course, decked out with seascapes both above and under the sea (pun intended), and the space is still relatively small.  The menu comes bearing a slew of dishes reminiscent of other Mexican seafood joints, that came before it such as El Bucanero, Camaron Pelado and Las Islas Marias. 

El Marinero opens 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. 

1819 McCullough Ave., (210) 465-9178.
