Eddie Cervantes, the man behind Primo's, recently opened E Bar (1901 N. Haskell Ave.). The new Tex-Mex restaurant and bar, located on one-way Haskell just past Dolly Python, has been open for nearly three weeks now but is still undergoing minor construction (the front sign and curtains are on their way, and Cervantes is installing flat screen televisions on the patio later this week).
Inside, rows of wooden tables and chairs run parallel to the bar, which spans the length of the entire restaurant, giving it a diner-like feel. The space is small, but doesn't feel crammed.
The bar has already acquired neighborhood regulars, who frequent the happy hours that run Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. and feature $1 off drinks.
The menu offers Tex-Mex staples like chicken and beef enchiladas and a variety of tacos, as well as everything from carne asada to a selection of sandwiches. There's also a variety of breakfast items that can be ordered all day.
