Check out their Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for classic breakfast dishes with a creative twist. Try the Breakfast Torta consisting of house-made chorizo and scrambled eggs topped with refried beans, avocado, queso fresco, red onion, and a side of papas fritas. Their regular dinner menu also offers a collection of ceviche, empanadas, and grilled meat dishes.

Yelpers love Ruta Del Vino’s affordable happy hour, which serves up a $5 Cocktail of the Day along with discounted wine by the glass and appetizers. Enjoy masa fries, fish tacos, oysters, and smoke octopus while sitting at their rustic, wooden bar.
