    A dining patron from US tried it.

This place was the best Mexican burrito joint in downtown L.A. for about 20 years , from 1977 to about 1997. Before it even became a restaurant, they were serving up Cochinita Pibil for weddings and quinceaneras. This dish , or rather, this way of cooking pork is getting big in L.A., with many now claiming to have been the “first” to serve this delicious food. Its too bad Doc Magoo’s is now gone, the owner having passed away in 2005. Another interesting fact is that the restaurant owner met with some of the writers from the TV show, ER, and gave them permission to use the name of his place, which at the time was directly across the street from California Hospital. The name was actually Doc Magoo’s, not Doc Magoo, but the point is moot since the place only exists as a catering concern.
