PostPosted: Thu Aug 07, 2008 6:07 pm    Post subject: Best Mexican Food

Hands down, my favorite place is La Cabanita in Montrose, which is always worth the drive (I'm in the west SF Valley) but I can't seem to find any place that is closer (for the times I don't feel like making the drive) that even comes close to La Cabanita.

Dying to know where LG'ers go for great Mexican food.

Also, I think there's a thread on this already.

I live like less than 5 minutes from this place.

I've always wanted to go try their food.

I think I'm going there in a few weeks.

Where is Taco Mesa?

And sorry if this is a duplicate post, but I scanned all of the other Best of's and the closest thing I saw was Best Burrito. I'm looking for a good place with a variety of great dishes and a good margarita on top of that.

I have... good food & good prices. Not as good IMO as La Cabanita and seating (you order at the counter and seat yourself) can be hard to come by depending on what time you go.

I wouldn't call it the best by any means, but I sure do miss SuperMex since I moved to Oregon.

Here are the best taco spots in LA. Period.

1. El Taurino on Olypic and Hoover (Best Al Pastor in town)
2. Taciza on Figueroa (Close to usc, south of pico - Best Asada in Town)
3. El Tepeyac in Boyle Heights (Try The Kiko's Special, best enchiladas in town.)

I dare anyone to go to these places and not be disappointed to have to go to taco bell or most other taco spots.

What's funny is that I go to SuperMex at least once a week.
