You may recall our epic guide to the best Mexican restaurants in L.A. and, naturally, this spot made the cut. From the awesome ambiance to the beyond-delicious grub and ‘ritas (the Blood Orange Margarita in particular), we’re truly smitten by this Sherman Oaks eatery. Expect amazing lunch and dinner specials, and maybe even a celeb spotting (Gisele Bundchen, Rachel Bilson, and Dakota Fannning are fans). It’s also rumored that the Jolie-Pitt clan frequently dine here. Our menu picks include the lobster enchiladas, tostada chiquita salad, queso fundido, and the carna asada green burrito.
