MB has always had a solid offering of low-key Mexican joints, but for us, nothing beats El Sombrero. Only a five minute walk from the beach, this 40-year-old staple has cheap prices, a nice little dining room, and the kind of old-school Cali/Mexican food you want after throwing your body against waves all afternoon. We’re talking enchiladas, chile rellenos, and all the burritos your surfer soul can handle.
