It’s difficult to find something you don’t like about La Cabana. Sure, it might not be the most inventive Mexican food in town, but you’re not at this 50-year-old Venice landmark for a thoughtful take on a sopa. You’re here for that La Casa quesadilla and the culinary monstrosity that is the El Verde burrito. They have a fantastic back patio, $30 margarita pitchers, and sometimes the mariachi band plays on the roof. Oh, and it’s open till 3am nightly.
