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.

Suggested by our writers
Mercado isn’t the best Mexican you’ll ever eat. But it's right downtown Santa Monica and after a day of misery at the pier, you simply don't care.
The Santa Monica location doesn’t have the magic of the original Ktown location, but El Cholo is still fun and serving solid old-school Mexican food.
