North Hollywood has a solid crop of old-school Mexican restaurants where large groups can eat enchilada platters and drink margaritas all night. Muchos Mas is our favorite. The space itself is massive with a huge side patio and an interior that looks like the main square of a colonial mountain town. Is it cheesy? Of course it is. But the food is good, the atmosphere is always a party, and their margaritas are $3.25 during weekday lunch.
