Casa Vega

13301 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Located on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks, Casa Vega is easily one of LA’s most recognizable Mexican restaurants and perhaps your best chance at spotting your landlord and a Kardashian eating one booth apart from one another. This 60-year-old operation is one of those magical LA places where A-list celebrities and regular locals co-mingle without much fanfare. The margaritas are deadly and that lobster quesadilla is a must-order. They don’t take reservations though, so get there early or prepare to wait.
