This dimly-lit Venice staple has been serving old-school Cali-Mexican dishes for well over 30 years. The dishes haven't changed a whole bunch since they opened, but you can watch them make tortillas in front of you and bottomless brunch is a real deal at $15 for an entree and bottomless mimosas. There will probably be live music whenever you go, just in case you're coming in to ward off a hangover.
