Among the fast food and taco trucks lining Central Avenue is a historic landmark: The Dunbar Hotel. Starting in the 1920s, this swanky spot hosted jazz legends like Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Ray Charles, and more of the people who helped establish South LA as a cultural hub for the Black community. The building got a major facelift in 2018, and one of its most impressive upgrades was this fantastic Southern restaurant on the bottom floor. It’s got a long menu full of top-notch soul food and Mexican entrees–think short ribs and oxtails served alongside fish tacos and shrimp fajitas–available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
