Mercado is the entirely mediocre (but very popular Mexican spot) along 3rd St. in Beverly Grove. Nothing’s going to completely offend you here, but you’ll definitely spend a lot more on tacos here than you budgeted for. This is where you go when your friend from Florida is in town and mentions she wants great Mexican food, but you know that means just guacamole and margaritas.
