The Mexican Village
Open since 1965, The Mexican Village is one of the most historic Mexican restaurants in LA—and also one of the most fun. Head to this massive spot on Beverly Blvd. (where Historic Filipinotown, Virgil Village, and Silver Lake converge) and get treated to a loud, raucous dining room filled with family gatherings, weekly karaoke, and a lot of margaritas. This is the kind of spot where everybody who walks in is a regular and greets the waitstaff not with a reservation name, but a hug and a kiss. You can’t go wrong with any of their big combo platters (the chile relleno is a particular standout), and for margaritas, we love the refreshing heat of the cucumber jalapeno.
