Looking for a specific type of Mexican experience east of Hollywood...

Hegenbarth | Feb 18, 2013 07:08 PM

I'm a huge fan of the atmosphere, service, and margaritas of the standard LA Mexican-American family restaurant--places like Barragan's, El Compadre, El Conquistador, etc. I'm talking about the standard menu of enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, with a few house specials and then some meat and seafood plates. The problem is that the aforementioned places tend to have mediocre food--at best. I'm wondering if there's a restaurant across the river that holds itself to a higher culinary standard while still maintaining the booths, chips & salsa, and margaritas vibe--or maybe even something in the neighborhoods just west of the river that I may have missed.
