I'm on a mission to find the best Mexican eatery in the Valley--especially places that serve carnitas. Not the El Torito-type restaurants, but restaurants that are authentic, such as the $2.00 taco stands open till early hours of the morning.
Some of my favorites are:
-Los Fuentes (sp?) off Reseda
-Los Toros (best sitdown restaurant I've been to in awhile) in Chatsworth
-Socorro on Victory
