I scrolled down and read how everyone loves El Cholo in LA yet I'm in the Valley and dont want to drive over there. I've gone as for as driving to Sun Valley area to that spot, Gourmet Tamales which wins each year at various festivals and I wasn't impressed at all. Seems like I have to drive to Mexico for good Mexican food since apart from the small taco stands I haven't found anything that spectacular. I've been to Casa Vega, Tony's Mexican Grill, and others, no luck. My favorite right now is in Chatsworth on Topanga Cyn Blvd. near next to a Denny's it has an orange awning and is a small what you might call dive spot yet the food is amazing they have an A rating and always packed.
