Get the big burrito. It is more than enough to share between two people. They even cut it in half for you if you tell them that you are sharing

Have been going to this restaurant since I can remember...never gets too old. The food is delicious, the service is great, and the prices, well even better! You all have to try the buffalo wings...I think they are WAY better than the other chain wing restaurants...simply delicious. But my favorite dish, Enchiladas Suizas...no beans, extra rice! Oh yes... The only... More

They always have a great service, even thought its a small building, and it takes a long time to get a seat when its crowded, its worth waiting for. when I am craving Camarones a la plancha con salsa Diabla, this is where I go.

I've been coming here for years. their food is very good, and there service extremely friendly. It is a bit noisy. especially during basketball season. It's a popular hangout for USC students. You do have to be prepared to wait though. they dont take reservations, and there is alway a long wait out the door to be seated, but once... More

Loved this place but it was in the ghetto. Parking is in the back and I wouldnt walk alone. It was hard to see from the street but once we fond it we were pleasantly suprised! The inside was cute and charming. The service was gerat and the chips kept coming. The salsa was amazing with a kick. The three... More

When I was living in the area for about five years, I was a frequent visitor at La Barca. When I would take people there, everyone would wonder why because the food, while good, is nothing spectacular. However, I raved about La Barca. And here's why: The interior of the restaurant is clean and well-decorated. It's clear that the owners... More

Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in L.A. This place is a local USC favorite, a bit out of the way for most people though, located just south of the 10 freeway on Vermont Ave (a few blocks north of the USC campus). Go there on Tuesday nights for $2.50 margaritas that are strong and taste pretty darn good. The... More

Good-looking menu, decent food, very popular local place, service needs some work... also needs a new bathroom or a real good cleaning!
