I grew up in Los Angeles and, in my young adult years, on food from Tacos Por Favor. As a result, it's really hard to please me with Mexican food. This is authentic, fresh, healthy, and delicious. If you're watching your pennies, you can easily fill up (and almost make two meals) out of a huge veggie burrito or a... More

I visit this place at least once per week, either for a breakfast burrito or the shrimp burrito. Food is always great and service is always fast. Highly recommend the salsa verde. I haven't tried much else, but none of the friends who I've taken have ever complained.

Came here on a Wednesday night. Ordered the ceviche & a fish taco. The fish taco was good--not the best I've ever had, but solid nonetheless. The ceviche, however, was truly excellent--served in a super-tsty tomato & citrus sauce and topped w/ avocado. Worth a visit if you want good "hole in the wall" Mexican.

We go here at least once a month. The carne asada burrito keeps calling to me - it's so good. My husband gets tacos and I always sneak a bite. Great salsa bar. The outside looks sketchy, but it's the food you are going for. Sometimes the counter staff doesn't want to deal with you, but I know they are... More

We had high hopes of some great authentic Mexican fare, but we ended up a bit disappointed. The menu is enormous, so we sampled a few different kinds of tacos and burritos. The food itself was fine, but not memorable. Probably would not return.

Either of the Tacos Por Favor locations are awesome, tho this one is a little crowded. BEST hard shell tacos in town. Great tortas. Great weekend menudo. Yummy anchiote salsa. A little under $10 for most meals. The line is out the door at both locations every day at lunch, so they must be doing something right.

Really delicious and healthful (if you can believe it!) mexican food. Love the tacos de papa, sopes and breakfast is really good here. One word of caution - if you don't eat meat, be careful at breakfast. Ordered a veggie breakfast burrito and the eggs were clearly cooked in sausage or bacon fat. I had to throw it out it... More

I love this place. The line of people to get into this place is evidence enough that the food is great. The decor is rough but the food more than makes up for it. So if you want great food and less atmosphere then this is the place for you.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
