Kay n Dave's is a favorite of ours in Culver City. They have outdoor patio seating, a vibrant bar area, and indoor seating. They do not take reservations so the wait is sometimes long. The salmon and spinach enchiladas are a favorite. The chips and salsa are very good as well. The food is more gourmet Mexican.

Have been eating at Kay and Dave's for over 20 years and loving it. DAve has had his ups and downs and starting in the Palisades I was always dissapointed in the Brentwood version. But the culver city cantina is fun, the food is great and the staff were very friendly.

Thank you fellow Trip Advisors! Because of your positive reviews we dined at Kay n' Dave's Cantina tonight and loved it! This is not your garden variety Mexican food. It is really different, with some quite unusual dishes. I would call it gourmet Mexican and everything our party of four ordered was just delicious. I especially liked the Pork Cochinita Pibil, with the meat roasted in a banana leaf. What flavor! It came with a delicious cactus salad and really tasty rice. I'm not a drinker, but I think anyone who enjoys margaritas will be happy -- lots of choices. The staff was incredibly nice, the atmosphere was casual and inviting -- the clientele was made up of people of all ages, including children. Only one possible drawback -- inside dining was very loud, but even on this busy evening, the staff moved us to the much quieter outdoor tables without blinking an eye. No question I will be returning to this restaurant!

We were visiting in LA area and took the advice of other TripAdvisor's and tried Kay 'n Dave's Cantina. We ordered the nights special, Chili Verde Relleno. It was very different than any Mexican food that we have had. The server told us that we might find it a bit "spicy" but we thought that would be OK. (We like it a bit spicy).
The chili Verde was very different than any we had ever had. The pork was larger steaks of pork with some strips of chili on top. A little green sauce but not like one would usually have with chili Verde. We found it to be unusual but delicious. Overall, the prices were a little higher than an ordinary Mexican restaurant but Kay 'n Dave's isn't ordinary.
The service was great, salsa was good, great atmosphere. A very nice evening.

One of the best places in Culver City. Fresh made food you must try. Quick and friendly service. Great Selection of flavored margaritas. Great lunch specials, just the right price for the right amount of food. You must try their Coconut Flan, ( you might want to ask the server if they would hold one for you, sometimes they may run out of it) .
