This is the most wonderful place for fresh ingredients and imaginative Mexican fare. The fish tacos are my favorite. There is often a line outside, but it's definitely worth the wait. The owner presides and waits on tables. Great value, and they recently started accepting credit cards!

okay, we live pretty close (1-1/2 miles away), so there's the convenience factor, but, having said that, it is worth a detour. the fish tacos at alegria are hard to beat; actually, the whole menu contains some interesting choices. there's no alcohol license, but the fruit drinks (especially, the basil-mint lemonade) is refreshing - you won't miss not having a margarita with your meal.

This authentic mexican restaurant is made for foodies. Fresh and pure California! I am from the deep south and when I moved out here recently, I couldn't wait to try this type of food at this type of place. Every time I eat here, I am expecting Guy Fieiri to walk in here filming an episode of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. It is THAT good. The tacos and guacamole are among the best I ever had. The wonderful juice concoctions are also worthy of a taste. The staff is friendly and it has definitely become a must have for locals of the hip Silverlake/Los Feliz area. What are you waiting for...get over there!

A cozy neighborhood restaurant. Guacamole starter was freshly made with home-made chips. The mahi-mahi fish enchiladas were delicious, dressed with a freshly made Veracruz sauce. The Budin Alegria was a sort of cross between chilaquiles and lasagna, tasty and very original. Resonably priced for well-prepared home-style cooking. Good friendly service too. Note: BYO if you want beer/wine. They are unlicensed.
