I've never had amazing fajitas. Can anyone recommend a location to remedy that?

    If you don't mind hanging with the boys, go to Marix in West Hollywood. To this Texas boy's taste buds, they don't get much better in Los Angeles.

      A little off the beaten path, there is a place on Telegraph Rd in Whittier/Santa Fe Springs called El Camino. Most of the food is nothing special -- pretty typical Americanized mexican food. The chicken fajitas with beans, rice, and fresh corn tortillas, though, are outstanding.

        Try the molcajetes at La Parilla. Original location in East LA is best.

          FLAME ON!

          I really like the fajitas at Acapulco.

          NOTE: ONLY at the Atwater location on Glendale Blvd. ! ! !

          I have tried other locations and the deserve the thrashing they get.

              Antonio's on Melrose has the best steak fajitas (and the best tasting veggies in the fajita too).

                  Its more of an Americanized Mexican place than authentic, but my favorite would have to be at Cozymel's in Manhattan Beach.

                  2171 Rosecrans Ave, El Segundo, CA 90245

                    Aren't fajitas an "American" dish by default? Like kung pow chicken or General Tsao's Chicken.. They have origins in their native country but are bigger in the states.

                    Anyways, agree about Cozymel's. Everything else there sucks, but all their fajita ingredients are fresh and flavorful.
