Mexican food in or near West Hollywood?

Would like to eat Mexican food tonight, staying in West Hollywood. We don't want to drive too far and would need to be at a restaurant that does not require reservations. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  1. Does it have to be good Mexica food? There's El Coyote for a fun time, Marix, El Carmen (great tequila selection, very short menu for actual food), El Compadre, Gardens of Taxco. None of these have great food, but they're all fun and i don't think you would need a reservation. I'd choose El Coyote out of all of these.

    1. There's also Loteria in the Farmer's Market. I always enjoy the food there, and you can grab a couple cold ones too.

        Well we'd prefer if the food is good. We ate in Yamashiro last night so we'd like to have a better meal. What about Frida's?

          That's a good idea, especially when compared to all of the other places in WeHo.

            Yeah, if you're open to driving outside of West Hollywood, that would be a much better choice.

            Went to Frida last night actually -- it was very good, but not really authentic Mexican. If you're looking for a hole-in-the-wall check out Los Tacos. El Coyote is disgusting, you're way better off at El Compadre.
