fun mexican on the westside for a group

i know there are tons of mexican places on the westside that are fun, we are looking for one that is good for a group of about 15 that enjoys drinking. We are considering La Serenata on Pico but are open to suggestions for somewhere that might have better food and a touch more atmosphere...

    1. How about Border Grill in Santa Monica?

      1. lares on pico is good food and fun. sit upstairs though...downstairs is too hot and upstairs has live music.

        there is a place on centinella near culver that is a lot of fun. great 10 piece mariachi band, free guac, and chips. only problem is the food is bad and expensive. drinks are great and service is friendly though.

              Try the new Casa Sanchez on Centinela - it's big, noisy with good food, drink and mariachis.

                don antonios is fun..except the stupid hill filmed there and now all the hollywood rejects go there and the line is out the door.

                casa sanchez is fun...but eat before you get there. food is weak big time.
