dinner on sunset

hi there, looking for pre-comedy show dinner options. thinking pinches tacos, but what else is out there? not XIV or anything like that. casual, fun, not trendy.

        No exactly Sunset...but I'll second Mexico y Barra...had a super fun, great dinner there this week...really tasty carnitas -- fatty, greasy AND crispy -- ole!

        Yatai is another thought..

        1. Also....an old reliable....Greenblatt's. It's good, solid deli fare, but what makes it interesting is the wine list. Jeff's got a terrific selection of wines by the glass....or you can buy a bottle from the adjoining store. (great selection. some prices are high, but he's got very good sales)
          And there's parking in the back.

          1. You want casual tacos near Sunset, eh? It's not *ON* sunset, but I think it's worth the 5 minute drive.

            The al pastor is fantastic. I also like their carne asada. The pollo is tasty, too. OK, everything's good.
