As seen in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, this Mexican food institution in Sherman Oaks is serving both lunch and dinner dineL.A. menus this fall. If you haven’t tried their homestyle Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes, which this family-run restaurant has served since the ‘50s, you’re honestly missing out. At lunch, a $25 two-course meal includes a combination plate, vegetarian burrito or a trio of chicken or carne asada tacos, as well as churros or flan for dessert. Their $35 dinner menu ups the ante with a soup or tostada starter and added house margarita.
With a slight delay from its usual early September slot, the second 2021 edition of dineL.A. is back. Well over 200 restaurants are set to participate in this fall’s restaurant week, which runs from October 1 through 15. Scattered among the prix fixe tradition’s dizzying full list of menus are some of L.A.’s best restaurants offering their signature fare at a more budget-friendly price point.
With fixed-price, multi-course meals starting at $15 during lunch and dinner, even the most cost-conscious diner is bound to find a suitable nearby dineL.A. deal on their site. Not in the mood to hunt? We scoured the lineup for the best and most exciting deals, from plant-based local favorites to a splurge-worthy tasting menu from Citrin, the more casual counterpart to the newly two Michelin-starred Mélisse.
