The best things to eat at this retro, dark, old school Mexican restaurant are the jicama salad and guacamole. Simple, unfussy delicious flavours. I can't speak much for the rest. Instead, look out for the pop up street food stalls in Venice. Best cheap Mexican...More

Stopped in for a late night snack. La cabaña is open until 3. Typical old school Mexican restaurant menu until you come across the Chile rellenos. Great flavor, no batter. Service is efficient and friendly.

Definitely get the guacamole. They make it in front of you at the table. One of the best I ever had! Huge portions on the entrée. We had leftovers which we took home. The salsa was a bit too spicy for me and I asked...More

The food was great, it's generously served. The salsa sauce was spicy but not too much. Service was fast and good. For two (with one soft drink and one margharita) : 50$ which is very reasonnable.

This restaurant has been here for many, many years. The atmosphere is cute inside, there is a woman making tortillas by hand which are excellent and they have a huge menu. I don't find the food to be anything fantastic, just ordinary, and a bit...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
