More personality than the usual CitySearch reviews — this site focuses on Southern California restaurants and gives props to specific menu items, servers, and even allows owners to respond to flames.
Benito’s Taco Shop
Several locations in LA
1544 S. La Cienega Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90035
Open 24 hours, awkwardly-shaped parking lot, cash only.
I was visiting my buddy Matt down on So-cal and had a hankering for some legit Mexican food, close by his pad. The “close by” factor led us to Benito’s for lunch.
Although there was a huge “B” placard in the window, we ventured forth. (In case you don’t know about the restaurant ratings, click here).
