12. Tacolicious( Genaro Molina / Los Angeles Times )
The sign inside the door tells the story: taco+Tecate+tequila = $10.
Or, put another way: cheap food and lots of booze. As a matter of fact, the restaurant/bar serves more than 100 kinds of tequila ($8-$30 a shot). So this isn't the place for the kids or Grandma. But if you're seeking a young, lively crowd, this might be your place. The food is inventive, and fellow diners are fun, which probably has something to do with all that tequila and beer.
The tacos come in a wild variety of flavors: squash-corn-chard, rock cod, tortilla-crusted fried chicken and more traditional types such as carnitas. Our mixed foursome of tacos ($12) and fried sweet plantains ($6.95) were tacolicious.
