Re Overrated: Malo [May 22]: My friends and I think Malo is one of the best Mexican restaurants in town. Everyone I have taken there has loved it.

The tequila list can't be beat, and the food is original, yet true to its Mexican roots, and yummy to boot!

The beef taco with pickles is simply phenomenal. There are probably 50,000 Mexican restaurants in L.A. that prepare their food more or less the same way, and you pick on one of the few that dare to be different.

Shame on you!
