Culver City & West LA

Don Antonio's

image64

 Old school Mexican joint in West LA, Don Antonio's is essentially a place to get a ton of margaritas and some fajitas.  1/2 a chubby thumb up 


Must Eat: Chicken fajitas


Highs:  Cadillac Margarita and outdoor patio and great taco deals


Lows:  I don't like places where they ask if you want to pay more for white meat chicken 

Guerilla's Taco Truck

image65

 With a cult following and a classically trained chef, you should 100% go find the Guerilla Taco Truck on your next lunch break.  Ever changing tacos on what is fresh, it is the only food truck I will eat tuna from.  1 1/2 chubby thumbs up 


Must Eat: Tuna tacos when available


Highs:  Fresh, clean ingredients 


Lows:  It's a truck so you can't have it every day

Lodge Bread Company

 Whoever said you can't find good pizza in LA clearly does not know about Lodge Bread.  IMO this blows away Stella Barra, Pizzeria Mozza and whatever else you can throw my way.  Also, every piece of bread that comes out of their ovens is ridiculously good.  2 chubby thumbs up 


Must Eat: Literally everything


Highs:  Pizza, pita, hummus


Lows:   Veggie sandwich, seating 

Maple Block Meat Company

image67

 Brisket is king at this slow roast BBQ place.  Having had some of the best BBQ around the country, I have to say that Maple Block is tops in LA.  Chicken also is amazing.  1 1/4 chubby thumbs up 


Must Eat: Brisket with your hands


Highs:  Brisket, chicken, BBQ, cole slaw...plus you can sit outside


Lows:  You sit outside in a parking lot   

Sonorita's Prime Tacos

image68

 There is nothing prime about these tacos.  The best thing on the menu at this Sawtelle outpost is the Red Velvet Churros.  2 chubby thumbs down for this fake Mexican food. 


Must Eat: The churros


Highs:  Red velvet churros


Lows:  Everything else
