Los Toros Mexican Restaurant
Over the last 45 years, thickets of ivy have climbed their way above the pink façade of Los Toros Mexican Restaurant, where the Montano family has been sharing its family recipes since 1967. Inside, aromas from the eatery's signature bean dip, burritos, enchiladas, and steaks waft past wall murals and mosaics that color multiple rooms including a garden patio, a dining area with big plush booths, and a bar dressed in printed tiles. Here, live musical acts coerce toes into tapping as a balloonist twists oxygen into a menagerie of animal shapes and presidential beards. Bartenders enhance the festive environment, which won a viewers' choice award from Best of LA TV in 2011, with 11 beers on tap and more than 60 different types of tequila that pour into signature margaritas.
