With painted murals on each wall and plenty of simple seating inside, Sharky's Mexican Grill makes an effort to position itself one step above the usual corporate chain Mexican restaurant. Menu items include south-of-the-border staples like fish or shrimp burritos, chicken enchiladas, chicken taquitos and fajita bowls, while organic offerings range from organic poblano brown rice to a tofu and vegetable blend that’s perfect for the health-conscious set. Located on the bustling corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Cahuenga Boulevard, this easygoing establishment offers metered parking right out front and a small free parking lot on its left side, while inside diners order at the counter, then snag an available table. Of course, it’s always possible to make the meal takeout, especially considering the tourist hordes that can sometimes overwhelm the space.
