Review: Loteria Grill Hollywood

The original Loteria is a small stand at the Farmer's Market at the Grove, in the heart of Los Angeles. They opened up a second location in Hollywood this year, right in the heart of tourist central. Oh, and if you're lucky, you might just see Heidi and Spencer from the Hills eating there since I think it's one of their favorite places to suck down some premium tequila and pick at the mini tacos. I had a lovely lunch there, though, and the food is pretty reasonably priced for upscale Mexican. If you ask me, the original location still has a certain something that makes it a better place to eat. Maybe because the food still feels a little like it comes from a taco stand...and maybe because you can get a huge pitcher of beer to wash down all those chips. Whatever it is, this is still a great option for Mexican in the area.
