When I visit my brother, we go to this small restaurant for menudo, the Mexican soup made with tripe and hominy. They have menudo at lunchtime on Saturdays and Sundays until they run out. The menu is long, and everything sounds delicious, but we love menudo and that’s what we always get. The cost for lunch for two people was... More

Old school since 1969. This place isn't for everyone, if you love nostalgia and time capsule places well this is the place for you. The couple running this place is friendly, the food is good, and the prices are spot on. Do not come here if you are the type that whines about how old an interior is or that... More

I have been going here for nearly thirty years, since I was but a toddler with my parents and now on my own introducing friends and coworkers to the fabulousness that is La Abeja. The service is thoughtful, the food is the best mexican food in L.A., especially the refried beans and huevos rancheros. The atmosphere is uninspiring but it... More
